Wow. Awesome and heart-wrenching at the same time. I actually LIKE '93 UD.

My wife approves of this video! Who knows if enough of us burn those old boxes of commons maybe those cards from the 80's and 90s WILL be worth something someday.

My sentiments exactly Scott.

Thanks for taking a few of those sets out of circulation. Maybe mine might increase in value - by about 3 cents for 1000 cards.

I still prefer using them as insulation. It's a much more "green" approach to make it through those harsh Chicago winters.

Hey! I need one of those '90 Donruss...just one though.

Rob- AKA "Guido" said...

Oh don't worry I have more. I was going to use the rest to show how to use 800 count boxes of this crap as between the studs wall insulation. Stay tuned for episode 2

Simply amazing...

The only other useful thing they are good for is getting them signed by the wash ups who played in that era.

I tried something like this one time, but all I got was a pit in my stomach watching a card of Gary Gaetti in a Cardinals uni looking back at me. With sad eyes. Wondering, why, why are you doing this to me? Even though I left the Twins, me and these other baseball cards were there for you to be a bunker when you played with your GI Joes and to prop up your CD collection when you got older. Now I have an urn of baseball cards next to my teddy bear.

Please Craigslist IDIOTS DO THE SAME TO YOUR BEANIE BABIES, Furbies, Over-produced sports cards and all the other fads that came and went . Walmart ripped everyone off, and they mass-produced all of this stuff! Just burn this kind of stuff or better yet, just donate it and right it off as a tax right off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a horrible thing for someone to do with their collectibles! You should have at least donated the cards to the local neighbor kids and/or repurposed them. How about getting those cards signed at public or private signings and appearances. Many players also sign for free or a fee through the mail. Getting my old cards signed is just a better way of appreciating the cards and the players that signed them. Baseball cards from 1991 are what got me into collecting baseball cards in the first place, and are my most favorite cards. How about burning 1988 Topps instead? They are by far the most boring cards ever!

Worst baseball card sets ever made were:

1986, 1988 to 1992 Topps
1990 and 1991 Fleer
1988 to 1993 Donruss
1988 to 1992 Score
1991 and 1992 Upper Deck
1990 Topps Traded
1990 Upper Deck High #
1988 to 1991 Fleer Update
1988 and 1990 Donruss Rookies

Many cards that get graded and come back PSA 9 and PSA 10 come from unopened packs and factory sealed sets, which is why some collectors and even dealers may be willing to pay more for factory sealed packs and sets. A 1987 Donruss or Fleer Barry Bonds, Greg Maddux, or Mark McGwire pulled from an unopened back or factory set that come back graded PSA 10 have sold for as high as $ 300 each in their prime on eBay. A 1986 Topps Factory sealed Christmas set lists for $ 150 in the Beckett price guide.

Jaded collector trying to be cool. You certainly are not my voice in the hobby.
