Beginning as a collector

-With as little as a few dollars, you can start a collection of your own. First, you need to decide how much money you can afford to spend on your collection and what type of memorabilia you want to acquire. Then survey the varying types of memorabilia out there in the marketplace. This will give you a general idea of how much you may want to spend and what it is you may want to collect. 

It is useful to read through other customer reviews for a specific online seller or memorabilia collector so that you can determine his or her trustworthiness. However, you should approach this with caution as these reviews could have been written by the seller themselves. On the other hand, sports fan who desire a certain item but receive poor service or faulty goods will more than likely want to warn other collectors against buying from the same person via seller feedback.
