How rare is YOUR Memorabilia Card?
Futera COLOUR GRADING CHARTS help you understand how rare, and therefore how valuable your card could be. This service is free for all collectors.
Look for the CARD NUMBER on the back of your card. Number of Sets made
This means that only xxxx sets were made of this card type. Futera’s Set sizes tend to be kept rare. Futera individually number ALL of its Insert cards.
How to read the COLOUR GRADING CHART….
Look at the colours on your card. Generally, if the piece of jersey/memorabilia in your card
shows more than one colour, it is considered more rare, and therefore potentially more valuable if you want to sell or trade it.
Memorabilia taken from a jersey’s badge may have several colours - these are considered very rare indeed because not many cards would exist that could have been made from the small badge area.
Go to futera.com. Click on the COLOUR GRADING tab at the top of the Home Screen.
A list will show you which Futera Collections provide a ‘COLOUR GRADING CHART’.
Click on the Collection that your card is from. The example here is from the Futera World Football UNIQUE 2015 Collection.
The next screen will show you the TITLES of the Card Sets within the Collection. The Futera UNIQUE 2015 Collection has 10 different Memorabilia Sets to collect, with either 1, 2 or 3 pieces of memorabilia on the same card and includes game-worn jersey, Goalkeeper gloves, training kits, and match-used balls.
How rare is your card?
Each Bar shows how many cards exist which feature a piece of memorabilia of either 1 or more colours.
Interestingly, the cards with the most colours are not always the most rare, and the rarity of the card itself can attribute to its trading value, so this Chart could be helpful for you to understand your card’s potential trading value.
Of course, the more colours a card has does make it an attractive card, and if comparing cards of equal rarity, a multi-coloured card could be expected to trade for a higher value than a 1-colour card, but not necessarily.
What value a collector puts on a card is also a personal thing - e.g. the collector might simply prefer the No. 1xxxx player card to the No. xxxx player card.
You can then check on the COLOUR GRADING CHART how rare the colours are for each of the memorabilia pieces within the same card, as this can also affect how rare and potentially valuable your card could be.
For example, if there were many cards made which featured a 1-colour ‘red’ memorabilia piece, but only 1 card made with a 1-colour ‘black’ memorabilia piece, then the card featuring the1-colour ‘black’ memorabilia piece would be considered more rare, and therefore more potentially valuable than other cards having the same total colours.
