The biggest event in soccer is well underway. The 2022 FIFA World Cup features the best athletes in the world duking it out for their respective nations. We’ve seen the excitement for the 2022 World Cup already impact The Hobby, as many collectors are investing in soccer’s premier stars.
It’s evident that the stars are out in Qatar. And while it's still uncertain who will hoist the trophy, there’s no shortage of skill out on the pitch this year.
Now is a great opportunity to pick up some trading cards featuring World Cup superstars to add to your collection, and eBay—the original marketplace for collectibles—has the most unique, rare and hard-to-find inventory out there. With more than two decades of expertise, it’s no doubt that eBay has the cred to deliver a full suite of physical and digital capabilities at scale. From Authenticity Guarantee to Price Guide, Collection, the eBay vault and more, eBay is the ultimate destination for trading card collectors and enthusiasts alike.
The eBay vault—a 24/7 secure facility and digital marketplace for trading card collectors with no sales tax, storage or selling fees—is the premier service in card security. Card collectors, investors and hobbyists are using the eBay vault to securely buy, sell, trade, store and invest in trading cards more seamlessly than ever before. The eBay vault enters the market as enthusiasts are increasingly investing differently and looking at collectible items—like World Cup superstar cards—as alternative assets. Single, graded trading cards and graded, autograph, relic, and patch cards purchased for $250+ on eBay in the US are now eligible for the eBay vault.
As soccer’s biggest stage continues, it’s only fitting that we showcase some potential international superstar cards to add to your collection in the eBay vault. Keep in mind that while this year's World Cup will soon crown a champion, the 2026 World Cup will be played in North America and will be here before you know it.
