Sports cards have been having a renaissance of their own over the past year. With many bored at home throughout the pandemic, collectors of all ages found themselves rediscovering their love for trading cards. With that new interest has come higher prices, and Formula 1 cards are no exception.
According to eBay, the value of specific Formula 1 trading cards have spiked recently. In particular Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen cards are becoming more sought after by collectors, resulting in prices you’d probably not expect for Formula 1.
While the cost of Formula 1 trading cards is still far lower than that of basketball or football cards- it still serves as evidence of the hype around sports cards at the moment. Just a few years ago, the value of Formula 1 cards was relatively dismal.
