  • I recently came across a card that I didn't have with the others since it was kept in the original package . . . I'm reminded too that it didn't appear in "the book" when I got one back in 2007, either.

    It's the 1998 Fleer 23K Gold Mark McGwire 62 HR commemorative card. (to clarify, I'm talking about what's in the attached photo)

    Can anyone tell me anything about this with regards to book value, and consequently if it's worth holding onto?

      • I put a scan of what I am talking about with the post, hopefully that will help.

        • Yeah, for one reason or another, I can't find pricing on items like these. Is there a weight listed? Or is it gold plated? You may want to talk with a jeweler on this one to get a better idea. What is it numbered out of?

          • That card was sold individually, like it is in the picture. If I remember right, it's been a long time, when they came out they were originally selling for about $29. However, they didn't move real fast and several places reduced the cost. I might be wrong, but I don't think Beckett lists cards that are produced/sold individually. Everything I see in Beckett, that is priced, seems to come from boxes of products. The card you're talking about did not come from a boxed product.

            Have a good day.

            The main items Im looking to trade for are
            Baseball HOFers Autos I need
            Orioles Autos I need
            Baseball HOFers GU I need
            Orioles GU I need
            Vintage Orioles I need 1950s through 1970

              I see it anywhere from $3 to $30 on e-bay which is why I asked. I saw one person even cracked the packaging and had it PSA graded. I would think though, this would be the one case where the original packaging would be worth more than a PSA grade/seal (if it stays unopened, it should be a PSA 10, I would think).

              As for OriolesFan comment, I think it was originally purchased for $15. But like I said originally it's hard to find any information at all about the card. If it's "limited edition", how many in the total run, how was it made (probably 23K gold plated cardboard, just complete gold flake like in the later Topps cards), etc. The card I scanned up above has a serial number in the high 80000's, so my feeling is it's quite not as much "limited edition" as Fleer wanted people to think.

              But again, I have no information on the card, and no one seems to have any all the times I've searched for it.

                Just because a card is brand new and still in it's original packaging doesn't make it a Graded 10. A grade is based on several factors that include centering and surface appearance.

                  I would say so, especially after I got my PSA order back...sheesh, I thought I had at least a clue on grading cards.
