It is beginning to seem as if it is true.

Somehow, I don't see Paps trading the 2007 WS ball for a Chris Young rookie card. :-D


Which only reinforces my original statement.
If it's obvious it's probably true.

Because it shouldn't be a big deal if he does.

There's exactly one ball. There are hundreds of over-printed or artificially underproduced rookie cards for each player out there.

I would be a big deal.

I think you are missing my point - the value of the ball shouldn't be viewed from a monetary standpoint but from it's 'emotional value' to an individual. Of course the last ball thrown in a World Series game will have more emotional value to most people. Especially if you played in the game. But, if you are a die hard Yankee fan, a Jeter rookie card might mean more too you and I can understand, and applaud, that sentiment (Even as a die hard Yankee hater).

Got it. And I think you will understand that saying "worth X dollars" is much easier than writing out a multi-sentence diatribe about the non-monetary value of a rarefied piece of nostalgia.

Before replying, bear in mind that I was talking to ACS. :-D
