Pppffftt. Michael Jordan rookie card. I got a box of 1988 Michael Jordan Valentines, and the plastic is still on them.

Other Jordan rookie cards not quite perfect but still in mint condition could command thousands of dollars.

Wut?

Just be careful with a Babe Ruth autographed ball in a sandlot.

I've got a Shaq rookie card that's worth like $4, so there.

In most card grading companies, there is mint and gem-mint. Gem-mint is literally flawless. Mint is pretty much flawless with 1 incredibly minor flaw that basically required expert analysis to find (i.e. centering may be a tiny bit off).

Thank you for that.  I was scratching my head after reading that in the article.

Did that card really tie the room together?
 
2013-01-22 12:39:10 PM  
But they don't know what card it is. So it must be the valuable one.

No, it really doesn't. It's a great movie that doesn't need to be ruined by turning it into a shiatty franchise.

I disagree. A sequel or two following the same basic plotlines, but with more Shia Lebeouf would be a great thing.

The Coen Bros don't do sequels, they just write a new movie. Which, unfortunately, is a rare thing today among feature films.

Sports cards are a bunch of BS.

I have a ton of them from my childhood that are supposedly worth something, but GOOD LUCK finding someone who will actually farking buy them!

It's not like a collector is going to take a chance on something like that over EBay, and trying to sell them to a store will only result in some nerd finding microscopic flaws that he claims will reduce their value.

Most cards produced post-1980 (with a few exceptions, like the 1986-87 Fleer basketball cards which contain the Jordan and many other rookies) are not worth the cardboard they are printed on. Some of the early 80s rookies are worth a good amount of graded mint or gem-mint, but those are very rare for a reason.

And if you have a valuable card, get it graded. If you plan on buying one, buy one graded from a respectable company (PSA preferably, Beckett at the least). Lots of fake/doctored cards out there.

Like comics, after the early 1980s, the market was flooded with cards. pre-1980s cards are worth money because your mom threw them away or you used them to decorate the spokes on your sweet-ass '70s bike. I have some cards yet that date from the 1910s to the 70s, even battered they're still worth more than my 1986 Topps complete set. Only a few cards post-1980 are worth anything, mostly rookies of top stars. I could burn my entire '86 set and lose less than $10. Except my O-Pee-Chee Pete Rose Montreal Expos card. That's kinda fun to own, frankly.

I actually have a set of Battlefield Earth trading cards.

One of them is autographed by the film's star, Barry Pepper.

Wasn't part of the problem that they started selling complete sets? When I was a kid you just kept buying pack after pack hoping you got a Willie Stargell or a card of someone good. I probably threw away more gum than I have chewed over my life time buying those damn things.
