Collecting Sports Legends

To the casual observer, the gap between those smudgy-faced depression kids of yesteryear and today’s mega-collectors would seemingly have to be measured in light-years. But, according to Joe Orlando, the president of PSA and PSA/DNA who also serves as the editor-in-chief of “Sports Market Report,” the differences between those who prize a single card and those who own collections that are of museum quality in both size and content are minimal. That observation became clear to him as he worked on his latest book, Collecting Sports Legends – The Ultimate Hobby Guide (Zyrus Press, 2008).
