Vintage baseball posters are a fun and highly collectible item for the baseball enthusiast, as well as the serious sports memorabilia collector. Collectors may choose to collect baseball posters featuring one specific team or player, or perhaps just collect a variety of posters such as those that were handed out at stadiums. Several vintage baseball posters were the result of advertising by certain companies such as Budweiser, for example, or were made to promote a big sports event such as the World Series. Some baseball posters were also made as promotional items for fast food restaurants, and while at the time were readily available, are now collector’s items.

Things to look for when collecting vintage baseball posters include the overall condition of the poster. Check for wrinkles, tears, staining, or any other damage. Another thing to look for is the rarity of the poster. The fewer number of posters printed, the higher the collectible value will be. The popularity of the team, player, or event will also add or detract from the value of the poster. Another important factor to consider when purchasing any type of vintage poster, is to know for sure if you are buying an original poster, or a “print”, which is basically a newer copy of the original. These prints may also be referred to as a “reproduction”, which is not an actual antique and holds much less value than an original.
