Card Shows draw some of the most enthusiastic traders in the country. With Passionate traders come legendary cards.The most popular option is one of discount card seekers. EBay has totally changed the face of the collectible world. It has helped lower the value of many items due to the fact they are so much easier to find. A friend of mine has a 1990s Nolan Ryan card autograph that is numbered to 2000. Back in the early 90's this card was in the $400-500 range. Now, due to Nolan signing everything placed in front of him and the wonderful world of eBay, you can purchase the same card for $50-100. There is also a convenience factor in which one can purchase cards from the seat of their couch. An instant classic such as Gordie Howe can be found for a great price on a website such as eBay. If you are into trading, one of the best sites on the web would be Clouts and Chara. The site allows users to post items for trade, tell people what you are looking for, and also see the details of a trade. There are postings to see what people are trading to keep up with the latest values and trends. It’s a great way ask, listen, and be active in the trading card community. The last suggestion is one that is almost as old as the hobby itself: trading with friends. I have around 10 friends who all collect and trade differentcollectables, teams, and players. Each friend is into something different, a netwrok of trading relationships is created, bound with the common interest of improving each person's trading card inventory. Pucks, Sticks, and Pigskins.
