When I was a teenager in the '90s I collected thousands upon thousands of Cards, and would without execption as soon as I opened the pack would put them safely under plastic for my future retirement...
Problem is everybody else did the same exact thing. The reason that cards from the 60's, 70s, are so valuable is that kids played with them put them in there bike wheels for that cool sound. And indevitabley their mom threw them out after a few years in the closet. So the Mint/Near mint cards from that era are in fact rare. Plus there is One Rookie card from that era of any partiular Rookie(in the 80's you had OPC in Canada and Tops from the States) Same exact card but the OPC had French and English and is a little more rare.
In the 90's you had Uperdeck, Score (Canada, and US versions), Bowman, OPC, OPC premier, Tops, Parkhurst, Leaf, Pacific, Fleer, Fleer Ultra,Pinnacle...,all had their regular plus the extra sets that came after.. so a Jager Rookie card is pretty much worthless.
However a Lafleur Rookie from the '70s in Mint is worth abut a grand
