Baseball Card Show Purchase #9 – Don Mattingly 1984 Topps ROOKIE CARD!!!!
I have made obtaining this baseball card a goal of mine off and on over the last 2-3 years.
Never a top priority, there is no doubting that owning Don Mattingly’s 1984 Topps rookie card is essential for any collector that values the hobby from the 1980′s.
I had to haggle with the seller a little bit on this one.. He wanted $8.00 and I was willing to pay $5.00. Ultimately, we settled on $6.00 and now I am the proud owner of one of the greatest cards released during the 80′s.
Have a look:
This card was on the ‘Top Ten Most Wanted Cards’ list that I posted a few months ago. It was #10 on the list, and it feels great to know that I can finally state that ‘I Own A 1984 Topps Don Mattingly Rookie Card’.
I never had this one as a kid, just the Donruss rookie. Obtaining this card has been a long time coming and I am loving it!!
