As the decades’ pass, so too does the value of former legends that have since passed away. Fans will seek out collectibles of their sporting heroes as a way to honor their memories on and off the playing field. Think of it as owning a piece of artwork from a famous artist.

When first getting started, it can be daunting to try and figure out which brands are best. The three most prominent trading card brands are Panini, Topps, and Upper Deck. Each brand has an exclusive deal with one of the major sports leagues, making it the official trading card for that sport. Panini has recently become one of the most recognizable trading card brands in the world, having signed exclusive deals with the NBA and NFL. Topps continues to be the home for officially licensed MLB cards, while Upper Deck rounds out the trio as the NHL’s official trading card partner.
