    Thanks! I started collecting in 1979, that's the first card I ever remember really wanting and making a trade for. I love his rookie, but my favorite Staubach card is definitely the 79.

    @brian48 AWESOME Brady Rookies!! A Championship Ticket in PSA 8 is a BEAST OF A CARD....SWEET!!! Consecutive Cert #'s on the pair to boot - You the Man!!! Congratz!!

  • Most expensive - Michael Jordan 1986 Fleer
    Favorite - 1991 Topps Archives 1953 Mickey Mantle. It was my "good luck" card on tests through high school, college, and graduate school. Always had it in my pocket (in a case, of course)

  • ahopkinsahopkins ✭✭✭✭ Posts: 875 ✭✭✭✭

    Love the rough cut on that '73 OPC Garvey.

    Some great cards.
    Here is my favorite card in my collection.

    I chose this for my most expensive.

    I've never been particularly fond of most post-1986 cards, but I'll make an exception for yours. Those are GORRRR-JIST!

    Thanks! When I saw it come up, it screamed solid 9 at a great price. I could not hit buy fast enough! Tough to find these centered.

    These are two of my most expensive cards.

    This is probably my favorite.

    Most expensive (I think...?)

    Co-favorites (I was this guys’ high school coach. Awesome kid. He loves to laugh at me for spending money on his autograph these days when he’d of course be happy to sign anything I want. Doesn’t quite get the “certified auto” concept I guess. Really hoping he gets “the call” this year!)

    Always looking for tougher PSA 10's of Nolan Arenado, Alex Bregman, Mookie Betts, Francisco Lindor, and Mike Trout.

  • markj111markj111 ✭✭✭ Posts: 2,859 ✭✭✭

    My favorite card is my 61 Killebrew PSA 8. It’s the first card I bought raw on eBay that graded as an 8. Most valuable is either Rose rookie, or 59 Mantle. Both PSA 8.

  • olb31olb31 ✭✭✭ Posts: 1,312 ✭✭✭

    I have a 1982 topps Shooty Babbitt rookie graded psa 9 as most valuable. My favorite card is the 1964 Pete Rose.

    Work hard and you will succeed!!

    Most expensive, the one on the left.

    Favorite? Probably this one. It's a PSA 10 actually.

    Wow
    Can you get that championship version in a BGS 9 holder?

  • Brian48Brian48 ✭✭✭ Posts: 2,593 ✭✭✭

    Actually, I've been thinking of submitting it for review for a possible half point bump, but it's really expensive now. I was convinced this card was a 9 when I submitted it, but was disappointed when it came back as an 8. My submission was just one month prior to PSA implementing their new half point grading scale. Note, the regular Contender was submitted at the same time. Comparing the two, the Championship Tix is noticeably nicer by a lot.

  • krisd3279krisd3279 ✭✭✭ Posts: 702 ✭✭✭

    I'm still not sure which is my favorite or which is most valuable, but I think these two are pretty cool. It's hard to put a price on the 1 of 1.

    Timing is everything! I would most definitely get that reviewed. Amazing card. Congratulations on owning it. I’m fascinated by the prices of our modern day sports GOAT’s!

    Ive just started collecting in September of last year so i don't have a ton of inventory to choose from. My most valuable card in almost certainly the most boring card posted in this thread. Its a PSA 8 1957 Topps Bazooka seried 1/2 checklist.
    Its a Pop 20 with only 1 graded higher (Pop 9).

    I can't post a picture of my favorite card because its on a 4+ month vacation in Newport Beach but its a 1948 Leaf Slinging Sammy Baugh. If i remember this thread in the summer when it returns home ill come back and post a pic of it.

    @Bishtw I see a really nice Hi-grade unmarked checklist
    from a difficult year. All early checklists that are unmarked
    are true treasures. I don't see the boring card, you may need
    to re-post it. :) :) :)

  • KendallCatKendallCat ✭✭✭✭✭ Posts: 2,379 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Most valuable now is probably my 15 CJ Cobb below, and funny thing is the other day i said something to my wife about selling it because i have had 3-4 REALLY good offers on it. She said why sell it - that is such a sweet card. Not many wives say that.

    I would say it right now it is favorite 1A along with these two at 1B and 1C. Mainly because they are popular cards and what I paid for them versus what it would cost me to find an 8/8.5 to replace the eye appeal would be $$$. Have thought about getting a Ryan 8/8.5 but can’t justify it when the below example looks like an 8/8.5 with no flaws.



  • Stone193Stone193 ✭✭✭✭✭ Posts: 23,916 ✭✭✭✭✭

    She said why sell it - that is such a sweet card. Not many wives say that.

    So true Keith.

    Talked with your wife at the National and she had very flattering things to say about the joy collecting gave you - overall impression emoted? Total support in what you were doing. And yes, rare.

    My wife? Supportive but thinks I'm nuts!

  • KendallCatKendallCat ✭✭✭✭✭ Posts: 2,379 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Thanks for the note Mike. She enjoys collecting with us, and will crack open modern stuff with us at home. She has been to about 7-8 Nationals with me along with Jr - she might have to miss Chicago this year and ruin her streak. We are already booked for the Doubletree and plenty of Gibson’s and cookies. 😄

    Appreciate the love fella's. I've just started collecting in Aug of last year and that checklist was one of the 15 cards I submitted using the 15 free vouchers you get with the membership. I was a pleasantly surprised when i got that one back.

    My best card... psa 3 nq

    My favorite ones... I’d like to start a Jim Abbott registry set but he’s not on the list of players.

    Kendallcat that CJ Cobb is beautiful... probably a 20k card.

  • rdeffleyrdeffley ✭✭ Posts: 72 ✭✭


    This qualifies as my most valuable and favorite. 71 PSA9 Nolan Ryan. Out of all the PSA9's I've seen for this card, this is the nicest one I've ever laid eyes on.

    For the 71 Topps, there are no 10's and only 31 9's. So less than 1% of submissions.

    Some good stuff in this thread. Nothing in the real high rent district, Alworth & Rickey rookie. and Alworth is my overall favorite.

  • AFLfanAFLfan mod Posts: 351 mod

    Nice Alworth rookie. Centering is such a tough issue for that card (and set). I'm a Alworth huge fan, though I mostly collect autographed cards.

    Man..centering on the Rickey is FANTASTIC all around. Have you thought about resubbing for a minimum 10 grade review?

    What's the back look like?

    As someone who is obsessive about master set the two 52 Mantles were a major problem

    but my favorites are


    Topps Baseball-1948, 1951 to 2017
    Bowman Baseball -1948-1955
    Fleer Baseball-1923, 1959-2007
