Japan real estate was the biggest of all...and of course their stock market followed.

1929 stock market

these are the biggest with largest pain...well we will see we may not be done in America yet.

Sports cards + memorabilia

 

 

Sport cards bubbles, like tulip bulbs, are self limiting because they are subject to increasing supply.  The spread between the wholesale bid and the retail asked is very very very wide, generally no bid for all but the most sought cards.  Rare exceptions such as a certified 1956 Mickey Mantle card are touted as examples to perpetuate the illusion of amazing gains.  The markets for most memorabilia are illiquid and also subject to very wide spreads.  :-[

Perhaps not all of these are in bubbles... perhaps the bubble is in the measuring stick - USD dollars (debt):

Rare exceptions such as a certified 1956 Mickey Mantle card . . .

 

Too funny you used this example since I own one of these (with an inherited basis of 5 cents or whatever the pack of cards cost back then).

 

Another obvious bubble not mentioned above was the Nifty Fifty.

 

And U.S. farmland had a bubble in the 80's as well I think.
