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

    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.

    i'm not sure how to post pictures, if i was, it would be no problem, and i'd like to, but idk how []</P>


    the rookie cards are even gimmicky, as only thelimited print/numbered rookie cards are worth the real loot, and the only way you really make out on those is if you get one from a pack you opened yourself, because if you buy the cardindividually after someone else got it out of a pack, they're gonna want the $$$ that it's listed for. Some of the rookie cards are outrageous too, player hasn't played a down, yet his rookie card that is numbered to 250 is worth $100+ right from the pack......say you spend the $100 or even get a dealand pick it up for $70, unless the player is the next peyton manning, that card will either lose value or level out at around what you paid for it. if you crack cases/boxes to try to find these cards yourself, that is also very costly. the main way to make money on cards is to luck out and get some nice cards in your packs or you buy someone elses cards when they are down on thier luck aka selling cheap. theres also the occasional person who has no idea what they have, but those people are a dying breed, lol.</P>


    it would be nice to get back into picking up a complete set each year, the problem is the different sets have a few different players, so you'd have to pick up multiple sets and/or team sets to get all the players. do you remember the billy ripken '**** face,' card? i don't have any of those, but i do have a handful of baseball cards laying around somewhere. i most like to collect walter payton, and insert sets........ooooh, shiney, lol.

    without the swatch, they go for as little as $50 or as much as: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2008-Pete-Ro...67242994042476</P>


    i doubt the card will sell for that $499 in this market. i personally place no value whatsoever on autographs that are placed on stickers and then the stickers are placed on the cards. the player gets mailed a sheet(s) they sign all the little stickers and send it back, i would imagine that an authenticator/agent may be present when they're being autographed.</P>
