Treasure Hunters Roadshow buys memorabilia, Sports provide entertainment and give us a form of escapism. In what other area of life can you yell at the top of your lungs in public without any repercussions? Some fans are drawn to the athletic precision; others are attracted to the bonding that sports create with family and friends. Many of us follow a particular team, while some are more enamored with individual players. Either way, our closets and drawers are full of our favorite athlete’s or team’s sports memorabilia. From autographs to mugs, jerseys and sports cards, we spend billions of dollars annually on souvenirs. Sports memorabilia not only has great sentimental value to us, but some items have exceptional monetary value to other collectors as well. Connoisseurs are willing to pay large sums of money for vintage, rare and unusual items.
Treasure Hunters Roadshow (THR) is a leader in the sports memorabilia market. They buy thousands of items each week from local sellers, like you, and in turn sell those collectibles to hobbyists and professionals around the world. The strength of THR is having an established global network, providing access to millions of collectors who are ready and willing to buy. Some of us take our sports very seriously. Whether it’s playing, watching, cheering or jeering, sports are a favorite pastime in the United States. It is estimated that upwards of 70% of the population is a sports fan of some type. Serious, loyal fans are accustomed to experiencing a roller coaster of emotions from game to game and season to season. Moments of euphoria are followed by episodes of stress (called eustress). The tension actually heightens our senses and creates an unusual feeling of pleasure.
Some of the recent finds in memorabilia are: A 1909 T206 Honus Wagner baseball card sold for $1.62 million in 2008. The massive Louisville Slugger used by Babe Ruth to hit the first Yankee Stadium home run sold at auction for $1.26 million in 2004. While collectibles of this caliber are rare, there are still countless items worth tens of thousands of dollars just waiting to be discovered in closets and attics throughout the world. The original ‘rules of basketball’ notes, written by the inventor of the game, James Naismith, were sold at auction for $4.4 million in 2010. The 70th home run ball hit by slugger Mark McGwire was auctioned for $3 million in 1999. If you have any if the sports collectables you can come and cash in the Treasure Hunters Roadshow events.
