Don't get me wrong. 90's MJ cards will ALWAYS be in demand and carry great value. You really can't beat cards that were produced during the playing days of the GOAT which also is the first era to introduce Inserts, Game Jerseys, Autos and Serial #'d inserts. No matter what year it is and how long time passes... collectors will crave and want those cards. However, there's a good number of supply with normal inserts as you can clearly see and have seen on the market. Abundant supply will decrease value. With LIMITED Serial #"d inserts, you won't run into that problem as the supply is already set and availability of them will continue to decrease with more time.
Low Pop BGS 9.5's will also one day become abundant as Population will keep growing with more submissions. I remember paying a premium on some of the Pop 1-3 BGS 9.5 MJ Refractors and Inserts. A year or two passed and the Population grew to 5-6 then 10-11 and lost that high Premium I paid for which sucked. At least with raw cards, I am paying for the actual card's value and not a grade. Just my opinion.
