    I still have both of these cards.

    To think that the day I pulled the LaPorta it was selling for $160 and I thought it hadn't peaked yet, how silly I was.

    And yes, I checked, the LaPorta is still worth more.

All my auto collecting friends were shuffling around with photos and bats and whatnot (he had no per person auto limit). I wanted my ball and my bat for sure but that rookie card was getting signed first and foremost. Had he told us no on duplicate items, I would have been walking around with a non-auto'd ball and bat the rest of the day. One of my favorite autos ever obtained in person.
    Nice story.Where did you meet him?I bought some boxes years ago just for the thrill of pulling that card.

    Near the end of 1989, Jereome Walton's 1989 UD card was selling for more than Griffey's. $36 was it's peek, as I recall.

    Heh, a raw Griffey doesn't even get that now, but a raw Walton can be found in the 5 cent common box.

    Nomo-mania

    Going back to 1995 (hard to believe almost 20 years ago now) Hideo Nomo was the biggest thing ever and the biggest of the big was his 1995 Finest Refractor RC. It is a true RC unlike most cards from 90's Finest. I think Topps produced the "update" to Finest that year just to cash in on Nomo. This card sold for over $500+ for a long time with collector demand in the US and Japan. To this day, largely because of Japanese buyers it sells raw in the $80-$100 range.

    I believe you can do 5 vertical cards and 3 horizontal cards in those holders and they'll match up size-wise

    1990 Score #697 Bo Jackson. Quite possibly the hottest non rookie card, non error card of all time (especially in the junk wax era). These were an easy sell at $8-10.

    Yah, Griffey's another example.
    I just checked eBay completed sold auctions, and dozens of raw '89 UD Griffey rookies have sold for under $20 in the past month.
    You can easily buy one for $17 now.
