For photography fans, 1992 Stadium Club baseball cards must have been about the greatest thing going.

Because, after a successful dive into the super premium market in 1991, Topps cleaned up their ’92 SC set even more, leaving just a small player/set identifier on card bottoms and creating plenty of space for big, rich photos.

Of course, like just about everything else issued in the early 1990s, there are more than enough of these babies to go around for generations to come.

But that doesn’t diminish their beauty, and these most valuable 1992 Stadium Club baseball cards still draw collector interest today in PSA 10 condition.

(Prices based on recent eBay sales.)

1992 Stadium Club Ken Griffey Jr. (#603)

1992 Stadium Club Ken Griffey Jr

Junior was still a year away from his big power breakout when this card first saw the light of day, but he was already among the most exciting stars in the game.

And, thanks to his part in helping launch Upper Deck a few years before — his rookie card was #1 in that 1989 UD set — Griffey was also already a hobby heavyweight.

Today, long after he wrapped up his Hall of Fame career, The Kid leads off here at around $25 for his “Members Choice” card in perfect graded condition.

1992 Stadium Club Don Mattingly (#420)

1992 Stadium Club Don Mattingly

And batting co-leadoff on our 1992 Stadium Club team is Mattingly … fitting, seeing as how he was the “best player since” guy before Griffey took up that mantle.

But that was in the 1980s.

By 1992, we were all hoping Donnie Baseball could put his back injury, um, behind him and continue his march toward Cooperstown.

Alas, it was not to be, and the guy who changed the hobby forever with his 1984 Donruss rookie card (and batting title over Yankees teammate Dave Winfield that same summer), bowed out in 1995.

Still, he’s a $25 buy here.

1992 Stadium Club Nolan Ryan (#770)

1992 Stadium Club Nolan Ryan

Even at 45 years old, Ryan wasn’t quite done in 1992.

It’s understandable, too, since he’d been ticking off major milestones every season since he landed with the Rangers before the 1989 season.

On his way to 5000 strikeouts, 300 victories, and seven no-hitters, Ryan ascended to baseball deity status, and his cards became permanently entrenched on the “Hot List.”

They’re still there today.

This base Stadium Club issue commands $20+ in PSA 10.

1992 Stadium Club Nolan Ryan (#605)

1992 Stadium Club Nolan Ryan (#605)

See how popular Ryan is?

He lands two cards in the top 10 here, this one the “Members Choice” version.

Like the base, this is a $20+ card in PSA 10.

1992 Stadium Club Ken Griffey Jr. (#400)

1992 Stadium Club Ken Griffey Jr. (#400)

Oh, right … Junior is pretty popular in cardboard, too.

And still.

Like Ryan, his second (base, in this case) 1992 Stadium Club card lines up at about $20 here (PSA 10).

1992 Stadium Club Jeff Bagwell (#606)

1992 Stadium Club Jeff Bagwell

Bagwell was among the most popular players in the hobby when this card debuted, having just won the 1991 National League Rookie of the Year award.

It was a sort of shocking ascension, too, as the Red Sox had traded the then-minor league third baseman to the Astros for reliever Larry Andersen late in the 1990 season.

You know, to bolster their championship chances. Which for sure paid off in the short run.

But Houston lost slugging first baseman Glenn Davis in free agency that off-season, and they gave Bags a chance to win the job the next spring.

Check!

Bagwell became a Houston legend and rode his 15-year power trip to a Cooperstown plaque — and a $20 card here (in PSA 10).

1992 Stadium Club George Brett (#150)

1992 Stadium Club George Brett

Brett would bang out his 3000th hit late in the 1992 season, making this a milestone card for one of the greatest third basemen of all time.

(Brett’s baseball twin, Robin Yount, also reached 3000 that summer.)

Always popular with collectors, Brett checks in here at about $20 in PSA 10 condition.

1992 Stadium Club Frank Thomas (#301)

1992 Stadium Club Frank Thomas

In 1991, Thomas came out of nowhere to post an unbelievable season — .318, 32 home runs, 100 RBI, 104 runs scored.

It would be the first of seven seasons in a row — and eight of nine — in which the Big Hurt would average better than .300/30/100/100 and set him on a beeline for Cooperstown.

These days, Thomas’ 1992 Stadium Club card approaches $20 in slabbed GEM MT condition.

1992 Stadium Club Bo Jackson (#654)

1992 Stadium Club Bo Jackson

Jackson was more than a year removed from the hip injury that ended his football career and curtailed his baseball progress when this card was issued.

It was among the first pasteboards to show him in a White Sox uniform, too, which proved to be a popular look even as Bo sat on the shelf all season long in 1992.

He came back in 1993 and made one last stand with the Angels in 1994 before hanging up his spikes, but Bo remains a hobby favorite even today.

Expect to pay $10+ for a PSA 10 copy of this card.

1992 Stadium Club Greg Maddux (#665)

1992 Stadium Club Greg Maddux

Maddux was still a peach-fuzzed kid pitching for his original team in 1992.

And, even though the Cubs went nowhere that summer, Maddux won the NL Cy Young Award before jetting off for Atlanta as a free agent that winter.

Mad Dog won three more CYs in a row with the Braves to help establish them as a dominant team of the 90s and to begin solidifying his own legend.

Today, Maddux is regarded by most to be among the greatest 5-10 pitchers ever, and this card from his first Cy Young season is about a $10 buy (PSA 10).
