So many people ask what a baseball card, a coin, a stamp, or some other collectable is worth. It's not really a question that can be answered without seeing the item. For one thing, the condition of the item must be evaluated. The total number of that item that was produced also must be taken into account as well as the number still existence. For example, just because a coin is old doesn't make it valuable. The age is merely one factor taken into account when determining it's worth. Just as a new car depreciates in value once it's driven off the lot, a collectables worth diminishes once it's put into public circulation.
