Players or sets that were once hot but now are not
Post any players or sets that were once hot and were what everyone wanted but are now either ice cold or sell for a fraction of what they once did.
I'll start it off:
1994 Topps Traded #44T Ben Grieve RC
After winning the 1998 AL ROY this rookie card was selling for $25-$40. Does it even go for a buck now?Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

I know Barry Bonds RC use to be up there then dramatically dropped after the steroids.Changing paths, no more set collecting. Just PC'ing Orioles Auto's and Patches.

Dwight Gooden '85 Donruss is one I remember. Hell, all his cards were hot.
The '88 Donruss Gregg Jefferies (or was it the '89) was really hot, too.Collecting pre-war, vintage and modern baseball cards.
Currently working on the T206 set, 1975 Topps, master collections of Roberto Clemente and Robin Yount.

Brien Taylor, #1 overall pick by the Yankees in '91. He was the "next big thing"...and fizzled miserably after getting hurt in a bar fight. He's now serving time in prison on cocaine charges.

As a Tiger fan, I'd have to say it would be Armando Galarraga. He was an okay pitcher, but of course is famous for the Near No Hitter. I remember his cards were a hot commodity after that game a few years back, Now I think they're only worth maybe a buck if that.

I am an avid Atlanta Braves Auto collector. I am in the process of updating all my autos to a spreadsheet and organizing them. I am always looking for Atlanta Braves RCs Autos and also nice veteran autos.
