10 Most Valuable 1992 Topps Baseball Cards

Unopened Box of 1992 Topps Baseball CardsOne of the things that I’ll always remember about 1992 Topps baseball cards is that they did the unthinkable that year:

they left out the gum.

But they did offer up some parallels for the first time in company history with their Gold and Gold Winner cards.

And the set packed plenty of star power and even a couple of decent rookie cards in Manny Ramirez and Shawn Green.

Sadly, these days, most of the cards in the set aren’t worth the cardboard on which they’re printed but there are some here and there which can have value in top condition.

And in this guide, I’ll run through the ten most valuable.

Let’s jump right in!

Don Mattingly Rookie Cards Collectors Guide

Remember when Don Mattingly rookie cards were the hottest thing in hobby?

As his career and popularity skyrocketed during the mid to late 1980s, so too did demand for his rookie cards.

Everyone had to have one.

Well, times and the hobby have certainly changed but you may be surprised at just how valuable Donnie Baseball's rookies can still be in.

It's a testament to just how well these cards have stood the test of time.

10 Most Valuable 1982 Topps Baseball Cards

Most Valuable 1982 Topps Baseball Cards

While it may not be one of the most popular sets of the era, the 1982 Topps baseball card set packed plenty of star power and two key Hall of Fame rookie cards.

And its dual hockey stick border design is instantly recognizable...

But, you'll remember that by 1982, Topps was no longer the only major company producing baseball cards as both Donruss and Fleer had joined the scene the year prior.

As a result, Topps created this monster 792-card checklist and loaded it with subsets to try and keep collector interest...and collector eyeballs...away from Donruss and Fleer.

While this set may be slightly overlooked in the history of the hobby, it still delivers a great checklist.

And in this guide, I'll run through the ten most valuable.

Let's jump right in!

15 Most Valuable Garbage Pail Kids Cards

Original Box of 1985 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids CardsIf you were a kid or teenager during the 1980s, chances are you loved Garbage Pail Kids cards.

If you were a parent during the 1980s, chances are you did not…

Like the Mars Attacks cards that Topps released during the 1960s, their Garbage Pail Kids product line was met with an equal amount of disgust from outraged parents.

So much so that many parents and even some teachers wanted them banned altogether.

But why so much fuss over these little pieces of cardboard?

Well, those pieces of cardboard contained artwork and themes that weren’t exactly the most kid-friendly or positive in nature.

In fact, they were intended to parody the incredibly popular toy line Cabbage Patch Kids produced by Coleco at the time that actually were positive.

By contrast, the imagery on the Garbage Pail Kids cards and accompanying messaging were/are considered too grotesque, aggressive, violent and self-destructive for children.

And you’ll see why as we run through the list of the 15 most valuable.

Let’s jump right in!
