  • Baseball/Football card collectors? Share some of your great collections

    http://s1102.photobucket.com/albums/...otball%20Cards Some of my football cards.

    I'll have to go through more and actually label them. Right now, I'd have to say, so far my Pete Rose autographed, 5 of 10 with game worn jersey, is the most expensive card I have now.






    I'll also be taking pictures of all the comics I have (yes, I have Marvel trading cards too that are worth a lot, haha).

              My mother and her sister met a lot of the Yankees in the 60's when they'd go to games. They'd either talk to you at the game, or they'd run into them in the parking lot.

              Things were so laid back then, now you can't even watch the Yankees enter or exit the stadium anymore because of jack asses.

                    yaaaoo</P>


                    I haventcollected anything in YEARS...like probably 15 years....but I did get my hands on some awesome stuff as a kid.
                    (at work so i cant show pics rt now)

                    -I have a 69 Mickey Mantle
                    -I have the 89 UD Griffey Jr. RC which took me like 3 years to get by spending all my allowance on packs when the card shop found unopened boxes on ocassion. lol
                    -71 Topps Roberto Clemente
                    -(ppl laugh at this one) i have a PSA 9 1986 Fleer Spud Webb RC (same year as the Jordan RC). For some reason, it's actually worth some money lol
                    -I have an Autographed 95 UD Ken Griffey Jr. card!

                    Junior is my all time favorite baseball player

                    And despite it's lack of value, i have a binder full of only Michael Jordan cards, probably about 150 of them....and about 30 MJ cards that i considered "case worthy" at the time I got them cuz they were worth a bit more.
                    Of course now, half this stuff is worth garbage. But it kept me out of trouble as a kid as I had a hobby lol.</P>

                    It's too bad, I'm too good....

                        My dad has the All Star Rookie Thurmon Munson card. My grandfather had a Mickey Mantle [it MIGHT be a rookie] but we're not exactly sure who's in possession of that now.

                        Tons of the Dynasty 90's Yankees cards, namely the Topps Derek Jeter rookie card and some of the 80's/early 90's Giants, namely the Strahan/Marcus Buckley duo rookie card from 93' I believe.

                        Other non Giant/Yankees goodies--

                        Jeff Bagwell rookie
                        random Jordans
                        Malik Sealy
                        Frank Thomas rookie
                        two Ken Griffey Jr. rookies
                        Andruw Jones rookie lol at the time it was something
                        Reggie Jackson card but he's on the Angels in 84
                        83' Mike Schmidt card
                        golden All NFL Team Barry Sanders
                        Orel Hershisher on the Indians
                        Mark McGwire on the A's
                        Marshall Faulk rookie
                        Jerome Bettis rookie
                        Rey Ordonez rookie LOL remember when he was gonna be better than Jeter?
                        Juan Gonzales rookie [not the inverted one sadly]

                        and a ton more but those are the best I guess. never spent too much on my card hobby but i always liked collecting them as a kid.

                          nice cards. i like em all, but i don't place the same value on em. autographs are cool, but i won't pay for em. the jersey cards with the little pieces of cut up jersey are a such a waste of money imo. they take a game worn jersey that could sell for $400-$1000, they cut it up into a bunch of little pieces, put the little pieces in cards and then people are silly enough to pay $50+ a card and they help establish a ludicrous value. then take into account that they have some players wear multiple jerseys during the same game on purpose (especially during pro bowls,) just to say the jersey was 'game worn,' and then they ask ludicrous amounts of money for them.</P>


                          no kid or their parents for that matter can comfortably part with that much money. only the corporate types. takes the fun out out of it for me as a collector.</P>


                          that being said i have quite a few cards from 1998 to about 2002 or so. i am a huge walter payton fan and would love to have his autograph, but i haven't found one that i liked that much, and all the really good ones go for $150+. one day i may go for it, as i can see paying for his sig since he is no longer with us. i probably have about 300+ walter payton cards, and that is not exaggerating. i have 6 of those single column collector boxes filled with payton cards that are in the semi-thick protective cases.</P>


                          i also have a few of the philadelphia cards. bart starr, mike ditka, and 2 others. they look really cool, i appreciate that they were made before i was even a thought.</P>

                            hey that juan gonzalez card; are you talking about the red bordered donruss card that has him batting one way on the correct card, and the flipped image on the incorrect card? if so I have one of each that I would part with for a reasonable $$$. not a huge baseball fan, but its the only card that i have boththe correct &amp; incorrect versions of.</P>

                              Yeah, that's the one. It was folk lore of the highest degree back in the 90s when I was a kid. Dunno if it's still that highly valued. Afterall, I don't think he really took off like he was supposed to.

                              There was also a flipped Frank Thomas card that was rumored to be floating around.

                              Would love to see pic's if you can ever get one up of the Juan Gonzales, never did get to see one.

                              And I also agree with you about the autographed cards and such, I mean they're great but unless you got them autographed yourself I don't see the reason. And the jersey ones are neat too, but again, unless the player actually gives you that stuff -- why spend the money?

                              Rookie cards are where it's at with card collecting; and also having whole sets whether of a certain team or for example; the entire 1999 Upper Deck set.
