1989 Topps Traded Set #1T-132T

I hope you've had a chance to get your '89TT set already.  This one is quickly becoming a key set from '80s Topps collection, and should hopefully start to finally see its value increase in 2016.  Ken Griffey Jr. will certainly be announced for the Hall of Fame tomorrow, and already had his rookie card valued at $8.00.  When Greg Maddux entered the HOF, his '87TT rookie card jumped from $5 to $10.  Griffey's rookie should have no problem rising well above the $10 mark this year.  The '89TT set also contains Randy Johnson's 2nd card--which although it's technically not his rookie--it was released during the same year as his rookie, and was his first in a Mariners uniform.  Although the '89TT is a longshot from the famous '82TT featuring Ripken's 2nd card, it does deserve some more respect.  In fact, I'd rather burn the set than to sell it for under $10.  I hope the rest of the hobby world would agree.
