About Rookie

In the world of trading cards, nothing is more valuable than the rookie card. Why is this? When you hear of Barry Bonds rookies or Michael Jordan rookies selling for hundreds of dollars, have you ever wondered why this is? During his first year, a professional sports player is unproven. He must, over the course of his career, reach great heights. But, during his rookie year, there is much that is uncertain.Because of this uncertainty, collectors often value rookie cards lower than cards of established stars. The main determinant in a rookie card's increase in value is time. Let's say that, for example, the rookie becomes a legend over 10 or 15 years. Those who held on to the player's rookie cards in Mint or Near Mint condition are in good shape, because they correctly predicted his rise to stardom.Why not just buy all the rookies, you might ask? Because this habit becomes expensive, especially if you want multiple copies of each card. The most expensive rookie cards are of players who, at the point of their induction into the league, did not show promise but later blossomed into stars. It is even rarer that someone would have held onto that rookie card, if that is the case.If you're looking to buy rookie cards online, it is always a good idea to ask for a PSA rating or DNA rating. These ratings are completed by third-party services who independently grade the authenticity and quality of trading cards. Often, rookie cards are old, so it becomes more difficult to tell a fake from a real card. Cards made today have authentication tags, holograms, and individually licensed numbers that are harder to duplicate.
