Since people are opening more wax from the 80's do you think prices could increase?

Agreed.....10’s will always be sought after regardless of the 80’s stigma. Keeping my 80’s unopened wax for now, we’ll see what market interest will be in the upcoming years.

Back in the day, my family friend could get me 1984 Donruss boxes for $8.10.  Of course, we opened all those.... 

 

I pick up 1984D whenever I can to relive my earlier collecting years.  I have been meaning to pick up a 84D unopened but remembering what I paid to the prices now, I just haven't pulled the trigger yet.

I have access to about 400 unopened 1984 Donruss packs, if interested? These were picked up in an dealer auction in Chicago during one of the shows.

Hi guys - new to this site and agree with what others have said as 10's seem to be the only things garnering any kind of value from the "junk" era - Also, even if you have a lot of unopened wax boxes laying around and open them, it's still pretty hard to get a 10 lol I am thinking about focusing on Fleer releases from 83 and on and maybe Donruss as well as Topps stuff seems to be getting a little too rich for my blood - Anyone have any suggestions on what stuff from say 83 and up to like 91 I should do? Doesn't have to be rookies either as I am a sucker for a nice gem Jackson or Rose or Brett from this era - Thanks!

FOR SALE: 1989 Topps Heads Up Test: The Holy Grail of Ken Griffey Jr RCs


I am selling my 1989 Topps Heads Up Test: Ken Griffey Jr card. This is considered, by some collector, to be the Holy Grail of Ken Griffey Jr RCs. It is not professionally graded but it is in very good condition. In my opinion, it would probably grade somewhere between 7-9. The card has the suction cup still in tact and there is no surface damage on either side. This may be wishful thinking, but I would immediately accept a $3,000 offer.
