The pandemic has unexpectedly led to an unprecedented boom for sports cards. Whether it’s the boredom of the pandemic or the speculative mentality that fueled the Gamestop run-up, sports cards have become a serious business, with a number of high-value cards trading at all-time highs in the multi-millions. StarStock is a centralized platform structured as a stock market that allows serious and casual collectors to easily purchase and sell their favorite sports cards.
