The world's most trusted source in collecting

I guess the key is to pick a set or insert set that a) you like, and b) has some value on the secondary market, so that when you're finished with the thrill of the chase and the satisfaction of completing the sets has passed, you're left holding something that you can move and not lose your @$$ on. The mid- to late-90's had some AWESOME insert sets in all price ranges that would be fun to work on. I have always loved the 2000 SPx Signatures set, so I just started working on that one myself.

It doesn't require buying boxes as you will have better luck just buying the individual cards. What is nice is that they were sequentially numbered year over year with the last one being Tony Gwynn #72 in 1996.
However if you want to break boxes than I would recommend any of the Leaf and Donruss products from the mid to late 90s. They are fun to break and usually have some nice inserts in them.
