Trading Tip It's okay to say no. The odd time I'll get a bad feeling about a trade. There's not always a good reason, just a hunch. I trust my hunches and if a trade doesn't feel right a try to politely decline. - tip from www.tradercracks.com
Frequently Asked Question What is a Game-Used Memorabilia card? A game-used (game-worn, match-worn) memorabilia card contains a cut "swatch" of an authentic game-used jersey worn or used in an official sports game or match. Jerseys, shirts, warm-ups, balls, shoes, and even the floor from basketball arenas (among many other items) have been cut up and put onto trading cards.
Collectors have also taken to this concept since most cannot afford to purchase a full actual game-worn jersey themselves, as they either do not have access to the athletes or that much money to purchase them (most start at $2,000 and can run all the way over $100,000 at auction depending on the athlete).
Items are purchased directly from the player, agent, team, league, or from credible secondary market sources (such as auctions) and are thus authentic, used materials.
Usually, card manufacturers will cut the jersey into 1" x 1" swatches and then "sandwich" them between 2 pieces of cardboard. Autographed versions, versions with multiple colors of fabric, and versions with the jersey patches add more variety for those who want to take their collections to the next level.
The bottom line is that these cards bring collectors and fans closer to the game and allow them to own a piece of history.
Quick & easy. Thanks
