If you wanted to expand this discussion beyond baseball, i think you have to include the sad story of Len Bias.
This is true. Bo Jackson was never a superb baseball player (much better FB player) so you can't really include him either. Alison still has a chance to do something. Josh Hamilton is really sad, I stopped collecting cards about 7 years ago, grabbed a couple of his Chrome RCs that were worth about $40 (I can't imagine they're worth more then a buck now). That was the exact reason I quit, prospect hype. HOF RCs were worth less then guys that COULD pan out. Oh, and I stopped collecting cause I was too old
