Million Dollar Question – Is Now The Time To Invest In Craig Biggio Rookie Cards?

Million Dollar Question – Is Now The Time To Invest In Craig Biggio Rookie Cards?

With the progression of Craig Biggio’s Hall of Fame vote tally, I would say that the odds of his election into the Baseball Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2015 is likely a 90% certainty.

In 2013, Biggio tallied 68.2% of the vote.  And in 2014, he claimed 74.8% of the votes cast.

Barring any ground-breaking, and earth-shattering news, I believe that Biggio will easily earn the extra votes to hit the magical 75% needed for enshrinement.

So, is it time to invest in Mr. Biggio now?  Buy hoards of his rookie baseball cards with the goal of flipping them when his name is more relevant in the hobby than it is today?

I am not one to turn down an option like this.  But, I am also not the guy that wants to buy a card for a quarter to sell it for a dollar as the associated Ebay and PayPal fees will surely put you in the red…

What do you think?  Invest in Craig Biggio with the goal of making money a year from now or pass?

Tearing Through A Pack Of 1989 Donruss

I received 1 pack of 1989 Donruss in the contest I won on the Autographed Cards blog.

Here are the results from the pack: 

Jack McDowell, Ray Hayward, Tom Gordon, Johnny Paredes, Todd Burns, Jose DeJesus, Tim Leary, Hensley Meulens, Wes Gardner, Willie Frasier, Bill Long, Bobby Bonilla(DK), Oswald Perez, Juan Castillo, and Eric King.

In my opinion, if it wasn’t for ‘Bobby-Bo’ this pack would have been a complete Dud!!!

Even while taking practice swings with a donut on his bat Dawson looks fierce!!!  I could not imagine being a pitcher as ‘The Hawk’ stares you down during a 1-on-1 duel!!!

Baseball Card Show Purchase #4

I grabbed these cards in a 5 for $1 box.  I was really surprised to find John Smoltz ROOKIE cards in this box… I just wished that there were more in there for me to scoop up.  And I also found more of Greg Maddux’s 2nd year card. 

I was pretty shocked to find all of these, but for $1.60, I was pretty happy too!!
