    The value of that stuff is ASTRONOMICAL. It's just so rare. Here is an example of what I mean:

    I think the retail on that unopened box is something like $44,000. Maybe higher.
    Are you saying unopened box of 89 UD BB is valued at 44,000.00?

    I had a collectible hobby store back for about 15 years in late 80's through the eary 2000's. Was quite active trading and selling on ebay at that time as well. Used to do hobby shows all over the southeast. Have 2 storage units 10x10 packed full of cards...Not much of a market for stuff back in those years.

    No, the link was supposed to go to 1986 fleer basketball w/ the Jordan rookie. Those do approach $1500 per pack, I think.

    1989 Upper Deck foil is closer to $10 per pack, I think. $360 per box.

    I can give u one hint on grading the '89 UD cards. Of course, centering + sharp corners are important. Specific to the '89UD, check out the diamond HOLOGRAM and see if THAT is centered. The hologram probably needs to be centered to fetch a PSA 10 grade.
    PSA 9 on ebay now for 500.00.

    One thing about ebay. You will find SOME sellers that are just trying to rip u off.

    That said, I think that UD Griffey has been rising in price. People love that card.

    Anyone watch Phil Hughes YouTube channel? I’m Not a collector anymore but he opens the highest end product, cases of high end stuff at a time. He also shows the Process of how he signs cards and how much he gets per card. Very interesting stuff

    Yes, Robbie Alomar made the HOF. Not sure he's gay, he dated tennis player Mary Pierce.

    Sadly, 1988 Donruss was a shitty set. Right when the over-production kicked in. There's also a Tom Glavine rookie in that set that's not worth much.

    The '88 Robbie Alomar looks like it sells for $1 or so, not much more. If u somehow find a perfect one that grades PSA 10, $80:

    I've reviewed some prices. Indeed, I'm out of date on current prices.

    Professional grading was a game-changer. So hard to estimate value of raw cards. The stair-step to a higher grade is often 3x and sometimes much more than that.
