Top Performing Baseball Card Auctions: December 2017 – 1990s Edition

What a gnarly month it was. A block of cards from the Pinnacle bankruptcy of 1998 surfaced and the market went crazy. Several 1999 Ultra Masterpieces surfaced, all from the same seller. The Crusade Red Greg Maddux was actually listed as being from 1997 and no indication was made about it being the elusive red parallel, which I'm sure didn't help final value potential. The 1991 Donruss Elite Matt Williams pulled army strong numbers. Frank Thomas makes the list with the incredibly elusive Stand & Deliver Red Letter parallel. Finally, it's great to see Kirby Puckett make the list; his autograph is always nice to see. I could've filled this list with bankruptcy issues and Ultra Masterpieces but decided to showcase only a few of the top sales from these categories to give the list a bit of variety. Let's have a look at what made the list in the final month of 2017.
