Default Most collected teams?

Aside from the Yanks, Redsox and probably Dodgers? What teams would you say are the most collected? I'm curious where the Orioles would stack up.

I'd put in a vote for the Cards and Giants.

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Well, if you think about it in terms of economics, the O's come in at #19 (according to Forbes in 2017). By this measure, the usual suspects come out on top (Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs, etc.). Since this accounts for gate revenues, merchandise, tv deals, etc., I bet this is a pretty good current guess.

But I bet it also depends on demographics. Guys like me would rank them higher because I saw Ripken, Jr. play when I was a kid, and he was awesome. Pretty much when someone says Orioles, he pops into my head; along with Billy, but that is another thread.
Also, Forbes has Toronto ranked higher. Really Forbes???? Really????

Default Orioles

Unsure where the Orioles would rank, but they are my number one collected team, so on my personal list they'd be #1.

Yankees, Red Sox, Tigers, Cardinals and Cubs would be the top 5. Post war Brooklyn Dodgers are huge, but LA Dodgers wouldn't make the top 5.

With sales from my ebay store over the last 3 months of the original 16 teams, here they are in order of total units sold: 1)Pirates, 2) Red Sox, 3)Tigers, 4) Yankees, 5) Cardinals, 6) A's, 7) Cubs, 8) Reds, 9) Braves, 10) Chisox, 11) Giants, 12)Orioles, 13) Senators/Twins, 14)Phillies, 15) Dodgers, 16) Indians.

Overall, fairly close spread amongst all teams....Pirates cards accounted for 5.2% of total units sold, while the Indians accounted for 4.1% of the total.
