Yeah, we know. But we're collectors. And we don't care.

You know that one friend you have, that one friend who got out of The Hobby about fifteen years ago.

That one friend who's getting back into The Hobby.

That one friend who just discovered that stack of 1990 Upper Deck Juan Bell cards that he stashed away in the back of his parent's attic.

That one friend who can't comprehend that that stack of 1990 Juan Bell cards aren't worth anything, to anybody, anymore.

This blog entry is a few months old, but I've only discovered it now.

You might want to share this with that friend you have who still insists that that stack of 1990 Upper Deck Juan Bell cards he's stashed in his parent's attic for 18 years are still worth something.

Then, after you've shared this blog entry, buy him a pack of 2008 Topps.

Couldn't agree more with the article. The late 80's and early 90's issues are like pennies, everyone has some laying around the house but no-one really wants them.

There is some hope however, that is if we can get the Chinese into baseball and they want to start collecting cards, we could send some over there.....they may hve the population to soak up some of the overproduced cards.....

I want to know who that anonymous guy is who thinks the 80's cards will appreciate. I have 10 5000 count boxes of crap I'd be willing to sell for a song.
