1. Hobby Boxes for Sports Fans and Collectors

A great gift idea for sports fans and sports card collectors is a hobby box. A hobby box is a factory-sealed box that contains multiple packs of highly-collectible sports cards. Many hobby boxes are guaranteed to include autographs and/or special memorabilia inserts, such as relic cards and unique parallel cards. They are perfect for the person who loves sports, regardless of whether or not they are an active sports card collector. From kids to adults, opening up a hobby box of their favorite sport is sure to bring a smile to their face!

If you know a sports fan of the NBA, a great place to start would be the latest NBA releases of the year, which include:

  • Highly sought-after parallels
  • Inserts
  • Autograph content 
  • Cards from the top superstars and hall-of-famers

Whether your gift recipient loves football, soccer, baseball, UFC, or other sports, hobby boxes are a top gift for sports fans that they’ll appreciate. Hobby boxes from leading brands, like Panini and Topps, include new releases, classic collectibles, and all of the top players. These are some of the go-to options for sports fans and collectors in the market for an impressive sports card collection or to crack open the hottest new boxes. Unsure what they would like best? Grab them a gift card and let them decide what they want the most!

2. Autographed Memorabilia

Another great gift for sports fans is autographed memorabilia. This can be anything from an autographed photo or baseball to a signed jersey. If you know the person's favorite team or player, try to find something related to them. Autographed memorabilia can be found online or at sports memorabilia stores and is a great way to commemorate a favorite player or team. 

Not sure what they would like? You can also get them a gift card, so they can buy their own autographs. 

When picking autographed memorabilia, make sure to look for items that come with a certificate of authenticity and are from a reputable company. This will ensure that the item is authentic and not fake, as the market is unfortunately flooded with phony autographs. Prices for autographed memorabilia vary depending on the item and who it is signed by. The more valuable and personalized a gift for sports fans is, the more expensive it will be. But it will be worth it to see the look on their face when they open up this unique and thoughtful gift.

3. Tickets to a Sporting Event They Love

What could be more exciting than watching the game live? If you know the person you're shopping for is a big fan of a particular team, get them tickets to see their favorite team play. This is a great way to show your support for their passion and give them an unforgettable experience. For instance, tickets to see their favorite football, basketball, or hockey team play live would be the perfect gift.

Apart from buying tickets as gifts for sports fans, you could also get them some fan gear, like a jersey or cap from their team. This way, they can show their support for their team even when they're not at the game. Sports fans will appreciate anything that helps them feel closer to their favorite team, so tickets to a game—just like the latest sports card collections for their favorite sport—would make a great gift.

4. Sports Card Supplies

If you know an avid sports card collector and are shopping on a budget, a great idea it to get them some supplies to protect their prized collection. Giant Sports Cards offers a wide variety of top loaders and magnetic one touch holders, amongst other supplies. These holders can be used to protect and display the cards and come in various sizes to accommodate any collection. These are practical gifts for baseball card collectors or any other sports card collector.

Top loaders and holders can be found at most sporting goods stores or online retailers that sell sports memorabilia. Prices vary depending on the brand and quality, but you can find top loaders and holders for under $10. 

5. Gift Cards for Sports Cards Collectors 

Gift cards give your sports card enthusiast the ability to shop for whatever they want to build their collection. With gift cards, they can determine their own budget and shop to find the perfect item. 

They'll also be able to take advantage of current sales and promotions across their favorite shopping stores. So, if you're looking for a gift that's both practical and thoughtful, pick up a gift card—it can be anything from $50 to $1000+.
