yogi berra museum appraisalHave you ever wondered what that stash of old Topps baseball cards stashed in your attic is worth? Soon, you can find out.

The Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center will be hosting “America’s Roadshow,” its version of PBS’ Antiques Roadshow, on Sat. Sept. 21 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Experts from Robert Edward Auctions will be providing free appraisals of visitors’ items. The Watchung, NJ-based company has specialized in all areas of baseball collectibles, as well as other sport and non-sport memorabilia and cards, for more than 30 years.

The event is sponsored by Collectibles Insurance Services, LLC of Hunt Valley, Md., which will have staff on hand to discuss insurance needs with owners.  Also at the event will be James Spence Authentication, a leading autograph authentication service that offers certification on signed items related to sports, history and pop culture.

There’s more: visitors to the event will also have a rare opportunity to hold game-used bats, for a fee, from baseball greats such as Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Derek Jeter, and Jackie Robinson through RLC Events and Exhibits and Pastime Acquisitions LLC.  Also, Topps Trading Cards sketch artist Brett Farr will be displaying his artwork and providing free sketches of renowned athletes with a purchase from Historic Pen Editions.

The appraisal service is free (three items per person) with regular admission to the Museum. Sports fans–especially baseball fans–will not want to miss out.

    Can items other than Baseball be valued?

    There is always someone, somewhere, who is willing to put a value on anything and everything. This event sounds interesting. I’m thinking that it might be fun to see, at the low end of the “baseball legend” scale, what my autographed A-Rod bat is currently worth, and then, at the high end, a Jackie Robinson autograph that my husband has had since he was a kid. They don’t make ‘em like they used to.

The coffee is fantastic. So is the food! It is around the corner from Nicolo's bakery, for those readers not familiar with the area.
