Hottest 2017 Major League Baseball Memorabilia


How can the 2017 MLB season top the unforgettable season we watched in 2016.  The Chicago Cubs erased a 108-year title drought in the most dramatic fashion. Chicago Cubs memorabilia reached heights it had never seen before. The entire starting line-up: Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, Kyle Schwarber signed memorabilia was the hottest it had ever been.  The memorabilia industry as a whole had a big season as well. Autographed jerseys, baseball and photos were consistently selling.  Legends, prospects and All Stars all were being sold, traded and added to “Wish Lists”.  What can we expect in 2017?  


Get your sharpie ready, there are a few trends to note for MLB memorabilia collecting in 2017.  

1. Autographed Baseballs are still king.  Okay, I know I said trends but this is one collectible that will never lose luster. A pristine white, Rawlings Official Major League Baseball is still the #1 seller in baseball collectibles.  But who do you get to sign it? How about top prospects? Their value can skyrocket within months. Just look at Gary Sanchez last year, his baseball went from $50 to $150 in August alone. We believe the best targets this year are: Andrew Benintendi, Yoan Moncada, Dansby Swanson, Gleyber Torres and wait for it… Yes, Tim Tebow.


2. Pick a team. Double-down on a team and watch their value soar as they complete a October run. Fans who committed to the 2015 Royals reaped benefits, Cubs collectors who started early in 2016 saw their collection gain value. Who is the team for 2017? Thinking in terms of stars, prospects, and total potential, our pick to team to collect would be the Washington Nationals. The Nats boast one of the best young players in the league in Bryce Harper plus have a roster full of cheaper autograph options. The Nationals have had a few early exits in the postseason but are healthy and poised for a deep run.


3. Hall of Famers are still Hall of Famers. You do not have to get caught up in all the prospecting hoopla. Our industry has been buoyed by the young stars selling well, but the Hall of Famer players paved the way. There is still a HUGE market for Mickey Mantle, Pete Rose, Ted Williams and essentially all Cooperstown dwellers. There is always value in a classic autograph from Sandy Koufax, Yogi Berra, Willie Mays and more.

TheAutographCard.com - Never Miss An Autograph Opportunity


I received my first shipment of Autograph Cards from the good people over at TheAutographCard.com. I received the cards exactly one week after shipment notification. As a Canadian customer, I was completely surprised to receive the package so promptly. As expected, everything was packaged securely in a bubble envelope.

I have to admit, I was blown away by the quality of the cards. I will definitely be ordering more in the near future. My order consisted of Baseball Signature Cards, Hockey, Boxing, and Toronto Signature Cards from the City Series.


As I have stated in previous blog posts, a lot of athletes and celebs are starting to avoid signing blank sheets of white paper and index cards. These cards are perfect substitutes for blank sheets of white paper and index cards. Not to mention, The Autograph Card is much easier on the eyes. The design makes the autograph pop and the cards are much easier to store. I find these cards perfect for sending through-the-mail and in-person autographs.

If you look back at some of my older posts, you will see that I have coincidentally bumped into  athletes and celebrities at hotels, airports, and events. I will definitely be packing the cards in my autograph bag just incase another one of these unplanned meetings with an athlete or celeb should happen again.

 The Autograph Card - For Collecting In-Person and Through-the-mail

TheAutographCard.com features over 70 different styles of blank autograph cards designed for fans to collect autographs in-person and ttm.

• Printed on 16 pt. matte finish thick cover stock
• Trading Card Size: 3.5" x 2.5"
• Each pack contains 25 cards
• Signs perfectly with Sharpies and Staedtlers
