Nice headline.

I heard about this. Vintage base ball is one of my hobbies. But not rich at all.

Also, well done subby.

What about authentic 1880 granola bars?

He wishes it were worth 100K. These things are available on Amazon for a penny.

Now, a card featuring an amateur club from 1865, the Brooklyn Atlantic, is a prize, mainly because teams from that era didn't have cards in the style we know them today, they just produced photographs of the team which they had (probably for players and fans or "cranks").

Probably won't sell as much as Honus Wagner's card, but still a really cool piece of baseball history.

It's called a "joke". Subby was mocking Jamie Moyer's age, he was not being serious about Moyer's rookie card being worth some obscene amount.

\Not Subby.

I was aware of the joke. I was just interested to see the value of Jamie Moyer's card.

In fact, please see my original post to this thread where I praise subby's joke.

I've been meaning to start selling my box o' baseball cards individually on ebay. The only one I know may have value is an Eric Davis rookie card

Take a careful look at prices these days. The Upper Deck Era (1989-onward) has seen a pretty severe collectibles bubble (and it burst about 2000).

Nobody remembered that the reason the old cards were so valuable was the low production combined with tons of cards being lost or thrown out when kids got older. The Ken Griffey, Jr. 1989 UD rookie is the poster child. It was theoretically worth upwards of $200 at bubble peak. Now it's worth something like $20.

And if your big items aren't PSA-graded, it's almost impossible to get market value for them.

/Bought a 1984 Topps John Elway in 1990 for $12. It was worth $150 at peak, now it's worth ~$30.

Got $10?  Want 25 more?

/1980 is kind of the cut-off point for baseball cards and comic books, anything after that (with rare exception) is basically worthless

Yep. Card companies mass produced cards after 1980 or so, and the fact the older ones were worth money resulted in people saving and protecting all their cards. The result? Lots and lots of 1980 and beyond cards worth diddly. With rare exceptions, of course. Such as some "update" rookie cards (released in the late season, which resulted in fewer being sold and printed) in the early 80s are worth a decent amount since they were produced in less numbers and you could only buy the complete set.

There are a few very rare cards from the late 90s and beyond worth a lot (such as autograph rookie cards that had about 5 of each produced total), but in general, they are worth diddly.

Former card collector. I have about 6 plastic tubs somewhere at my parent's house. Total value is probably $2000, and that is only because I have a few rarer older cards that were graded and a few very rare 90s insert cards

I remember having a couple of these when I was a kid. I put them in the spokes of my bicycle, to make it sound like a motorcycle.

Hell, I have a bunch of 'em that I bought recently...even repackaged and sold at what I know is well above the going rate for the cards individually, I get 80 or so cards in decent shape for the grand total of 3 bucks at the local Target.

/I like to occasionally get a pack of 'em to reminisce of old days
//also, because holy sh*t some of those designs are hilariously awful
///plus I got a bunch of sheet sleeves, filled 'em with cards, and used them as cheap decorations in our apartment since we can't put holes in some walls and we can't paint the walls unless we want to re-paint them when we move out soon

Oh wow, '87 Topps. I have that complete set somewhere. For me, that's what a baseball card will always look like.

Year of the Hawk, too.

The ironic part of the 'rarity' is because Honus was merely American Tobacco for moolah, he licensed his name & likeness to a cigar co. not too long before...

Went to a collectibles convention the other day, saw a dealer selling a complete 1989 Upper Deck set for $44. Last time I checked they were worth about $200.

Saw a bunch of Mantle cards for sale for $50-60. When I was collectiong, those were an easy 3 figures.

Were these Mantle cards from the 50s or 60s?

60's I guess....it's been a while, I don't really recognize cards like I used to.
