College trading cards are quite rare, as NCAA rules are very strict regarding compensation for players. If a card is available, it was probably issued by the school, which the athlete attends. Cards that spark the greatest interest are those of athletes who have achieved notable milestones, or the team reached the milestone or won a championship. The particular sport is important also, with football, basketball, and baseball carrying the highest value. Men’s cards are more desirable than those of female athletes. Card condition is important, so care should be taken to protect it from damage and deterioration. Refrain from having the card autographed.
