Randy Johnson rookie (mint)

Jeff Bagwell rookie

Deion Sanders football rookie (mint)


Plus: a 1984 Astros autographed ball

and a Nolan Ryan autographed ball


and yes, there have been plenty of garage sale snafoos by mommy, including a Biggio rookie and a Reggie Jackson autographed bat that I got at an all-star game in Arlington in the early 90s. She sold it to some little kid that probably played baseball with it. Makes me sick to this day.

'too many to mention & "value" has nothing to do with $$$ in my book (of cards)


BTW -- are there any Card Shops still open in the Tyler area ??


There used to be 2 or 3 -- now I have to go to Ground Zero or the Evil Empire (Wal*Mart) to get my 9-pocket sheets.

‘was not directed toward any of the posts that preceded me -- I ALWAYS make that point because 95% of collectors I run into do it more for the $$$ and less for the passion ;)

In no particular order........

Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Ryan Sandberg rookie, Roger Maris 61 season, autographed Cal Ripken Jr., Gil Hodges, Johnny Bench, Ken Griffey Jr. rookie, ...............that's all I can think of off the top of my head.


Of course, I have the entire '89 Cubs team that one the NL East.
