    Hi Putrido20,
    Cards from that era do not usually go for a great deal of money unless they have been authenticated by a 3rd party. Ken Griffey Jr. cards are the most valuable cards from 1989; however, he was not in the 1989 Score base set. He was included in the Rookie/Traded set. Hope that helps.

    As with most things, there really isn't one answer. Some cards are extremely valuable; others, have dropped in value significantly. Ultimately, the motivation for collecting (personal enjoyment vs. investment) should drive your decision of whether or not to collect and what to collect. Monetarily speaking, the vast majority of post 1980 cards are not worth a "significant" amount of money. This is of course, is relative. Keep in mind that high grade cards from star players will generally go for at least a little bit.

    As you go farther back in time, condition becomes less of a factor in determining a "minimum" value. That is, a 1954 Hank Aaron card is going to have some value regardless of the condition. However, as you move up the quality scale, the a cards value will increase. Sometimes, this jump is quite significant.

    Hope that helps! Whether you collect for personal enjoyment, financial gain, or some combination of the two, is really the biggest question to answer.
