The Money Card

Over the past few years Topps has produced cards featuring the game's top talents with old coins.  I have purchased a few of these from time to time.

They often sell for big bucks to player collectors.  I'm not completely in love with the idea of spending over $30 for a piece of cardboard with my favorite player, an old coin from the 80s and a stamp valued at under 25 cents.

My breakpoint on these kinds of cards is $15 or less.  Well, I managed to score the below card for a winning bid of $14.50.  The puppy love stamp did it in for me.

Do any of you collect these gimmicky cards?

  1. I've never gone out of my way to pick any of these types of cards up. Topps Gallery had some coins in the cards from the country that the player was from and I though that was kinda cool. I remember I got Ichiro and it had a Japanese coin in it.
