EVOLUTION OF SPORTS TRADING CARDS FOR SALE
Sports trading card sales have certainly evolved over the years. For instance, buying a 24-pack box of 1961-62 Fleer basketball cards at the time it was released would have cost just $1.20. Goldin offered a BBCE-inspected box and investors were aggressive in bidding for the box containing Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, and Jerry West rookie cards, among many others.
