The price guide has information on cards from 1867 to the present day. It includes cards from a variety of brands and manufacturers, including those that are no longer in business. It has cards for players in professional leagues, colleges, foreign leagues, Team USA and other teams or leagues. Each card page includes the player name, set, year and card number. It also includes detailed pricing information and links to the item in the Beckett Marketplace, when available.
