Baseballs

Collecting, purchasing, or selling baseballs can certainly be a complicated process to someone who is new to doing these things. This article will show you how to collect, purchase, and sell game-used and autographed baseballs in a way that will provide the most enjoyment and profits at the same time.

The two best ways to collect a game-used or autographed baseball are at a ballpark or through a trusted dealer, whether online or in-person. What could be more fun than going to a baseball game and catching a foul ball or having a player toss you a ball after an inning? It is certainly a great thrill, and the best way to get one is to get a seat at the ballpark that is anywhere over the first base dugout. This is where the first baseman of the home team tosses the ball into the crowd after the inning has ended, and so there is a great chance that you will be able to get a game-used baseball in this area. Other than that, it is pretty much a toss-up during the game when it comes to catching a foul ball; they can happen anywhere and at any time. If you want better odds than this I would suggest considering a reputable dealer, either in-person or online.

When purchasing a game-used or autographed baseball first make sure that it is authenticated. What this means is that it was either witnessed that the particular baseball player signed the ball or a handwriting expert has determined it to be an original signature of the player. If you do not purchase a game-used or autographed baseball without any sort of authenticity attached to it there is a great possibility that it is not originally signed or actually used in a game. After purchasing a baseball it is important to have it preserved in some way or another, especially if it is autographed. The best way to preserve a baseball is to buy a baseball case for it. They are sold anywhere from ballparks to retail stores to ebay. Find one that fits your budget and that displays the baseball in a way that you want it to; they can come in very elaborate forms so make sure to have a particular budget and stick to it.

If you are interested in selling a game-used or autographed baseball, there are certain steps that should be taken. First, if you have not already, get the baseball authenticated in one way or another, especially if it is signed in any way. There are many great companies that you can find when quickly researching online that will authenticate it for you for a small fee. The easiest way to sell a game-used or autographed baseball is through an online marketplace such as ebay. When doing this though take into careful consideration any and all fees that may be involved. If you are looking for an alternative, consider visiting a store that deals with sports collectibles and see if they would be interested at all in purchasing your baseball. A word of caution however is to make sure that you are well informed about what price similar baseballs are going for on the market before going to the store. Remember that they are in it for the profit and will try to rip you off as much as they can if you are not informed about the baseball’s approximate worth.
