Mike Schmidt Rookie Card Collectors Guide

Of all the great baseball cards made during the 1970s, the Mike Schmidt rookie card certainly stands out as one of the decade's best.

Unopened Box of 1990 NBA Hoops CardsLooking back on the 1990 NBA Hoops cards set, I’d have to say it was easily one of my favorite basketball card sets of the era and maybe even all-time.

I thoroughly enjoyed the 1989 Hoops set that preceded it and those that came after.

1990 SkyBox Michael Jordan Basketball Card Collectors Guide

I'll never forget how excited I was as a kid when I first got my hands on a 1990 SkyBox Michael Jordan basketball card.

Few cards of that era re-created the high flying action synonymous with the legendary Michael Jordan quite like this one.
