Fun Cards: 1969 Rookie Stars Robert Plant & John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page & John Bonham
In 1969 Led Zeppelin burst on to the scene with some of the loudest blues rock around. There is not a single not-awesome song on their debut album, and their renditions of Willie Dixon’s “You Shook Me” and “I Can’t Quit You Baby” are insanely good.
If Topps made music trading cards in 1969, which set of “Rookie Stars” would be worth more today? Plant & Jones, or Page & Bonham. Plant has sustained his career much better than Page, but Bonham’s early demise might have driven up the price of his card in the 1980s rookie card craze.
