Baseball cards from 1988 consist of cards from Topps, Fleer, Donruss, and Score, and also include the traded sets and updated sets as well.  The Topps Traded set includes rookie cards of Roberto Alomar, and Jim Abbott, as well as players from the Olympics.

1988 Topps Baseball cards available currently on Ebay including sets, boxes, rookies and star cards.

In regards to 1988 Topps Baseball cards, this is one of the more overproduced sets of the decade.  1988 Topps Baseball is not highly desirable in my opinion, and I would only recommend collectors to have one set and maybe one unopened wax box.  The player selection is not that good.  One nice feature is the design, it actually has great eye appeal and Topps really did a great job with the photo colors. 

Boxes sell for about $10 with complete sets right around that price range as well.  It is widely available on ebay and many online card sellers.  It may, however, increase in value in the future.  Collectors nowadays generally feel that it will not increase in value much due to reported overproduction and it still being widely available almost anywhere you look. 

The best card in the set is the Tom Glavine rookie card.  He is a future hall of famer most likely, and that is one card that you get with this set.  There are other rookies that are decent and there is a nice selection of hall of fame players in the set.  The photos and card look are appealing though.  You also can get many hall of famer star cards in the set, as well as second year cards of all of the great rookies from 1987, including Greg Maddux among many others.

If you are looking for the best set at the best price, this set currently does not have that value in my opinion.  You never know what card collectors will think in the future though, and they may all of a sudden decide that this set is worthwhile.  One never knows, I am saving a set and a wax box myself for safe keeping just in case it does go up in value in the future.  For a forum discussion on this topic, please click here

Even though this mostly includes baseball rookies, Joe Montana rookie cards can be found here.
When most sports card collectors are looking for cards to get of a player, a first year card is typically at the top of their wish list.  A lot of these players have cards that are very affordable still, and now may be a great time to invest in the cards of players as it has been years since baseball cards have been in the demand that they were in the 1980's and early 1990's, and one never knows if and when that will happen again.
