My Jose Canseco Want List

It took 28 years of collecting but I have finally put together an organized list of cards I need to complete my Jose Canseco collection. Yes, you heard correctly. COMPLETE. As long as Topps and other manufacturers continue to produce new Canseco cards, I will continue to pick them up. I started collecting Jose in 1990 when I was 10-years old and will likely continue picking up new cards until the day that I die but the list below features cards that I need more than any others.

Many of the pre-2000 cards do not pop up often and when they do, as one would expect, the price reaches unreasonable levels. I love Finest but I’ve never seen the ’94 Refractor for less than $40 dollars. To me, paying $90 for the ’93 Refractor was the most I’ve paid for a single card and trust me, it hurt. Still, that was an iconic card, ’94 Finest suffered from the dreaded sophomore slump and it pretty much is a forgotten product. If you think about it, Finest didn’t really come into prominence until 1997.

Here I go again yapping about baseball cards. It’s what I do and have done at Wax Heaven since 2007. If you have any of the cards listed below or any other rare-90s or 2014-2018 game-used relics and autographs of Jose Canseco, do not hesitate to contact me ASAP. I can be found on Twitter at @TheWaxHeaven and by email at I usually respond to everything within one hour, especially when it comes to cards I need.

Thank you for reading.
