Topps is synonymous with baseball cards, owning the Bowman brand for quite a few years. However, Topps is also known for making the most iconic basketball cards of all time, the Topps Chrome rookie cards of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

2020-2021 Panini Prizm Basketball Blaster sports card boxes can be a great deal! Or can they? Well, in the eyes of a collector who is hoping to sell these boxes or their contents for a profit down the road, it can be hard to say. These things are a great deal because they are cheap, while still offering a chance for profit. On the other hand, they can be so hard to acquire because of online internet bots and long lines at retail stores such as Walmart and Target that just the effort of buying one of these alone can sink your chances at a profit. So what are my thoughts on the subject, and how I approach this? Are these good investments for sports card collectors or investors? Find out today on the Powers Sports Memorabilia Show!

When it comes to the Sports Card Hobby, 2021 has been off to one crazy start. PSA was continuing to be backlogged, then they raised their prices, and now this! PSA has shut down most sports card grading services until July 2021. What does this mean for the hobby? Effect on current PSA graded cards? Effect on other card grading companies such as BGS, HGA, SGC, and CSG? Also, what is your game plan going forward? As a sports card collector and investor it is important to have options. In today's episode of The Powers Sports Memorabilia Show, I go over those with you and discuss how PSA can possibly avoid this backlog in the future.
Today is the day! If you've been excited about the new Panini Basketball 2020/21 Hobby Box, then you can finally get your hands on it now! Well, okay, probably not. The hype for this box has been insane. So insane, that sites such as eBay and Blowout Cards have had preorder prices greater than $2000. For some, this might be way out of budget. Of course, as collectors it's understandable, the itch to get this next thing, but is it actually worth it? Will you recoup your money from a purchase like this? Panini Prizm basketball is one of the most sought after brands in the sports card industry. Collectors and investors love this product. However, in the last few years it has become VERY expensive. LaMelo Ball is the rookie card everyone is looking for. Do you even have a chance to pull one?
Without a doubt, the sports card hobby is having an amazing run the past few years. Sports card shops are opening up and being successful. Collectors and investors are make great money and adding epic cards to their collections. With all the videos I've made about it, that should speak for itself by now. Still, I don't know if I've ever made it clear how other sports card collectors become successful and enjoy the hobby for decades. What is it they do? How are they so admired? How do they remain so positive? For sure I keep up with the latest trends and sports news. Continually look for new items to add to my collection, and opportunities to turn a profit, but there is more to it than that. I think you'll be surprised by these 5 rules because they aren't as obvious as you might think. Still, without a doubt, successful collectors do these 5 things because they both improve their own lives and sports card collections, as well as those of others.
I can just not believe this. Would I have done this myself? Definitely not, but someone did, and total congratulations to them for adding what they believe is a great card to their basketball collection. LaMelo Ball's 1st ever PSA 10 graded 2020 Panini Prizm rookie card just sold on eBay for a staggering amount. LaMelo Ball is going to be a great basketball player but did this collector over pay? Was this a good sports card investment? NBA sports cards have been increasing in value A TON since the new 2021 season started. LaMelo Ball is the star rookie card everyone is after. But is this TOO much of a price to pay for his Prizm rookie card? I want to look at this insane sports card sale from a fresh perspective though. Could a purchase like this ever make sense? Was it a good choice? Was it a bad choice?
With all the sports in the world, it is of course so easy for many to fall under the radar. Of course for your at home life, this isn't any kind of problem, but what if you want to take your collection or investment strategy to another level? Well, then you might be missing out all of a sudden. A great example of this is the soccer sports card world. As Americans, soccer can easily fly under the radar for most people, but it is a world renowned sport with amazing and exceptional athletes that should be welcome parts of your collections. It seems now though, that people are catching onto the soccer world, so what's next? UFC, that's what. With major personalities in the industry that are known by name across the globe, you probably do not want to be sleeping on UFC sports cards. Conor McGregor is a HUGE superstar with tons of value as a card investment. Also, with 2021 UFC Prizm set to release in April 2021, many collectors are on the fence about collecting UFC cards. Do they represent a HUGE OPPORTUNITY? What are the cards to collect? Who are the fighters? How can we tell that UFC is worth it, and what kinds of options and names should you be looking out for?
