Welcome!

Hi! My name is Matt and I run this blog.

Sport Card Collectors blog was established on March 1st of 2012 on a whim. I wanted to expand my collecting to the world of social media and found this to be a great outlet. I started sport card collecting in 1994 and have been growing more into the hobby ever since.

I sometimes regret the name I chose for the blog as it's plural and the blog is run by one person, however, I look at the hobby as a group and to me we all are sport card collectors. #OneHobby as I always say. If we aren't doing this together, then why bother.

This blog covers all areas from the 80's, 90's to today in pack and box breaks. I wished I could cover more vintage but my knowledge does not run that far back and my collection doesn't either. There are  mail day showings, PC highlights of my PC's of Ken Griffey Jr, NY Yankees, NY Giants, Rodney Hampton, Psych Autographs, Non Sport Cards and 1990's cards along with some opinion and informational postings as well. I also review products and do giveaways when possible.

I also love to help out collectors whenever possible so if you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will give you my honest opinion.

You can contact me:
  1. Facebook
  2. Twitter
  3. Email at sportcardcollectors@hotmail.com.
I also wanted to make note of some picture problems the blog came upon in 2017. Please read the following,

You will notice on Sport Card Collectors that some photographs are missing from some of the older articles from 2012-2014. I apologize for this.

As you may have heard, Photobucket changed the rules on how they share photos with 3rd parties. Now if you don't pay for their once free program, you lose out on using the site and any photos you have once shared. You can read more of my rant here,

Thanks Photobucket, But Not Thanks

Instead of sitting down and wasting time deleting posts or trying to re-put pictures into posts, I thought giving you an apology and warning on why some pictures are missing was my easiest option.

Thanks for the understanding.

  3. I agree that JSA authentication is questionable. They charge outrageous fees and haven't become so strict they turn down everything. They have an office here in Fort Lauderdale. I took some of the autographs that I have personally obtained. I saw them being signed in front of me. They told me they were all fakes and charged me $230. I will not be using JSA again.
