Starting Your Collection
There are many ways to collect, but a good start is by focusing on your favourite teams or players and collecting those cards.
What Type of Cards Should I Collect?
Collect what you enjoy collecting, whether it's rookies or certain players or a certain team or autographed cards or game used cards. Years ago, collectors used to just collect "error" cards. Some collectors in the 1960s only collected "food-issue" cards, meaning cards issued by companies such as Wheaties, Post Cereal and Kellogg's. Many collectors today only collect Vintage cards, meaning cards prior to the 1970s. The choices of various cards on the market should not confuse you, as much as they should offer you opportunity to choose what you prefer to collect. Trading cards offer something for everyone, and can $1 to over $100 per pack - the higher the price, the more content and inserts you'll find!
Where Can I Purchase Cards?
West Edmonton Coin & Stamp carries a wide array of cards in-store!
Trading Card Values
Like coins and stamps, the value of a particular card is contingent on many factors, including rarity, condition, and overall demand. Your best bet is usually on rookie cards or autographs.
