Any rare 10 like the 1989 fleer glossy was not only print in low numbers and is very hard to find in good condition . Some of those card are definitely in a PSA bubble that is going to pop . But then who's to say that there is not a warehouse filled with 1952 topps and it not in the harbor

I'll never end up collecting them, but I think the 1991 Desert Shield set is one of the best modern sets. I hope they hold their value over time.

A lot of Topps Heritage will probably hold up over time also.

Default 1980s

The hardest and most expensive Topps sets for me to assemble from the 80s were the 82 Blackless, 84 Encased, 85 Minis ( especially in blank back), 88 Cloth and 89 Heads Up. The 91 Desert Shield was not too bad, but complicated due to the many counterfeits

Agreed on both counts. Topps has nailed it with Heritage year in and year out. Beautiful cards, on-card autographs, and print runs that are attainable but not ridiculous.

I put together the full swath of Anthony Rendon cards from last year and enjoyed the search so much that I wound up opening a few boxes just for fun (I hardly ever buy boxes of anything these days)...wound up building the set, SPs and all. It was an absolute blast.

The the parallels are beautiful cards as well. I know this board isn't a huge fan of shiny stuff but the Black Refractors simply pop.

I even built the High Number series with all the SPs and action variations and a bunch of the color swaps. I can't be the only one--check out the prices for some of the random parallels on eBay--people really like putting these sets together.

I know I'm not breaking new ground here but yeah, I think Heritage has as good a shot as any as holding/gaining value over the years. This year's High Numbers series is chock full of great rookies that could really boom in the coming years.

Not kidding at all - I can't wait to see the 2020 Heritage set based on the 1971 black border set.

Too bad they don't issue the exact same number of cards in the heritage sets.

I would have to believe that if a collector had a set with a stamped number higher than the stated/estimated production that this fact would have been revealed by now, but I have not heard of such a claim.

If more sets were produced than the estimated production amounts, than another theory could be that Topps produced multiple sets with the same serial number....but again I have not seen any collectors or dealers bring this fact forward either.

While it may have seemed like there were an endless number of McGwire RCs out there, there are only 1258 that are on record with PSA which is just over 25% of the alleged production amounts. This pct is probably a realistic number for such a card.

Surprisingly, these Tiffany cards do not have greater demand as their supply is exceedingly low as compared to their regular issue counterparts. Recent auction sales of sealed 85 TT sets were in the $700-900 range.
