Worst set of cards ever. Goddamned Dale Murphy Diamond King. BEckett Baseball Card Monthly back in 88 it was worth 50 cent.

1988 DONRUSS baseball cards

Worst set of cards ever

One of the worst anyway. The 1983 Donruss were pretty stupid. Dear friend Jayson Brown bought a case (16 boxes of wax packs) at a garage sale for $20 once. Just to build a set & for kicks, I wound up obtaining & opening 4 boxes. Has to be one of the least pleasurable experiences I've ever had opening packs of any cards. Besides that, the stats aren't so great, the are often centered badly & with cut flaws, the photography's bad, the design's stupid, & well, you know...

Really? There's some neat stuff in that set (Bonds rookie, early Maddux, Larkin rookie, early Palmiero, etc...), but it's not a very popular set regarding it's design.

Yeah, but people remember that year! Not long after that was when Upper Deck started pimping their shit for $1.25 per pack, seemed like a fortune back then...Only time I could buy those was when I'd rip off money from my dad!

A dear buddy of mine has plenty 'o' cards. Seriously though he won't allow me to beat off on his bb cards...

I'll sell my 1989 Topps "Manager" and "Checklist" cards to the highest bidder!

1988 Donruss complete set 7.00 - 9.00 dollars

1987 Topps complete set 20.00 - 45.00 dollars

i got the 1987 topps set with the wood grain frame from my parents as a present for babysitting my sister all that summer. i think they paid 20 bucks for it back then, which, if you are selling it for forty now you're still not that far ahead. but i'll never get rid of them for that reason, they were a gift from them. i quit collecting baseball and football cards soon after that because i could buy a pack of smokes for less than two packs of baseball cards and i knew exactly what i was getting in the pack of smokes.

Seriously, it's all about the circle cards that came in the bottom of King B Beef Jerky Stuff. They didn't have the MLBPA or NFLPA approval so they had to airbrush the logos on the hats. Same with Tombstone pizza cards, 7 Up cards, cards from cops which were a fucking scam cause you actually had to talk to a cop to get one. Some departments actually made cards with cops on them...I have some that have pigs with milk moustasches.

1989 Upper Deck was a nice series anyway.

88 donruss was great. that was right before baseball cards got all slick and glossy and expensive.

it's hilarious how worthless baseball cards are. when I collected them I honestly thought they'd be worth something by now, that was stupid of me.

i knew a kid who would autograph his baseball cards and try to sell them to everybody. rick floyd. i can't believe i even remembered that shit.

Damn, I *KNOW*. When I was a teen I thought I'd struck a GOLDMINE with those Upper Deck cards and their enticeing holograms....whole shoebox of shit collecting dust in my closet....

I used to collect the hell out of baseball cards( Topps) but got out of it in my very early teens. I have about a shoebox worth of selected cards left and thats it. I'm not even sure what happened to all the full sets I had. My sister recently called and said she had some cards I gave my nephew a while ago and asked if I wanted them back. Two Daryl Strawberry rookie cards, Pete Rose rookie card and a few others. I'm sure I'll just stick them in the attic when I get them.

By the way, saw the Indians and the Cardinals play last night. Was a great game with the Cardinals winning, 5-1. Pujols hit a home run and the place went nuts.

What sucks more is that if you want to even try to sell them you have to get them graded by some professional grading place.

Yeah, I got that 87 Topps set too.. At least it's got rookie for Mark McGuire and Matt Nokes

I've got a nifty '88 Fleer set as well, what's that worth?

i believe Bonds rookie was in the 86 updates set. or whatever topps called their traded/updates set.

i love the look of the 87 topps set with the woodgrain. i have that set. most of the 'rated rookies' (actually i think that's a donruss term but whatever topps did with the little gold cup on some of their similar themed guys) turned out the nobodies

good luck with that one. you'd probably make more money recycling your old cards.
