I would like to pick some of you hillbilly retards brains if I may. I'm looking to start collecting baseball cards again. Not just any. I'll only be looking for Topps cards and only New York Mets cards from 1962 until the present. I'll only be looking for cards rated PSA 7 or higher. Now I know the bottom REALLY fell out of the sports card market years ago. I'll be doing this mostly for fun. Quite frankly, it sounds like I would probably be dead before I would be able to complete it due to disposable income at any one time and such. Is this something that is worth the time, effort, and expense? Or are these things literally not worth the paper they're printed on. It can get somewhat pricey. For example, I'm researching 1962 cards now. A PSA 7 Richie Ashburn can be had for $75. Seventy five bucks can buy a lot of oxycontin or a tranny hooker between the age of 35-40. Is anyone on here still in the card game and if so tell me all your dirty little secrets.

The card market is completely dead and collecting newer ones is no fun because of howmass-produced they are. You should put all your money into a few hard-to-find cards instead of overpaying for a lot of crap.

I had complete sets of Topps from 1984-1994 or so (I can’t even remember anymore) and complete sets of Score from the first 4 years that they made cards. I sold almost all of them for peanuts shortly after I moved to save space. I was never going to look at them again and they were never going to go up in value.

Well that's the thing, if I was looking into it as a half assed investment I would go for those few quality cards that you suggest. However, this would be more of a fun project seeing if I could get every card from every Met over the course of their history. Yes, I know it will stop dead at the 1966 Seaver and the 1967 Ryan but I can dream.

Well at least your post got the attention of Rossi the head hillbilly retard right off.

Maybe instead of worrying about graded cards if the goal is to get one card of each and every Met,  Get commons of as many p,Ayers as you can and for the more expensive cards like those you mentioned if you need those cards specifically hit Rossi up for a loan. He's loaded.

I still collect cards, but just boxing cards. It's much easier when there's less than 20 sets in total ever to collect. I pick up a few each year, mostly Topps cards from the 1951 set to try and complete it. Like you I"m not looking at it as an investment.

Yes, I know it will stop dead at the 1966 Seaver and the 1967 Ryan but I can dream.I think the Seaver rookie card is actually 67 where he was sharing the card with some homo that never amounted to anything.
PSA 7 value is maybe around $1000 but you'll pay more of course.
rossi is right of course cards overall have very little value because they are so mass produced.
I actually haven't looked at anything I have in a coon's age but the first year I started collecting baseball, hockey and CFL cards would have been 68 up to about 77 when I discovered girls had gits and a cunt.
Briefly got back into it in the mid to late 80's but wasn't buying much of anything really. Bought the Conlon sets because I knew I'd never get actual cards of those players and thrn did mostly specialty cards like goaltenders, QB's and Montreal Expos.
Sold some off years ago which paid for a few things and have full sets of Topps and OpeeChee hockey from the years mentioned but not yet ready to get rid of everything.
Same with my comics. Haven't bought anything in quite a few years and stopped doing a weekly run to look for issues to fill holes when I moved out into the country.

It never really was an investment for me either but I likely bought more cards as a kid than I ever would have if mother didn't disapprove so strenuously. That made collecting more fun since my grandmother told her to piss off since I was spending my own money that I had earned and cards were relatively cheap back then.Had a friend who collected as well back then but he did stupid things like cards between the spokes of your bike ( I never did that) and as far as the Seaver rookie card with the other homo o  it he'd cut those cards in half so each player had "their own card" .
I ended up with most of his cards as I'd tell him his cards were obsolete whrn the next year came out, lol.
Kinda sad I didn't keep all the hot wheels I had growing up. An uncle was getting me one a month back then for awhile. Those ended up being given to a friends kid.

You're right AA, I was off by a year on Seaver and Ryan being '67 and '68 respectively. I know that I could save quite a bit not worrying about grading and just picking up the commons. However, it's just a thing in me that whatever I get into I like to get the higher end ones. The shiny balloon holds my attention longer.

That's the Topps set from 1951....It's the most sought after set because of the design.  Back in the 1920's and 30 they were called Cigarette cards, because they would place them in Cigarette packs. One of the sets I have is the Churchman  



Other Cigarette cards from back then were Ogden, Mecca and Hassan










The most valuable card I have is the Rocky Graziano from the 1948 Leaf Set..The set itself isn't as visibly impressive as the others. But Graziano never gave permission for his image to be printed on the cards, and they had to do a recall of the sets, so there is a very limited known supply of these cards in existence...last I heard only about 20 known 





There were some lower end sets in the 80's and 1990's...>Browns boxing cards, Kayo, and All World...but they were mass produced...

Pretty sure it's Topps Ringside I think they called them. 1951.
Damn cool card would have been something to get into those.
