Here are some hobby resources we recommend and use on a frequent basis.

PSACard.com: Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) is the world’s largest third-party sports card authentication service (buy also the longest waiting time).
Beckett.com/Grading: Sportscard AUTHENTICATION & COMIC GRADING SERVICES (shorter waiting times vs PSACards but PSA 10 grades are worth more than BGS 9.5).
GoldCardAuctions.com/best-sports-cards-to-buy: This is our go-to blog for checking out the best cards to buy for investment purposes and all things related to sports card investing… these guys are honest and provide great investment advice (we have followed their recommendation many times and how we got started investing in baseball cards).
