Pick one and give a reason. Because we only have 4 or 5 posters on this board I couldn't put too many option out there. My apologies to Sportflics, Upper Deck, O-Pee-Chee, and Bowman.

Upper Deck should be on the list. I still remember passing up a Griffey Jr. Upper Deck card for like 20 bucks when I was 9. It was worth a lot more then that in the late 90's. Not sure what happened to it.

Always like Donruss the best, maybe b/c it was middle ground. Topps was cheap, Fleer more expensive.

Morgan, i remember going into debt as a kid using all my money to buy that Upper Deck Griffey Jr. card for 8 bucks when it was worth like 5 and rising!

Sooo depressing looking at what every card from that era, 86-91ish is worth. Nothing.

Topps is old school and didn't take twenty years off like Fleer did.

That's my pick.

I have the Topps complete sets from 87-90 or 91. I wonder if they are worth selling, or if any would be interested in buying them.

Another vote for Upper Deck. Some of my favorites include Frank Thomas flipping off the camera. Michael Jordan White Sox rookie card, and Nolan Ryan collection.

I voted Topps because thats what I collected as a kid. I always liked the design of Topps better mostly because it was easy to distinguish what year the card was based on the look alone.

I had the 89 UD Griffey as well. My childhood dreams had that card becoming the next Honus Wagner. It never occurred to me that everybody had that card. Other cards I collected like that:

-1983 Topps Traded Darryl Strawberry
-1984 Donruss Don Mattingly
-1985 Topps, Donruss and Fleer Doc Gooden
-1986 Donruss Jose Canseco
-1986 Donruss Rookies Wally Joyner

Those are some good ones Crackem. The 84 Donruss Mattingly was like the holy grail of collecting when I first started opening packs. I'm sure I have some '86 Fleer Update and Topps Traded Bonds cards lying around somewhere at home that might be worth something.

Topps, hands down. I also have the sets from 85-91, but what sucks about Topps is that most of the rookie cards wound up in the traded sets, so the sets aren't worth much. I don't understand how kids can collect baseball cards anymore. It seems like there's 100's of different cards out, and they're like 5 bucks for 5 cards.
