I was a maniac about it as a kid
Were these Allen & Ginter packs? There was a thread the other day about them.
The price has gone up and up and up, and “the” Wagner was finally sold to Conservative political figure and Arizona Diamondbacks’ owner Ken Kendrick, who five years ago paid $2,800,000 for it.
Now comics...I have about 12 longboxes.
all but about .001 percent accumulated in the last 8 years.
And i meant i have part of the 1972 Topps set (The psychadelic set) not 1973...if anyone cares.
I think that if you are truly collecting these things to "make money" you probably can't without (a) already having a lot of money, [and?] (b) doing something shady or (c) dealing in very large volume.
And on the subject of grading, I could care less if the book i have is a 'reader'...as long as the cover is firmly attached.
That bubble popped long ago
i have a nice little bob gibson rookie card some guy gave me cuz he knows gibby is like one of my favorites ... i asked him why he'd give me something so valuable and he said it wasn't worth more than a buck cuz some guy had trimmed it. like i cared. i just love having it. baseball card collecting mania is one of those things i'll never understand, like gambling addiction. i know its real, i just don't get it.
I have the equivalent of about ... uh ... 50 of those, all but about .001 percent accumulated in the last 8 years.
That's pretty much a cry for help, I think.
I know some people say the rules are a lot more clearer now but I always found them perfectly fine back in the old days and I thought the cards were relatively well balanced*
Power creep killed off cards
Can you explain how the stack works again?
