And do you have any idea how much it is?

I pulled all mine out last night and looked at them. I have a Michael Jordan error card that says he won his 2 dunk contests, but tells the wrong years. I have no idea how much it is worth.

Do you like the Cayman Islands?

I've probably got a few rookie NFL cards from the late 60s or early 70s floating around.

I've also got a couple of football cards from the 40s. Len Younce is one, and I can't remember the other.

I had a very, very tiny baseball card collection, but I distinctly remember a really cool holographic Willie Mays card from about 1970 or 1971. I have no idea if it's worth anything, but as a kid I thought it was way cool.

I once had Dale Carter's rookie card, I think it was worth 8 bucks in his 2nd year.

I think it's worthless, but I also found a Bo Jackson card, it says Bo Breaker, and it has a picture of him crackin the bat on his knee. Very cool.

I have a few Harvey Williams rookie cards. I'm glad I held on to them. :(

I have some Griffey Jr's that at one time would have been worth something but now I bet they aren't worth squat. I also have a Michael Jordon Upper Deck baseball card but I'm sure they aren't worth much either.

Until a few weeks ago I owned a 1915 (NOT 1914) Cracker Jack Shoeless Joe Jackson in really, really bad condition. I've started liquidating my eclectic baseball card collection, and this was the prize by far.

Currently, my best card is either a '57 Koufax, a '57 Ted Williams, or one of my old T206s. I sent off pre-war cards to PSA for grading, but the results, as usual, were disappointing. Oh well.

Topps Jerry Rice Rookie card. Worth about $50.00 give or take.

Back in the mid-80s, once I started my first real job, I bought a full set of 1983 football cards, figuring that I'd pick up Marino and all of the other '83 rookies. Instead, the company sent me their '82 set from the strike year. I question whether that was an accident.

I've still got 'em, and they're nice and mint in the box. Marcus Allen is about the only rookie from that class who went on to fame, though. Overall, that year stunk up the joint.

Even though I don't know how much they are worth now, my two favorite cards from my collection are a 1968 Topps Nolan Ryan/Jerry Koosman rookie card and a 1952 Red Man Tobacco card of Willie Mays.

Anyone have any of the old 85 Quaker Granola Bar Cards? I have the whole set minus 4 of them. Seems like I have heard they are worth something as a whole.

I have some of the Topps Wonder bread cards of the 70s where you had to pop them out, but I didn't. I kept them inside the perfs.

1955 Topps Roberto Clemente rookie card is my best card.

I've been collecting rookie cards for about 30 years now...I'm missing some key rookie cards(63 Topps Pete Rose, 67 Topps Seaver, etc...) but it's a pretty nice collection.

I haven't been into card collecting for about 15 years. My favorites are a George Brett Topps rookie, Cal Ripken Topps Traded rookie, Greg Maddux Fleer rookie (bought a lot of 25 back in 1989 for $100), and a Mario Lemieux OPC rookie I pulled out of a pack.

I'm much more into memorabilia now. My favorite is a signed photo from the 1980 USA hockey team.

I guess I should mention that I haven't been into collecting for about 10 years now...anyone interested in a bunch of old pictures of men?

I have no clue to be honest, I have a Marcus Allen Rookie, a few Emmit Smith Rookies, and a really cool Derrick Thomas Holographic card.

I collected when I was a kid, probably from mid 1980s to mid 1990s. I haven't looked at the cards in probably 10 years. I mostly collected football. I had some baseball and basketball mixed in there though.

Are you seriously this retarded?

I guess your comic book fixation is SO much more mature. :rolleyes:

Was there mercury contamination in your pipes as a child or what?

I have this Whitney Houston card, so I put it in the middle of my Andre Rison cards in my binder.

I don't know why, I just thought it was funny.

My stupid ass missed out on 50 bucks once. I bought a pack of rookie cards at the fair one year and pulled out a Cade Mcnown rookie jersey card. The guy wanted to buy it from me for 50 and I said no thanks. It was worth a 100 at that time, I totally missed out on that deal.

I'm assuming it would be a Dan Marino jersey card that has been graded as near mint.I really have no idea what it's worth if much at all.

Other notables

Derrick Thomas rookie
Brett Favre rookie
Jerry Rice 49er's jersey card

Well I have 485 different D.T. cards.

The 1999 Score 10th anniversary Re-print autograph of D.T. is my fav. The last time I looked it's max price was $120.00 I have 4 other autos and 5 sweet Jersey cards Derrick also.
