The sports collecting hobby and industry is booming!
With The National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago, just six weeks away, it’s the perfect time to take a look at sports collecting, with Rich Mueller of Sports Collectors Daily.
Mueller, a long-time television sports anchor and reporter and online journalist is President of Sports Collectors Daily Incorporated and the editor of SportsCollectorsDaily.com. He has earned numerous honors throughout his career including several prestigious Edward R. Murrow awards for sports reporting.
Whether you collect rare sports memorabilia, vintage sports cards, the latest sports card releases, game-worn jerseys, sports autographs, ticket stubs or something else, you can probably find a story about it on Sports Collectors Daily. The site has become a ‘bookmark’ and ‘must read’ for every sports collector, sports memorabilia shop owner, card show promoter or investor.
“Our traffic continues to grow. But please tell your friends. We hate blank stares or long pauses on the phone after introducing ourselves.”
At least 20 fresh pieces of content are added over the course of one month alone thanks in part to some talented writers, contacts inside and outside the industry and a good old fashioned nose for news. There are other sites in the industry that offer “articles” (many of which are simply re-writes of others’ work) but no other site can match the professional experience and journalistic quality of Sports Collectors Daily. We set the standard.
Rick and Rich talk sports collecting, The National and how hard it is to cover the industry as it constantly goes through changes. Engaging talk if you ever collected baseball cards, autographs or are looking to get back in the hobby.
