Football, Baseball, and Other Sports Card Values
Prices in the Vintage Football Card Gallery
I have provided approximate retail values for many of the vintage football cards pictured on this site. Use the Card Search on the left side of this page to search for your cards. As I have time, I will add values for more of the cards.
For an explanation of how I got the values, see my price guide page. For now I am pricing only cards in NM condition. If there is a demand, I will add values for other grades, as well.
Prices of Other Sports Cards
The estimate the values of cards that are not in the Gallery--or of those I have not priced yet--I recommend looking at recent prices on eBay. Looking at recent eBay sales will give you a good indication of what people will actually pay for your cards. Price guides such as Beckett (see below) are also popular.
Also see my blog article, V is for Values, and my gallery page on places to sell football, baseball, and other sports cards.
Finding Your Cards on eBay
To find recent eBay sales for your cards:
- Bring up the eBay Sports Card Finder.
- Use the Sports Card Finder to search for your card. I recommend choosing the set name and entering the player's name in the search field, e.g., "1981 Topps" and "Joe Montana."
- When the results for your search appear, choose the link that says "Show recent eBay sales for this search."
The condition of your cards is critical in determining their value, so look in the results for cards that are in the same condition as yours. Many of the cards you see will have grades assigned to them, either by the seller or a third-party grading company such as SGC or PSA. You can find descriptions of the grades on PSA's web site and SGC's web site.
Sports Card Price Guides
Beckett publishes the most popular price guides, and the guides are available on eBay. Beckett prints a separate guide for each sport.
