Baseball Cards

Who else got caught up in that crazy baseball card phase in the early 90s?

I was certain that rookie cards would overtake stocks as the most solid investment mechanism.

The following were the prizes of my collection:




I also was certain that Ben McDonald was going to be the next Bob Gibson.

What were other tribers prized cards?

My experience with cards reached its apex in Grade 7 when I bought a whole box of proset cards in the hopes of getting a Raghib Ismael card.

I have Jordan's rookie and second year card. Well I have a card to represent every year in the NBA.



The Scottie Pippen rookie with his name spelled wrong on one side (Pippin)

Cam Neely rookie card.

I have a ton of cards, but to get anthing for them in Toronto most dealers want them graded by a company like Becketts and I'm too lazy for that now.
