OK, this is recent baseball card price guide history. Probably the most iconic rookie baseball card since the 1950s. Maybe only 2nd to Mickey Mantle. Off the top of my head, I can't think of a rookie card that can get you these prices (below for) besides maybe Willie Mays and Hank Aaron rookie cards from the early 1950s.

Wow. There is not much more to say. They are some very powerful figures. Even after a slow start Albert's card still commands a hefty price that very few cards in existence can match. And it has been going up since early 2009.
