9 pocket sheets

I have purchase hundreds of hundreds of 9 pocket card sheets and have been discouraged and how the quality has continued to go down while the price at Walmart and Meijer is now $6 for just 35 for Ultra "pro" sheets. As I have posted before, I have been exploring alternatives. One such alternative is Amazon brand sheets.  Yes, Amazon brand.  I was very pleasantly surprised. 100 sheets for $11 and better quality that what I can purchase at Walmart.  With a thicker mill and easy fit, I was very happy. Now I'm exploring Gold Seal 9 pocket sheets that are 100 sheets for $17.50. 100-Ct. clear HEAVYWEIGHT trading card sleeve pages/protectors, 8.5" x 11" 9 Pockets per page times 100 pages gives you storage for 900 cards! Single-sided top loading for easy card insertion Durable, nonstick, non-glare, archival safe and acid free Reinforced heat-sealed seams to last

1990 Topps

I now have spent a week on Topps 1990. I own way more 1990 Topps cards than I thought I owned. I am 99% sure I have two complete sets and most likely many incomplete sets. I'm thinking at this time that I will probably only keep 3 binders worth. I admit I like these cards better than when I purchased them in 1990. Since I have hardly touched them since then, they are in great condition. I did pick up a few hundred of them (maybe over a thousand) in 2020 while aquiring other cards. 12 Most Valuable 1990 Topps Baseball Cards #414 Frank Thomas Rookie Card #336 Ken Griffey Jr. #692 Sammy Sosa Rookie Card #757 Larry Walker Rookie Card #701 Bernie Williams Rookie Card #331 Juan Gonzalez Rookie Card #1 Nolan Ryan #2 Nolan Ryan (The Mets Years) Baseball Card #3 Nolan Ryan (The Angels Years) Baseball Card #4 Nolan Ryan (The Astros Years) Baseball Card #5 Nolan Ryan (The Rangers Years) Baseball Card #300 Bo Jackson Baseball Card

2021 Goals

1) Catalog at least half of my 1990's baseball cards. I have many thousands to do. I believe 10-15 thousand cards between 1990 - 1999 that still need to be cataloged. 2) Additionally, I would like to put all of my 1990's cards into binders. That project will be expensive and as time consuming as goal #1. 3) Also I would like to create more videos for youtube and try to make them more pesonalble. 4) Lastly, I will be aquiring more cards, but purchase less and specifically for certain holes in the following sets: 1959 Topps 1962 Topps 1964 Topps 1972 Topps
