As the focal point of a game room, a historical artifact, a piece of art, or a souvenir to mark a memorable season or moment, sports memorabilia can have great significance to its buyers. This section links to the most trustworthy memorabilia sites, so you can be sure that you're buying an authentic item.
- There has been a lot of concern in recent years about rampant fraud in the online sports memorabilia business. Auction sites like eBay have made it increasingly easy for people to pass off fake items as the real thing. A 2006 story by Armen Keteyian for Hall of Fame Magazine details the problem.
- Take great care when buying memorabilia online to verify the credibility of your sources. Always evaluate their authenticity policies, and if there's ever a question, attempt to learn more by researching the company or distributor.
- Official league and team Web sites have shops (and, in many cases, auctions) where you can find authentic memorabilia. Links to such pages can be found in the navigation bars on the respective league's homepage. For more information on league sites, check the "Finding Player, Team and League Information" section in this guide.
- The major online price guides have features that, for a fee, allow you to catalog your collection online and update its value automatically.
