Jackie Robinson Card Values | PSA Collector Guide
Jackie Robinson had a greater influence on major league baseball than perhaps any other individual and his importance to civil rights in the United States cannot be overstated. In addition, he was an incredible player that put together a Hall of Fame career in just 10 seasons. The following PSA Blog piece tells collectors what it takes to add a few of Robinson’s pasteboards to your hobby hoard.

The Johnny Robinson Football Story
It took more than 40 years to become reality, but Chiefs’ safety, Johnny Robinson, was finally inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2019. SMR looks back at the process to get him recognized, and how sharing a football card on Facebook was the beginning of the incredible journey.

PSA Set Registry Starter Kit: Mario Lemieux Prospect Set
Mario Lemieux is hockey royalty in the city of Pittsburgh. He is a Calder Trophy winner, two-time Stanley Cup champion, nine-time NHL All-Star, six-time Art Ross Trophy winner, three-time Hart Memorial Trophy recipient and a cancer survivor. No wonder they call him "Super Mario." SMR takes a look at the Mario Lemieux prospect set.

What Are My Michael Jordan Cards Worth?
What role do Hall of Famers play in your card and/or autograph collection?
  1. I only collect HOF athletes
  2. I have a handful of HOF that I collect, but that’s it
  3. I need them for my PSA Set Registry sets, but don’t bother beyond that
  4. The type of collecting that I do doesn’t require HOF players
