Description by

At an auction that followed the 1998 season, a single baseball sold for more than $3 million. Around the country, hats, bats, cards, jerseys and photos have likewise sold for hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars, and posh auction houses like Sotheby's in New York have become familiar venues to dealers and private collectors. And with the mounting number of challenges to the game's most honored records and the passing of some of its most beloved and recognizable names, baseball memorabilia is increasingly in demand.

This book instructs both the hardened hobbyist and the uninitiated in the best ways to obtain autographed baseball memorabilia, providing insider information on making person-to-person and mail requests, purchasing from dealers and online auctions, and trading and networking with other collectors. The author also suggests a step-by-step approach to designing displays and building specialized, meaningful collections, ranging from the conventional (Hall of Fame autographs) to the unusual (players' handwritten responses to survey questions).
