The cost of overproduction – 1991 Topps Chipper Jones #333 RC

In economics, the term overproduction refers to an excess of supply over demand of products being offered to the market.  That is what happend in the mid-late 80’s to the early 90’s in the hobby.  During this time card manufacturers made products for every man, woman, and child around the world.  One of the best cards in the 1991 Topps baseball card set has to be the Chipper Jones #333 rookie.  Chipper is having a great year, currently batting .415 with 12 HR and 35 RBI’s.  You would think that a player doing that great would have a rookie card going through the roof.  Thats not the case here.  Even with Jones having such a great season his 1991 Topps #333 rookie won’t even sell for a $1.00 on eBay.  This is all because there were so many of them produced.  Jone’s most valuable rookies would be his 1991 Topps Desert Shield and 1991 Topps Tiffany.
