    10 unforgettable 1990 baseball cards that made history and helped shape collecting for a generation

    Ah, 1990. MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice played on the radio alongside Wilson Phillips and Sinead O’Connor. The Cold War ended and the Persian Gulf War began. The Wet Bandits tried to rob a fancy house, but a kid named Kevin was home to save the day. Michael Jordan and Bo Jackson were kings. Neon was all the rage on the fashion front. But one of the biggest trends of the time? 1990 baseball cards.

    In 1990, the baseball card was peaking. Collectors (and speculators) were gobbling up whatever Topps, Upper Deck, Fleer, Donruss and Score put out. It was the era of card shops on every corner. Cards were part of the mainstream.

    Like any year, 1990 baseball cards have seen ebbs and flows. Some cards and sets got hot while others imploded. Today, only in a couple of instances is it about rarity. In fact, it’s the opposite except for a couple of exceptions.

    Man, I love it when articles take me back to being a kid...
    Hot summer days, buying a few packs on trips with mom to K-Mart or even the grocery store, begging to stop at the nearby card shop to browse for 1/2 hour or so (pleading for 15 more minutes), ripping open the packs I'd bought, aweing the cards and putting them in a binder, alphabetically by team (then I'm not sure which filter because when I look through those old binders, there's no rhyme or reason to the organization other than by team).

    Ah, those were the days!

    Excellent read! A shout out to the 1990 Score Traded Eric Lindros would have been a fun add.
