    You never know when a card may gain value


    prolly a 50 cent card if the brothers were not in it.

    Card is close to worthless without them...I would guess this card had a lot more value back around 10-15 years ago during the trial.(or whenever that trial was)

    I remember I had(still have it) a green bay packers mini helmet signed by andre rison, Robert brooks, and Antonio freeman back during the mid to late nineties I was offered $200 for it by a sports dealer, would be lucky to get $50 for it now....

    I am guessing a lot of people don't even remember who they are...

    Would have been a better card if they were at a football game where the QB was in shotgun formation

    Well, could mean you murder two people and get judged innocent

    Would be quite the card if Mark Jackson kills someone ...is sent to prison and kills the menendez bothers. OH BOY!!!!!

    Crazy that nobody really noticed this until just now. Or at least it never went mainstream. The card will be worth less then $1.00 is less then a week. As cool as it is that set of cards was from the era when cards were way overproduced. Anyone who collected cards back then probably has a couple of these Mark Jackson cards in their "commons" boxes. I'm sure I probably do. By the time I can find it , it will be worthless. There are gazillions of this card out there.

    Now if it was from the mid 80's before the boom the value would hold.

    I know I do...spent most of the 90s collecting cards as a pre-teen and teenager. Must of had 20 different card companies back then...remember Flair...thick cards which came something only around 6-8 cards in a pack.
