There are a couple of free baseball price guides, however the majority require a fee to be paid, and it is important for you to take into account that the price guides that charge money will be more credible and accurate compared to the free guides. For example, www.beckett.com is probably the most popular and credible in terms of valuing baseball cards. In addition, www.portasite.com and www.tuffstuff.com are also used frequently for these valuations.

If you’re looking to find the value of one of your baseball cards you firstly need to note some specific information that identifies the card in question. For example, look for the card manufacturer name, the name of the player, the set that the card belongs to and the year it was produced. You should also make sure you determine the correct condition of the card as it will be assessed as poor, fair, good, very good, excellent, gem mint, mint and near mint. So in this case you should make a note of any creases, tears, smudges and worn edges.

Once you’ve chosen the online pricing guide, you should search for your particular card. The majority of guides will offer a number of values whereas others simply state one value; however you need to keep in mind that the guides that present only one value are assuming that your card is in mint condition. Moreover sometimes a guide will show a high and a low value for a card, and in this case, the condition of your card will determine which range it falls under. It would be a good idea for you to check a few price guides so you can get a general estimate of how much your baseball card is worth because some of the sites don’t update their values regularly so in reality your card may be worth much more than you are seeing online. In addition to this you should keep an eye on live auction sites and baseball card trading forums so you can discover how much money your card is going for in real time.
