Business Overview

Buying sports memorabilia, such as teamjerseys, autographed sports celebrity photos, and sports equipment atdiscounted or bargain prices and then reselling the same memorabilia tocollectors and hardcore sports fans at a profit is a terrific littlepart-time homebased business venture to set in motion.

Initiating thisbusiness will require some time spent at flea markets, on the Internet,and rummaging through garage sales to find and purchase the sportstreasures. However, the payday can be large, especially when youconsider rare sports trading cards can fetch $1,000 or more.

Once aninventory of good quality sports memorabilia has been assembled it canbe resold by establishing a company Web site that sells sportsmemorabilia at sports trade shows and by even placing classifiedadvertisements in newspapers for the more rare and expensive sportsmemorabilia items for sale.
