Baseball Card Price Guide History - 1984 Donruss Don Mattingly

Possibly the most famous rookie card of the 1980s. This card help lift the 1984 Donruss baseball set into elite status for a few years. At one time this card and set could have been considered high end. Here is how the card done through the years

12/1986 Baseball Card Magazine     $9.00-15.00
10/1996 SportsCards Mag               $60.00
2/2005 Beckett Baseball                  $15-40.00
11/2008 Beckett SCM                    $10.00-25.00

Last week on ebay                          $19.72 (34 sales with about half of them graded)
The card is no where near what it could possibly command 15 years ago. However, it was a decent investment if you were collecting in the mid 1980s and kept it for 25 years.

  1. Iconic card... I love the fact that we can pick up most of the 80's rookies for a fraction of the cost these days.
