The peak years of my card collecting when cards were simply cardboard

The peak years of my card collecting when cards were simply cardboard

This is humbling. All these 1989 sets for only $24 total.

1989 and 1990 were the peak years of my brother and I collecting baseball cards. The years when all the card companies over-produced a ton of cards so they are worth nothing now. But that’s fine with me. I’m glad that the cards are readily available. Collecting cards is fun. It should be affordable.

Now the question is to purchase this collection or not. That’s a lot of card to store! 🙂

  1. I love the simple utility of the box design for Fleer and Donruss. One color. Simple screen printing. Nothing over-the-top. It’s honest and pure design. Compare those designs to the 1989 Score Rookie and Traded box. That design is just bla and boring.

    1. The funny thing is that those pure and honest designs would be considered hip and cool today.

      It’s also funny how the 1989 Fleer and Donruss boxes would exercise such restraint in their box design considering their card designs that year.
