1993 topps baseball question

looks the jeter gold is the one to have, but the rockies and marlins inaugurals are limited to 10,000. when i looked up the psast three months of sales for the jeter, the rockies version is 1, gold 2 and marlins 3. so is simply about pop, rockies are the best, gold is the best or marlins is the best.

edmonds griffey thomas kent ryan johnson are all the others i like too.

any thoughts would be appreciated,

    I was also on the fence a few years back about which one to pick up myself. It came down to the Rockies or the regular gold. In the end, I chose to go with the regular gold. If Jeter would have been on either of those two inaugural teams when he was drafted, that would have been a no brainer for me, but he wasn't. Overall, I just preferred to have the base gold.

    @olb31 the Marlins is actually a print run of 6,000. I haven’t looked at the pop report, but if the Marlins is 3rd in value, it must be a sleeper. Of the 3 though, I would think the gold commands the most interest.

    according to baseballcardpedia, 10,000 sets were probably produced and mos were sold at the rockies and marlins team stores within the stadium.

    I would think the base gold would be the most desirable.

    George Brett, Bobby Orr and Terry Bradshaw.

    for jeter it looks like the rockies and the gold are far superior.

    psa 10 pop

    regular 3365 out of 44,000
    gold 421 out of 9300
    marlins 167 out of 950
    rockies 69 out of 680

    Curious if Jeter's 4.5 years as Marlins CEO spiked any interest in the Marlins Inagural.

    doesn't look like it.

    I think you’re confusing pop numbers and hobby appeal, like you often do. There’s no doubt the Rockies pop numbers are appealing. But I still think most collectors would rather have the base gold.

    Yaz Master Set
    #1 Gino Cappelletti master set
    #1 John Hannah master set

    Also collecting Andre Tippett, Patriots Greats' RCs, 1964 Venezuelan Topps, 1974 Topps Red Sox, 1968 Venz Sox

    The highest sale on EBAY is the Rockies card. Not my opinion.

    But going by the pop report we kind of figure out the total pop of each card (at least an honest guess).

    Marlins and Rockies (around 10,000).
    Gold appears to be 10x higher or so between 80k - 100k
    Regular appears to be around 500,000
