1989 Topps Baseball Card Price Guide

Sometimes determining values of baseball cards is somewhat difficult and subject to interpretation. That isn’t the case with 1989 Topps Baseball …. a set that symbolizes the glut of trading card overproduction during the 1980’s. When I worked/owned card stores during the 1990’s/2000’s – this is one of the most common sets you’d see walk through the door. Normally the cards were carefully placed in binder sleeves, ordered either by team or by card number.  Other times it was entire boxes stacked full with this era of cards. However, not every card is worthless, and in fact, there are numerous very collectible cards that highlight this set.

Before you dive into the values below I want to make it clear that these cards are so common that most are worthless to many collectors. Anyone inside trading card circles know that if you search long enough – you can find the vast majority of these cards for free.

Essentially the trading cards from 1989 Topps Baseball are so common that selling them to seasoned collectors is similar to selling ice to an Eskimo.

The above statement is important because I may have a given card listed at $0.75 value – but that doesn’t mean it will be easy to find a buyer at that price. Expect to be laughed at if you take your cards into a dealer & expect the single card prices I have below.

That being said, if you were trying to acquire 1989 Topps cards of a certain player … especially in large quantity – that’s not going to free or easy. The challenge of acquiring a particular player is what’s reflected in the values below. You will notice in some cases I value a top player like Mark McGwire’s card #70 less than many lesser known players of the era many collectors would openly give you for free. That’s because I’m valuing the challenge in buying lesser known players on the open market versus the ease of finding stars like Mark McGwire regularly listed on sites like eBay and COMC..

For example below I have posted the cheapest sold prices (including shipping) on eBay over the last 90 days for Mark McGwire’s 1989 Topps card #70. Notice that you could have acquired 3 cards for less than $0.60 cents total! Obviously these sellers are losing money – and these types of sales don’t come up everyday, but it’s easier to find these types of sales for players like McGwire versus a lesser-known player. That’s why I value some common players over superstar players simply because there’s a lack of sellers listing common cards (cheap) from this era.

Complete Set Pricing

There’s also numerous ways to purchase an entire set online – or even purchase unopened packs … gum still included! When I used to own a card shop, I wouldn’t offer much more than a dollar or two when people brought in boxes & binders full of 1989 Topps baseball. Typically the used binders, 9-pocket card pages, and boxes sold faster than the cards themselves!

1989 Topps Baseball Complete Factory Set

1989 Topps Factory Sets

  • eBay Price: → $15 – $29 (includes shipping)
  • Dealer Price: → $1

You might have, or might be trying to sell a 1989 Topps Factory set. These sets were (and still are) issued by Topps every year for the complete set of Topps baseball. The prices I have quoted above are for “factory sealed” versions – which only means they have a thin layer of plastic around the entire box still. In most cases this sealing will not be in perfect condition, but as long as it’s mostly in tact – you can get the prices above. Keep in mind on eBay – you’ll be paying fees (about 20%) and shipping costs likely would exceed $10 on an item this size & weight. In other words, you’d net very little money from selling this set. That is why I have the dealer price set at $1 (maybe) because the dealer is going to know the cost effort to sell this set online will likely exceed the profit you will take home in return.

1989 Topps Baseball Complete Set In A Binder

1989 Topps Set In Binder Pages

  • eBay Price: → $30 – $45 (includes shipping)
  • Dealer Price: → $1

Most collectors are willing to pay more for a 1989 Topps baseball set that is already inside binder pages. Dealers are likely to pay you around the same price (next to nothing for this) – however smart dealers who have access to low UPS rates can really profit off 1989 Topps sets already placed inside binder pages. Most auctions on eBay quote $20+ for shipping which is embedded within the prices above. At those rates you’re not going to make much money selling these cards. However, at wholesale UPS rates – something like this would (likely) ship for less than $12. How do you find wholesale UPS/FedEX rates at retail??? Hint: try shipping at a College/University in your town. The one’s near me will quote you the wholesale rate – which is usually 50% off what you find online or at a UPS store!


Graded 1989 Topps Card Values

Over the years collectors have sent in 1989 Topps Baseball cards to grading companies to get a grade slabbed on them. I only quote cards graded by PSA below given that collectors primarily grade cards from this era using PSA. It seems the typical price for a PSA 10 Gem Mint card of any notable player would net you about $15.00 and I have several examples showing this in the pricing below. Rookie cards of key players like Craig Biggio and John Smoltz can sometimes fetch over $20, but not in all cases. Card #233 Greg Jefferies is one of the unicorns of the set – where Gem Mint condition cards sell upwards of $45 in most cases … partly due to the fact the card is difficult to find for sale.

#40 Craig Biggio

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $20.00
  • PSA 9 (Mint) $10.00

#233 Greg Jefferies

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $45.00

#240 Greg Maddux

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $12.00
  • PSA 8 (NRMT) $9.00

#343 Gary Sheffield

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $10.00

#380 Rickey Henderson

  • PSA 9 (Mint) $5.00

#382 John Smoltz

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $19.00

#530 Nolan Ryan

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $15.00

#540 Bo Jackson

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $15.00

#647 Randy Johnson

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $10.00
  • PSA 9 (Mint) $5.00

#700 Don Mattignly

  • PSA 10 (Gem Mint) $15.00 

1989 Topps Traded Values

1989 Topps Traded is a very significant set because it contains key cards of Ken Griffey Jr. “Rookies & Traded” sets were common in this era of trading cards, but still exist today. However, these cards were distributed in set form only – so the cards were never distributed in packs. The set featured rookies and players who got traded during the second half of the MLB season. The small boxed sets were normally found at hobby shops during this era, and are generally scarcer than cards issued in the main set. Given that these cards were only found in factory set form, the values below are for Mint Condition or better.

1989 Topps Traded Series Baseball Box Set

1989 Topps Traded Sets still inside the box are very common. You should be able to find one for sale for between $5 – $10 online. In hobby shops, it’s very common to find these in $1 bins or similar – given that many hardcore collectors have long collected this set of cards. Consequently, the values below are based somewhat on the challenge of obtaining a given player on their own since you can buy the entire set for about what one card might cost.
