Since there are so many insert cards out there it would be almost impossible for me to make a poll of them all so for all of you poll hounds out there sorry about that.
My favorite inserts would probably by the Topps Chrome Refractors from the 2012 Topps Heritage Sets, they're really nice and are also worth a little today, so in the future I am hoping their value skyrockets haha.

I also like the 1999 Upper Deck Ovation Baseball Piece of History insert sets, which also includes one of my favorite Mantle cards and my favorite modern day Mantle card.

And finally, another great insert came from the 1991 Upper Deck series. It was a single card insert which features Michael Jordan. The picture was taken over him during a batting practice session and shows him batting in his Expos uniform. This card, if I remember correctly, is known as his true MLB rookie card.

Very nice autographed cards . Those Topps 205 & 206 are some of my favorites from the modern releases. My favorite insert set comes from the 2002Diamond Kings T204s , numbered to 1000 they do seem somewhat hard to come by I've managed to get about half the set and would be interested in trading for any that may be " unwanted" :D . Thanks to Leon for opening up another forum !Brett

Love the tobacco sized parallels as well, 2002 206 I have a decent amount of Mauer signed mini's. Also, the printing plates. I think it's pretty fun trying to collect all four colors of the plates that make up the card. Here are four of Mike Moustakas, I got them all signed as well:

How could it get a 10 with those rounded corners and bit missing from the sides?

Kidding, I'm kidding.....:D

Nice card.

Funny, but it would be neat!

Not cards, but I had picked up the 4 plates for the cover of the Feb/Mar 2007 Beckett, and had them aitographed by at the 2010 National.

I got them from Beckett on ebay. And I got them for a very reasonable price. It was somewhere under $200 for the set.
