SMR 100

The SMR Market Index is based on a compilation of the NM-MT prices for the 100 most important pre-1970 sportscards. Calculations are based on the percentage of price movement for each of the 100 cards since August 1, 1980. According to the SMR 100, $1,000 worth of NM-MT sportscards purchased August 1, 1980 would be worth $68,942.40

 

The sportscard market is volatile and thinly capitalized. Significant short-term price swings are always possible, and past performance is not a reliable indicator of future growth or growth potential. Buying sportscards for investment carries many risks, and sportscards may be an unsuitable investment for certain investors. The SMR, its editors, and Collectors Universe, Inc. make no warranty that the sportscard market in general, or any sportscard in particular, will increase in value at all, or over any specific period of time. You buy and sell sportscards at your own risk.
