Great thread. Baseball cards are not an investment, as many others have pointed out. it is a hobby. I collect strictly for enjoyment, and I care less if a card value drops or not. The only value of Beckett (that artificially jacks up prices to benefit dealers) is for trading cards to make sure your trade is fair and equal.

because it doesnt make sense to invest money into something that will yield no return. thats what the sportscard hobby has become. spending great deals of money on worthless cardboard.

I agree with don completely! Yhe young player stuff is what gets me more than anything. People invest a ton of money into said players, say "harper" for instance. I have seen his stuff sale for crazy amounts of money. WHat happens if he bombs or gets hurt? That $1500 investment just went down the drain. I am not in the hobby to make money but if i were graded vintage and HOF is where I would be! AS far as the value of the newer cards go i dont complain about stuff that goes on in the auction market ebay. I wish Johnny Benchs' newer stuff would drop in value so that i could own more!!!! LOL
