30 DAY BASEBALL CARD CHALLENGE
A card of a rookie you thought you were "investing" in
Before Sammy Sosa's reputation was smeared thanks to PEDs, like many others I was jumping on the bandwagon and buying up his rookie cards. 1990 was full of junk wax so many of this RCs weren't anything special since they could be had so easily. Donruss, Fleer, Score, Topps...all so common. His Leaf RC however was a different story. I was still new to baseball cards when Sammy's RCs were hitting the market and I didn't know much about the Leaf brand at all. It didn't take long for me to realize however that his Leaf RC was "the" rookie to own of Sosa. Thanks to his battle w/ McGwire his cards really took off on the secondary market. I've never been one to go "investing" in rookies, but this one time I did and plopped down about $50 for Sammy Sosa's 1990 Leaf Rookie on eBay. After everything that happend with him I've never speculated or jumped on the RC bandwagon again.
