    Cards you have no idea are worth money

    For many reasons, there's always been cards which seem like commons but have a much greater value.

    Here's a couple:

    Jim Morris 2000 spx and Bowman Chrome:
    Disney made a movie about him and his very limited amount of cards make them popular.

    2001 Topps Traded Bat Ed Rogers
    It's been a long time but I believe it's very short printed and last I recall, they have sold for over $50

    2009 Topps Heritage Chrome Jerry Hairston jr.
    For whatever reason, the REGULAR version is non existent and has sold for around $100

    Also, a couple of 1994 Pinnacle Museum cards were redemptions and are very tough to find causing them to sell for a lot more than usual.

    So many more "washed up" and "never were any good" players that people cling to for some reason. It is amazing to see some of the overinflated asking prices for guys that just plain sucked.

    New players too. These days it seems every IP auto is an $8-10 or more card. Whatever happened to picking up signed cards for a few bucks, especially before a player makes it big. Too much prospect hype,

    Lastly, I am wanting to add a Brian Dozier auto right now, as he just came to the Dodgers. Nothing extreme, but the guy is nothing special. I think the cheapest auto on COMC when I checked was $15-20! I still also don't understand why Puig is still so popular (expensive). The guy really has done nothing to write home about yet and may never will. He should be a $15 auto at most!

    Watch what you say about Dozier! He was special to us Twins fans. He's having a down year this year, but he was the clubhouse leader for the Twins. Plus, his magical 2016 season is still in all of us Twins fans minds. The problem with him, he had 2012 Finest RC autos, and then nothing until a few Panini releases last year, and now he's in major Topps releases this year.

    1994 Topps ABCD Contest Card.

    I got it in a pack from a '94 Topps wax box I paid $5 for about two years ago and thought it was a garbage card that was inserted into packs. Luckily I kept it with my commons because I later found out that it is coveted by Topps completists. I sold it on eBay for $90.

    I think I ended up with a few of these in a binder from an estate auction a few years ago. I think it had a complete set as well. Anyone have any pictures or scans of these?

    Is the set worth anything? I have 2 of the 2 of the ABCD cards and a couple each of A, B, C & D contest cards.

    Let's keep this thread going folks. Im digging thru my collection daily to add more cards to my website and Im always looking for ideas of what people in the hobby are looking for. www.krazy4kardboard.com is the link if you want to take a look and throw me some feedback. Always looking to improve the site. A new layout is in the works here in the next month or so when I have the spare $150 for the new layout I want. Anyone that has a want list they want to forward to me just hit my profile up and shoot me a message here or on the site, either way will work. Im in my card stash 8 to 10 hours a day most days and I always have my want lists sheet laying around to refresh my memory of what to set aside. Hope everyone has a good turkey day this coming week.

    I will never forget 8 years ago I sold a 1998 Topps tek Darin Erstad #35 pattern 1 On ebay. It had 19 bids and sold for $48.77. I was shocked, and it is something I will never forget. No it was not a defractor.
