    Post Blast from the Past: Select pricing from 1982

    http://www.fangraphs.com/not/index.p...l-cards-vol-1/

    Stumbled across this and found it interesting:

    In its inaugural season, Fleer was as confused as the rest of America, and designated Graig as Craig on its first run of baseball cards. The error became the Billy Ripken of its time, and its value shot to $21.00 by 1982, enough money to buy 16 gallons of regular gas or 36 Rickey Henderson rookie cards. In fact, here is a table of cards that were worth less in 1982 than the thrill of seeing a misplaced letter C:

    Warren Spahn 1948 Bowman RC $19.25

    Bob Gibson 1959 Topps RC $18.50

    Steve Carlton 1965 Topps RC $1.75

    Nolan Ryan/Jerry Koosman 1968 Topps RC $9.35

    Graig Nettles 1969 Topps RC $2.10

    Robin Yount 1975 Topps RC $3.25

    Paul Molitor/Alan Trammell 1978 Topps RC $2.75

    Ozzie Smith 1979 Topps RC $0.45

    My Mom never threw out my cards Steve, so I would go back to the day before my Grandma threw my Moms cards out.
