Red Cape Sports shares their thoughts on F1 sports cards for beginners in this very informative video.
More people are getting into collecting Formula One sports cards, also known as F1 cards. These cards feature various drivers and teams, along with car specifications. Some people consider F1 sports cards as a form of entertainment, and they may even include 3D effects. Newer editions are usually more detailed. If you’re interested in collecting these cards, here are some tips for you:
Lewis Hamilton is the king of F1 and variations of his cards can fetch well over USD$1k, and the rarer ones can go up to USD$10k. Other cards with similar drivers, like Max Verstappen, also command reasonable prices and might increase in value if he wins the championship in 2021. Next up in the hierarchy are Lando and Charles cards. If you’re not sure which driver to collect, here are some of the most popular cards:
Lewis Hamilton – While you’re searching for F1 cards with this driver, look for one that has a picture of him celebrating his recent victory. The Sports Illustrated card mentions his record as the youngest Formula One world champion. Another card shows Hamilton in his earlier years in a McLaren car. Note that he was initially released on a perforated sheet with eight other sports stars. This can affect the condition of a standalone card.
Lewis Hamilton – The hottest driver in the sport, Hamilton is known for his incredible speed. His roaring speed and stunning looks make him a prime candidate for collectors. But despite his recent disappointment in the championship, Hamilton is still a top contender for the F1 championship. The top-priced F1 Hamilton is a prime example of this. In fact, Hamilton’s 2020 Topps Chrome F1 card is currently selling for $21,963 on eBay, which is an incredible price.
Investing in sports cards is a serious business, and you should be aware of the risks involved. As with any investment, you should only invest in cards that you are familiar with. A second-rate card might not be worth your time, but a first-edition set will have long-term value. This is because the first edition set is much more valuable than a common card, and will be in high demand for years to come.
Lastly, don’t underestimate the value of autographed cards. A signed card from a GP weekend is likely to be worth much more than the original. The same holds true for printing plate cards, which were once the standard for coloured cards. They look similar to the negatives of old 35mm films. Unless they are signed by an autographed driver, they’ll be worth even more than the original card.
