i remember when i used to collect cards when i was a kid thinking i was going to make big money someday. until you realize that nobody is ever going to buy them from you...or if they do it will be at a price not even close to what you think you should get.

i used to actually think i could get teh price Beckett said it was worth....then going to a store or convention trying to sell them and realized the dealers werent interested unless they could get it at like 20% of that price.

i had fun collecting, but if you think you are doing it to someday get rich its a pipe dream. so collect the cards you like just as a hobby...dont ever make desicions based on soem false sense of making actual money

haha. exactly.
Buy for yourself and what you like. If it happens to be worth something down the road, great. I figure that if any of my cards are worth anything in the future then it will go to my son or daughter.

One day I realized that I had cards of all three Howes the only year that they played together (Marty's only year in the NHL). Individually they are worth little but my wife took them and framed them for me for my birthday one year. Awesome present and it has been up in my office for years and is a great discussion piece. I posted a pic of it in the Hockey Cafe here. Still worth little but cool. So I would say get the one you like better and put it somewhere where you can look at it.
