So would this worth much in say 25 years?

  The complete set?  Maybe 10-15 bucks.  If there are any outstanding rookies that go on to incredible careers, their cards individually could wind up worth more than the entire set together.

The rookie cards are the winners. Lucky to get one that gives a good return.
I get a set every year for the grandson. Maybe he'll strike it rich.

Don't you mean 87-2000, Topps, Donruss, and Fleer?

The volumes of these things that get printed ensures none will ever be worth anything. They prey on people with selective memory bias who see stories about 1960s cards in the attic being worth thousands.

Less and less people care about baseball, more and more people buy and hold these sets assuming there will be a market.

There wont.

There are also dozens of companies that print cards now, further watering down the market. Aaron Judge has probably 15 to 20 "rookie" cards in 5 different variations.

Look at any Beckett and you'll see that almost no card printed since the 60s is worth more than a few bucks with a few exceptions. Kids are playing with phones and video games, not trading baseball cards with their friends and sticking them in bicycle spokes, so nearly every card printed will remain in circulation in mint status in perpetuity

  I spent most of my allowance on Gary Sheffield rookies.  Not doing too much better.  We should have bought a couple shares of Apple stock instead.

I wonder if the Yankees Judge is included?

Might be a good find if Judge was included.
