The 1990s were very much a decade marked by transition. Junk wax early on gave way to a virtual cornucopia of additions to baseball products and the hobby would never be the same. Inserts came first and were followed by parallels, Refractors, numbered cards, jersey pieces and autographs. This one decade took collecting from mostly low-end products to more mid-end products. It both killed and revitalized the hobby at the same time. Early 1990s products maintain little value except for rare parallels and high-graded rookie cards. Although better value products came along in the late 1990's, the rookie classes were not particularly strong in the long run.

One thing to note is that in 1998, the MLB and the country were captivated by the incredible home run battle between Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire. Cards of both players pushed to record highs. McGwire would ultimately prevail, breaking Roger Maris' home run record. However, steroid allegations plagued both players in later years and their card values plummeted.

1990s baseball cards feature several top rookies that are still in high demand. While many have retired, a few still continue to produce at a high level. Top rookies from the 1990s include Derek Jeter, Chipper Jones, Alex Rodriguez, Frank Thomas, Mariano Rivera, Mike Piazza, Roy Halladay, David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, and Josh Hamilton.
