I would be interested to know what other collectors think about this. Currently, what do others feel some of the hottest baseball cards are by decade?

Here are a few of my picks:

1900-1910 - T206 Cobb
1910-1920 - 1914 Cracker Jack Mathewson
1920-1930 - 1925 Exhibit Gehrig RC
1930-1940 - 1939 Ted Williams RC
1940-1950 - 1948 Leaf Jackie Robinson RC
1960-1970 - 1963 Rose RC
1970-1980 - 1978 Murray RC
1980-1990 ???
1990-2000 ???
2000-present ???

What's the market on the MJ rookie card like now a days? I remember it was a really hot card back in the early 90's (last time I bought cards) but it was getting counterfeited all the time.

Is there anything from the 80's, 90's, or 00's really worth buying. I can't remember the last time I bought anything other than pre 1980's cards.

40-50 '48 Leaf Robby may be the toughest key post-war sportscard in collector-grade or better.

50-60 The Mantle is obvious...Although I'd be more inclined to say the '53 Mays or either '54 Williams...

60-70 '64 Rose AS-Rookie

70-80 '71 Munson AS Rookie

80-90 88 Donruss Jeff Blauser ...

From the 80's- 87 Fleer Bonds cards have been selling, but at lower levels than 2 years ago. Look for his cards to move upward as he approaches the home run record. Other cards showing good volume from the 80's are Palmiero, Maddux and R. Johnson.

In the 90's you have A. Pujols, A-Rod, M. Tejada, and to a lesser extent Jeter, M. Ramirez, and Piazza.

Ichiro and A. Soriano and currently leading the 2000 crop.

The big problem with 90's cards is that there are so many Rc's of a given player. It's difficult to narrow down which is a players most popular RC card.

For whatever reason, I neglected to add the decade of the 1950s in my initial post. Here it is now:

1950-1960 --> 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle & Willie Mays, 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle & Eddie Mathews, 1953 Bowman Whitey Ford, 1955 Topps Ted Williams, 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle, 1957 Hank Aaron, Willie Mays & Ted Kluszewski, 1958 Willie Mays

And if I had to pick just ONE from this decade? That's easy. It's the 1952 Topps Eddie Mathews -- my pick for the most popular card from the 1950s.

Let's not forget about the 1953 Bowman Pee Wee Reese - an absolute classic!

77's,

Teddy is doing fine. Safe and sound!

I picked up a nice Psa 8 1952 Monte Irvin and an Sgc 88 Dave Philley (Cleveland)
variation and Sgc 88 Whitey Ford both from 1954. All are nice and I grabbed
them late November. Other than those nice ones I've snagged a handful
of decent nm cards.

Hope your sets are moving along well too!

Michael, super-cool icon.

aconte, thanks for the update. I've got three sets working right now with 77 at the front of the line. Steady, but slow.
