Getting Washington Senators Baseball Memorabilia

By: Joseph Baylon

Are you a fan of the Washington Senators? Do you love watching your favorite team score its home runs and blast through the innings with all the points they need to win? Then you will surely salivate for the best Washington Senators baseball memorabilia, which are great when bought as is - and even more precious when signed by your favorite players.

There are many sites on the World Wide Web that offer Washington Senators baseball memorabilia. Some sites will offer forums and services in which Washington Senators fans can discuss plays, arrange meetings, and even trade goods both autographed and unsigned. Other sites will offer auction services, where Washington Senators fans can bid on their favorite items, and where prices can range from almost absurdly low for brand new merchandise, and extremely, unbelievably high for signed merchandise of Washington Senators baseball legends. Still other sites will offer buying and selling services, where the most desperate fans can still get a whiff of the Washington Senators.

If you are looking for Washington Senators baseball memorabilia, you can inquire at your local collector's shops, or you can surf the Internet for the sites mentioned above. Be careful, however: many trading, selling, and buying sites are filled with predators that can steal your personal information. Do not give away your credit card number to anyone, and trust such numbers only to sites that are secure.

Here are a few categories of baseball memorabilia that you can buy online, whether with the Washington Senators logo, a Washington Senators player's signature, or nothing at all. Although this list is incomplete, it should give you a fairly good idea of what you can get online if you know where to look and what price to expect.

- Signed baseballs, gloves, bats are perhaps the most precious materials to any serious collector of baseball memorabilia. If you have such materials from the Washington Senators, keep them in glass cases away from heat, moisture, and direct sunlight. These can damage your baseball memorabilia, or can cause the ink used for autographs to fade.

- Washington Senators jerseys and jackets are also popular in online merchant, auction, and trading sites. If you are able to avail of such materials, and unsigned, keep them in a good condition by following washing instructions. Keep them in boxes away from insects that can chew through the fabric. If you are able to buy signed jerseys or jackets of Washington Senators players, keep these away from moisture by framing them and hanging them up for display.

- Umpire helmets, and baseball helmets, in general, are relatively strong and sturdy, and do not need to be placed in glass cases. However, if your Washington Senators helmet is signed by your favorite player, you may need to display it in a glass case to keep the autograph ink from fading.

- Also popular amongst Washington Senators fans are autographed posters, books, and photographs of their favorite Washington Senators players. As a rule, the more team members in a photograph or poster, the more expensive it can be; and the more team members who have autographed the photograph or poster of the team, the more precious it is. If you have such photographs or posters, keep them away from moisture or direct sunlight, whether or not they have been photographed. If you have autographs on them, keep them sealed in glass frames and hang them in a part of your house or building that is dry and moderately lighted.

If you have books signed by Washington Senators players, you can wrap them in protective plastic and store them in either cardboard boxes or glass cases. If you have books about the team, then you need to do as any serious collector would: buy two copies of the book, and leave one unopened as an heirloom to the next generation of Washington Senators fans.
