3 Crucial Tips for Selling Sports Memorabilia at a Pawn Shop, Brighton, New York

If you’re trying to earn some extra cash, sports memorabilia can be especially lucrative. Collectors will pay good money for genuine memorabilia, such as a ball, glove, or helmet signed by a sports legend who is no longer here. Finding these collectors can sometimes take a while, and when you’re in a hurry to get cash, it might not be an option to go on the hunt for one. Instead you can visit a trusted pawn shop in your area.

When you visit a pawn shop with your sports memorabilia, here are a few tips to follow to help you make the most money off your collectibles: 

  • Have Certification: When you bring your items to a pawn shop, they have to perform extensive research before they can give you cash. The majority of this research can be reviewed faster if you come prepared with certification.pawn-shop-rochester-ny
  • Know The Item's History: Usually after doing extensive research about an autograph or item that might have belonged to an athlete, the pawn shop can tell the customer about its authenticity and even from what point in time the item originates. However, if you’re prepared to receive the best deal for your memorabilia, you should do this research yourself ahead of time. For example, if you’re trying to sell an autographed item, know approximately how many autographs are in existence, when the item was signed (Was it a big event like a playoff or championship game?), and how popular the item is. 
  • Bring In Cared For Items: If your baseball was signed by Babe Ruth, but it is no longer legible, chances are no one is going to buy your ball. This care also translates to the ball condition as well. Be sure to take care of any collectibles in your possession, because if you want to sell them at a pawn shop one day, they will be worth more if they are in good condition.
