I quit collecting mainly because of the strike in '94. But I was beginning to get turned off with all these damn sub-sets being inserted, couldn't keep track of them all. The companies and MLB only care about the $$$$ and not the hobby anymore.
On a side note, I would be SUPER PISSED if I pulled a baseball card of this guy:http://www.upperdeck.com/marketing/news ... x?aid=5141
Not that I don't like the guy, but I buy baseball cards for baseball players (or other sports for that matter), not to get cards of politicians or celebrities.
2008 Upper Deck "A Piece of History"
Pulled a Mike Myers movie worn blue pants card from when he filmed "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery".
In a box of baseball cards.
Not that I don't like Mike Myers or Austin Powers (both are cool in my book), but I didn't buy the box in hopes of getting some sort of Hollywood memoribilia.
Seeing presidential autographs and stuff out there too. Not really a fan of non-baseball related inserts in baseball card boxes. Must be popular though, as it seems more and more odd things are being put in there.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
