The Top 10 Most Collectible Baseball Players Of The 1990s

1990s sports card collector Zanoo23_sportscards on Instagram recently conducted a vote on the most collectible baseball players of the 90s. Here are the final top 10 rankings of that vote:

  1. Ken Griffey Jr.
  2. Derek Jeter
  3. Barry Bonds
  4. Frank Thomas
  5. Cal Ripken Jr.
  6. Tony Gwynn
  7. Pedro Martinez
  8. Mark McGwire
  9. Randy Johnson
  10. Chipper Jones

What does “collectible” mean to you? Largest collector base? Most valuable cards? What leads to high demand for a player’s cards? A couple observations from Zan:

  • 8 of the 10 players above are hall of famers, and the 2 that aren’t (Bonds & McGwire) would easily be in without the performance enhancing drugs thing.
  • Jeter, Ripken, Gwynn and Chipper all played for only 1 team which bolsters them.

What would your top 10 be?
