A supercard must meet the following criteria:
-It must be from 1976 or after (cards before that time fall into the classic category)
-It must be a card coveted by collectors.
-It must be instantly recognizable by collectors.
-The card must be of a player with proven tallent, no unproven prospects.
-They must be an All Star and preferably an MVP.
-It must be a regular non-insert card.
-It must have been available in packs, (the only exception being Traded and Update sets).
-It must be, or have been at it’s prime, worth $100. (this is for base level cards, low numbered variants and various ‘fractors don’t count)
I will admit I have a bias towards cards form the late ’70s through the mid ’90s. Beyond about ’95 I am not all that well versed. So please feel free to make suggestion based on the criteria above.
