Sports Collectables

Interesting how these items have dropped in value. I wonder what they will fall to when the dust has settled on the steroid/HGH controversy in MLB.

"Previously we've sold bats like this for $20,000, one for close to $30,000," he says. "I warned the owner that there was a risk of it going for $5,000 to $6,000. But some people are dumping their Bonds items because they just don't want them in their collections anymore."
Roger Clemens, who is currently embroiled in a he-said/he-said battle heading to a possible Congressional hearing, also brought in lower bids. "We had a game-used New York Yankees jersey from Roger Clemens from the 2000 World Series that sold for $3,586," says Allen. "That's a jersey that would have gone for $6,000 to $8,000." The seven-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher was, until the allegations surfaced, a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame.

It's been awhile since I've looked up the supposed value of my sports cards. Is there an online site these days that lists card values that's fairly well-respected among dealers and collectors?
