Collecting New York Giants Sports Memorabilia

Jun 1, 2008
COLLECTING New York Giants collectibles or other sports memorabilia, can be limited by 3 things: 1) space, you have to have the room to display and or store the NY Giants items, 2) you have to have the time to scour Giants Memorabilia sites such as ours, 3) you must have the money as some items can be very expensive. Once you have these basic things in order, it is then up to you how to proceed. Often Collectors may look for authentic New York Giants Memorabilia which would include NY Giants shirts, caps, helmets jerseys and other fan items. Other Giants Football Memorabilia include items such as Cards Die cast Collectibles, Bobble Heads, Game and Player Posters, and many other things. Winning one of these items at auction is a thrill that may lead you to search for and collect more items.

One author described Sports Collecting like this: "The hobby of sports collecting consists of acquiring specific sports items based on a particular sporting interest of the sports collector. These sports collections of sporting things are often highly organized, carefully cataloged, and attractively displayed." NFL memorabilia is simply a manufactured item designed for people interested in collecting sports memorabilia. The term NY Giants sports memorabilia usually refers to items related to a recent New York Giants Historical event i.e. winning Super bowl 42 or a big sports personality. Many people from all over the world collect NFL memorabilia.

When the NBA, MLB, and NFL began selling their basketball, baseball, and football jerseys in stores during the 1980s, game used jerseys also became a hot item among sports memorabilia collectors. Former NBA player Dennis Rodman was famous for taking off his jerseys and throwing them to the stands after his games were over. Eli Manning who threw a 13-yard, go-ahead touchdown to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds remaining in the game, completing a 12-play, 83-yard drive in which the Giants converted three third downs, is probably the NY Giants player whose memorabilia is most sought after by collectors. The Giants pressured Brady through the entire game, never letting the great quarterback get into any rhythm. Justin Tuck (two sacks, six tackles, one forced fumble),led the defense as the Giants sacked Brady five times. These players seem to be pushing the already popular area of NY Giants sports collectibles and memorabilia to a new level.

Some collections are made up of a single item such as a signed jersey, football, or helmet or signed footbal, while other collections can take the form of a series of items, such as jerseys from each member of a the football team. A collection of hats from different championships is very popular. The New York Giants logo is especially popular as is the Super bowl 42 logo. The price of Giants collectible memorabilia is directly related to the popularity of the player with which the item correlates. The more popular the football player, the more money the sports collectible memorabilia item will cost you. As the sports collectible memorabilia industry is driven by supply and demand as more items are purchased and fewer are available these items have a greater value. For instance a MVP (Pat Borders) signed baseball I purchased for my brother as a Christmas gift after the Toronto Blue Jays won their first World Series which cost me $100 at that time is now worth well over $1,000. NY Giants cards are a good example. Only so many of certain cards were ever made. Those carry a higher price than those that are mass produced. Also the quality of your NFL memorabilia is a very big determining factor in it's price. Look for Genuine Authentic in Proof condition as these Items will retain the greatest value.
