the whole card grading thing is such a scam :-P Employees/friends shave corners, give higher grades, sell, share profits :-t

It is a nice card though :-b

Card collecting has really gone down hill, IMO. It used to be that the best players in the league had the most valuable cards. Now it is just which specific card is "Hot"......doesn't have much to do with the player as just which card is most popular at the moment. Then when that popularity falls so does the value. Back in the day the most valuable cards, best players, kept their value or even continued to go up if it looked like they were headed for the HOF. It seems like the stock market anymore....things rise and fall, rise and fall. I'd probably still collect cards if it never really changed but I haven't for quite some time now....though I do still have all my cards downstairs somewhere! ;-D

The three greatest cards made while I was collecting:

A friend of my dad's gave me a bunch of 1968 Topps cards when I was really into collecting. Of course he had pulled the Mantle/Ryan/Bench/any other high value card. But I did have a Gil Hodges and Harmon Killebrew.

I have a pretty good collection. I stopped collecting a while ago, but I have a few binders full.

My dad always jokes about how he threw away thousands of dollars putting what would be valuable cards now in his bike spokes, and flipping them against the wall.
