1958 Yankees team card, one of the first vintage baseball cards I bought in the mid-1990s, shortly after Mickey Mantle's death. It's a little off-centered, but all I cared about was getting a Mantle. The sticker on the right side tells where he is seated. Cal Ripken Jr.'s Donruss rookie card. The card shop I frequented got a shipment of Donruss '82 wax packs for about five bux each, and I kept buying them until I got this card. When I opened the winning pack I ran back to the store and bought a screwed down plastic holder. back then it was worth about $65, now I believe it's around $30.
