Cal Ripken - 2001 Fleer 'Material Issue' GAME-USED JERSEY (Orioles)
Best selection vintage baseball,football and basketball cards.
1993 Topps Inaugural RockiesIn 1993 Topps produced a limited number of special gold foil enhanced factory sets to honor the first season of the Colorado Rockies. A special gold foil Rockies logo was added to all the cards.
With an initial print run of 5,000, the Rockies had another 5,000 sets made for
a total of only 10,000 total factory sets. Since cards were only available as
factory sets which most collectors kept complete. and no packs were sold
making singles and team sets quite a bit tougher to find.

The T-206 Honus Wagner tobacco card has sold for upto $2.8 million in
auction. Called the "Holy Grail of Sports Cards", to me it's extreme-high
auction value can mostly be attributed to great PR and "auction fever".
It's not close to being the rarest baseball card and Honus Wagner is not
Babe Ruth or Mickey Mantle. Yes, the T-206 set is beautiful &
special but because of it's size and scarcities, not many collector's ever
try to complete, which should keep auction competition way down compared
to say 1933 Goudey or 1952 Topps baseball card issues.
There's a story Wagner banned his card because he was anti-tobacco but there are other stories about financial considerations.
You likkely have heard of PSA and may even know that this card was the FIRST they ever graded. But did you know dealer (B.l. .ast.o) admitted tampering with the card, perhaps trimming it down to size, before PSA graded it so highly for the auction.
