“Pin-Up” of the Week: Jose Canseco ’86 Donruss Rated Rookie Commemorative Pin

Photobucket

Pins that commemorate cards are really fun.  The above pin recreates Jose Canseco’s 1986 Donruss Rated Rookie card, that once was worth over $100.00.  Rickey Henderson and Don Mattingly also have pins that look like their rookie cards.  Its an interesting concept that I’d like to see executed again.  These pins are very inexpensive, and in most cases cost less than $1.00 on eBay (not including shipping).  Ironically, Canseco’s rookie is worth about the same now.

$18.00 + for this

Can you believe that the Oakland A’s website is selling Jose Canseco 1986 Fleer Rookie cards for $18.00 plus shipping.  Who would spend that much for this card?  Your lucky if these sell for $0.99 on eBay.  I can’t imagine that people are actually buying them.
