I keep hearing about a feature exclusive to Beckett Media where you can input your entire collection into a database and it spits out a nice little report. Now, I don’t have time to sit on the computer for the next two weeks and input my close to 800 different Jose Canseco cards to test out their system so instead I chose to feature my only other player collection, Andrew Miller.
All you need is a FREE Beckett account and some spare time and with a little work you will come out with a nice, nifty report in no time. This is a screen capture of my report for Andrew Miller.
The only thing you don’t get is the book value (look at “Subscribe Now!”) Of course, what that means is you have to send money. Their cheapest package is $5.99 for a month subscription and the most expensive goes for $54.99 for an entire year. Definitely a great value if you sell a lot of stuff or are a big time Super Collector but for me I am thankful for their free service for my humble collection. I expected that my 19 Andrew Miller cards would equal to about 60% of all cards released of this young pitcher but as it turns out, there are 542 released which gives me a percentage of….(help me out, nerds!).
Below are three of my favorite Miller cards that I own. The Beckett My Collections doesn’t add the price of very rare cards (low numbered, etc.) or cards that have not hit the magazine (Topps ’52) but overall it is a very nice way to keep track of your favorite player’s cards!
