Thank you so much! This is exactly why I posted in here. Thanks for everything :-) I'm not into minor league cards at all, but I understand why some people would collect them. In hockey we have In The Game (ITG) who do minor league/non-licensed stuff and I don't think it's worth a broken penny, but they do have their hard core collectors.
I think I'll snag myself a raw 1992 Bowman and either a PSA 10 or BGS 9.5. Like I said, it's strictly a personal collection thing so I want the one card that is universally recognised as his primo RC. The Jeter was a GREAT comparison. I remember having a bunch of those at the time because it's when you could buy more than one product. Once again, thanks for everything guys, greatly appreciated :-)"I like chicken wings"

The 1992 bowman is a lame card in my opinion. He is in street clothes and just looks awkward. The 1990 procards is very cool.......

From a brand and time standpoint it is his best I agree. Maybe lame is the wrong word. It is strange how they did the photo.

His 1993 Bowman although not his first bowman is a much nicer looking card in my opinion......

I wonder if the 1993 was his first mainstream card if it would be worth more than the 1992. Just because it's such a nicer looking card. I know the PSA 10's of the 1993 have more than doubled in price in the last year. The 1992's have gone up about 25%.
