Wikipedia has (at least for the relative newcomer, me) some really good write-ups of soccer players, although I think they overuse the "considered one of the greatest footballers ever" a bit.

-Maradona early and Barcelona cards YES
-Messi MegacrackA. YEA

I have just returned from the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland. I can say the soccer card industry is expanding. Panini, Topps and Leaf all are producing soccer for the American market. This is the most ever. In addition, the high end product is almost scary with $500 boxes which guarantee autograph cards.

I have a good amount of cards to trade including some George Best, Figo, Ronaldo, Platini and other rarer issues that people have mentioned here.

I have a few extra sample cards made just for the NSCC show.

I'm looking for Beckenbauer, Pele, Puskas, Cryuff and Chinaglia. But I'm open to anything interesting I don't have in my collection.

Just got back last night from The National as well. Don't mind saying I was a little (just a little) disappointed. It was huge and there were tons of people but, for me personally, a serious lack of diversity.

If you ignore the stuff put out in the last 5 or so years, there was practically nothing from the non big-4 sports. I saw one Pele, two Cassius Clays (saw both sell) and zero anything else from soccer, boxing, tennis, golf (a few 81 donruss), racing, etc. Some pretty cool non-sport and early Olympic at the same table as the Clays, but that's it out of over 600 tables.

While I'm rolling, I hear a lot about trying to get the younger generation into collecting. Plenty of kids with their parent digging through boxes, but again, literally did not see one Chloe Kim, Shaun White, Simone Biles, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Speith, Alex Morgan, Serena Williams, Michael Phelps, etc. The list goes on and on.

Obviously it's up to the dealers to put out what they feel will sell. I was just hoping for a little variety. You can only look at so many '86 Fleer Jordan's, 1960s Mantles and probably 150 tables of Bowman Chrome Autos.

Okay, rant over. As you were.

Default Soccer Cards I Collect

I got into soccer cards 10 years ago when I wanted to invest in Sports Cards and after looking at the market, I decided that soccer cards and specifically Pele, looked to be a good investment. So I started buying up Pele cards.

At that same time I was collecting vintage Red Sox, but I quickly exhausted my budget and got to the point where all vintage Red Sox cards I didn't have cost >$200, which was outside of my budget at the time. So instead I started buying more and more soccer cards because I could get lots of cool cards from all over the world for not very expensive prices. I love that in an average week I'll get mail from England, Italy, Croatia, and Brazil - it's pretty cool!

Now I consider myself a soccer card collector, which is ironic because the only soccer I ever follow actively is the World Cup. I've still never sold any of my soccer card 'investments,' but have built a moderate collection of cool soccer cards along the way.

Soccer cards I collect are:
  • Pele - I love Pele cards/stickers/discs and have a lot of them. I am trying for one of each card from his playing years. I am more interested in rare cards than high-grade cards
  • 1950 Tinghalls - especially team USA & rare backs
  • Vintage Billy Meredith, Steve Bloomer & GO Smith UK cards
  • Vintage Nasazzi & Andrade cards
  • Vintage Zamora and Alcantara Spanish cards
  • Rookies of Soccer stars, vintage & modern
  • 1970 Panini World Cup blue/red back cards
  • 1938 Union König Fussball Dixie Dean, Nasazzi, Zamora (I want to collect all 5 different backs of all 3 players)

If you have anything you would be willing to part with that might fit with my collecting interests above, let me know

I have been lazy about posting on this forum, but am glad to see more soccer card discussion, so I will try to start posting as well to keep the conversation going.

-Jonathan

Not my primary collecting focus, but I have a budding collection of vintage defunct Washington DC/Baltimore soccer teams memorabilia (Whips, Darts, Dips, Washington Stars, Virginia Capitol Cavaliers, Washington Cavaliers, Warthogs, Freedom, Bays, Comets, Blast)

My brother also collects Panini Wold Cup stickers, including the endless variations of packets, albums, etc.

Very, very nice list. I LOVE the Union Konig cards and Tinghalls cards.
