The first two guys that come to mind are Joba Chamberlain and Justin Upton BC Autos. Not sure what the Upton sells at anymore, but it was huge when it was released I believe. After thinking a little more, Matt LaPorta and JD Drew also came to mind.

It's an easier task to list the players who maintained or increased value the last fifteen or so years - and don't forget the cost of inflation! The lost money is surely going somewhere though...

A little bit of a stretch, forget the year, but when Koufax started signing with TOPPS, his triple threads stickers /18 went for 300+. Now they can probably be had for $200 and under.

1987 Fleer, that was insane. Freaking Will Clark rookies going for $30. It's still a set you've got to bust at least one box of in your life, fantastic set and fun break.

1986 Donruss Jose Canseco, my Zod those things.

this list can go on forever but the only 2 cards i own that i held onto for too long was my travis hafner spx and bowman autos. they were going for like 100 a pop in his prime. i sold the bowman for $70 and held on to the spx, which is now worthless.

oh and i just sold a howard chrome rc in a lot of other philly cards for $8 shipped. ouch

Ben Grieve was a good one

R.A. Dickey and Chris Davis a few years back
Dice K prices were pretty crazy
Rick Ankiel, Joel Zumaya, Chad Cordero, James McDonald, and Brian Wilson all had some spikes.
I think that im gonna have to throw Eric Gagne out there though and end with that one lol

2004 Philip Hughes Bowman Chromes. Sold one for a decent amount, I think around $70. Last one I saw sold for a dollar.

I know mcgwires 1985 topps was selling for $300 at local card shows in 98.

Edit. I remember people coming in that didn't even collect cards coming in to buy Mcgwire rookies just for "investment". I got 100 count lot of Mcgwires in 1986 I believe for .60 each. He bought me my first new car. A 1998 buick lesabre. I still have the car and it has over 500k on it.

Hopefully Dom Brown can get one another team and turn it around. I still think he has it in him to be a decent player.

Unfortunate career. At least he miraculously made it for a few games.

2006 Topps Alex Gordon

Got me back into the hobby in college for a brief while. Until I had realized I had wasted a ton of money lol.

Here is an interesting read on the subject.
This card costs 'cause you aren't supposed to have it'

In 1991, when Stadium Club debuted the stars were going for $10+. Griffey was something like $15 and Frank Thomas was $30. Both $1 cards now, if not in the quarter bin's. That set was so hot, minor minor stars were going for $1+.

The same happened with 1992 Bowman and 1991 OPC Premiere. That 1991 OPC Thomas card was $10 strong for a while. Does anyone remember how insane the 1991 OPC hockey release was? Some cards at $40+.

Also, IIRC 1990 Leaf John Olerud was $20+ at one point. I think it was the year when he carried a .400 avg well after the all star break, sometime between 1992-1994. John Kruk was carrying a .400 (or near it) avg at the time too, but I dont recall his prices on his 86-87 rc's.
