Default 90s insert mailday (Ripken/Jeter). Basketball collectors will appreciate this one!

The goods:





Picked all three of these up from the same seller on a certain popular auction site. Paid under $750 for the lot. The cards are:

Derek Jeter 1998 Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems #ed/50

Cal Ripken 1999 Thunder Super Rave #ed/25

Tim Duncan 1999-00 Hoops Decade Retrospection Collection Parallel #ed/89


Those of you who follow basketball cards know that the Kobe Bryant 97-98 PMG card goes for $5k-$10k, and the MJ for double that. So I'm hoping that the release of Fleer Retro football leads to renewed interest in the baseball and football parallels.

I've been selling off a lot of my rare basketball inserts (Essential Credentials, SPx Grand Finale, Star Rubies, Precious Metal Gems, 1/1s, etc) and "reinvesting" the money into those same cards from baseball and football. I'm a collector at heart, so it will be hard to part with these cards at any price, but I'm hoping the Jeter grades a 8.5 or 9 from BGS and that I can sell it for $5k when he's inducted into the HOF in 2020.

Wow, those are really nice cards. Depending on how much you gave for them, you could be looking at a small gold mine there. Those 90's inserts will continue to go up in price over the years.

Man. If pmg's had the hype they do in basketball, that Jeter would be 7-8k+, easily.

Great cards
