The problem is in those times, card companies made FAR too many of them. There are too many out there which greatly diminishes their value. I have all these guys as well...Clemens rookie - $20 ...Mcgwire...about the same, Canseco...basically nothing. Bonds was the highest, but last I remember you could pick one up for around 50 bucks. Sad. The obvious steroid scandal hurt them too. Combine the two and there's you value in the shitter.

No. Reason: Until Pete Rose gets into the HOF, I don't think any of them should be. Yes Rose bet on baseball but he bet as a manager. I have no problem at all with him being banned from the game. But he's the All Time Hits leader, as a player he had a hall of fame career. To me what Palmiero, Mcgwire, Bonds & Sosa done was much worse, then keeping Rose out for something he done as a manager and not a player.

ECHOING!!!!


I still have my cards and what good will they ever do me.. I had a nolan ryan rookie, well it was a nolan ryan/ Jerry koosman card ... and it was worth 1600 when i first got it.... Last i looked some 5 or 6 years ago it was down to 400 and probably worse even now... I had the Ken Griffey Jr. Rookie Upper Deck Card.. 160 back in the day.. maybe 20 bucks now...

Emmitt smith rookie, Troy Aikman rookie, Deion Sanders rookie... Shawn Kemp Rookie... Sheez.. All those cards... Not worth anything.. If when I got them, I sold them i would have been better off... Frustrating...

Wish it would comeback though.. Totally enjoyed collecting.. now I just see it as a rip off..

Yeah, I have quite a few of his too. He and Greg Jefferies were to 2 big "rated rookies" that year......Jefferies bombed. Why did Griffey's drop so much?

I'd just buy all my cards from a convenience store 2 blocks away from home named "Vito's" and yes, he was an Italian - most of my neighborhood was (I lived in downtown Toronto, east side). I even met a "godfather" once when I was in a pool hall and witnessed the kissing of his ring. That was interesting.....
