Aaron Judge’s record-setting 52nd home run jersey hits auction block

Are all buyback autographed cards the same? Not this one …

It’s got some rough edges, fuzzy corners, some light surface snow, and a curved-but-not-awful corner crease — but it’s got some character and it’s mine.

And it’s also signed by Rickey Henderson.

It’s a copy of his 1980 Topps Rookie Card and it’s also a recent pickup from a major autograph dealer. It’s also a story that has a few pieces that this collector thought made it interesting enough to present right here.

Does the slab make the card? It doesn’t hurt these (gallery + poll)


Slabbed cards have been a part of the hobby for decades now but a few autograph companies have started getting into the trend in recent years by encasing cards to give them a bit better display presence at a fraction of the price for a signed photo or memorabilia piece.

And it helps that while storage and protection concern go away, too.

Two big autograph dealers — Steiner Sports and Fanatics Authentic — have pretty beefy runs of signed trading cards available that in some cases take the interesting creations of card companies and makes them better.

Trading Connor Shaw for a legendary PC piece via Steiner Sports

ConnorShawIf you’re a long-time reader of The Buzz, you may remember the Steiner Sports promotion that allowed anybody, anywhere to trade in a legit Cleveland Browns quarterback autograph from the past for a $100 gift card.

Buzz’s headline back in January played up the Johnny Manziel drama — sadly, it’s derailed completely since then — and but opted to take a shot here with a cheaper auto. Buzz picked off a Connor Shaw 2014 Panini Contenders autograph from COMC.com for just $1.99, had it delivered, followed the instructions from Steiner and mailed it in.

Buzz waited but never received a gift card — as it turns out, Steiner had so many requests as part of the promotion that it ran out of physical gift cards to mail. (Those still waiting should email the company with their info and address they used when they mailed in their Browns item.) After getting the discount info, Buzz waited again to find a key item to use the code. Today was the day as Buzz spent a few minutes to check out the site after a promotional email, wondering if a worthy item could be found and searching the game-used section, entertainment section and even the clearance rack for the right item.

And then Buzz found it.

Full game-used memorabilia may not be as expensive as you think

RymerLiriano299Game-used collecting has changed immensely in the last 20 years or so with the memorabilia card — you know, those little swatches embedded into cards that can still get us going if it’s the right player or an impressively designed piece of cardboard.

Relics may not always be expensive these days, but they can add some definite variety and surprise into packs of cards — and partly because of the need for game-used items for cards it seems memorabilia has become more available than ever.

It’s not always expensive. In fact, it can be downright enticing to chase jerseys of players who you might not see all that often on cardboard (or even like!) simply because there are game-used bargains to be found.
