Bidding Under the Influence #2

Date: May 29, 2021
Time of Bid: 2:43:27 AM
Cards: 1988 Topps #6 Jerry Rice RB, #43 Jerry Rice
 Price: $2.25 (+ free shipping)
What Was I Thinking?:
Actually made a pretty good choice here.  Most of the Topps football sets post-1986 don't get much fanfare.  The '88 set has a nice clean design, but today's collecting world can't seem to look much farther than the Bo Jackson rookie card.  These are relatively early Rice cards, ones that give you a good look at the man who was just on his way to becoming the greatest receiver of all time.  They're both clean copies, totally worth the couple of bucks paid.  There are far more embarrassing things to spend one's money on as it's creeping up on 3:00 in the morning.


  1. the 88 set is friggin beautiful and there's no wrong time to buy Jerry Rice cards

  2. Not a bad purchase at all. '88 Topps was the first football set I ever collected and it remains one of my all-time faves.

  3. I was just going to say... I bet his regular base card would sell for a couple of bucks here in the Bay Area by itself. And I wouldn't be shocked to see the RB card in dollar bins.
