    Plus the first 18 games of 1995.

    Jeff Bagwell may not have won MVP. Didn't he get hit on the hand and broke a bone or something the last day? Bags was the unanimous MVP, but missing the last 2...

    I don't see how anyone could look at his stats as they stand today and not vote for him. Two more decent seasons place him at 3000/500, but even without round numbers he's got enough in those...

    How do you know this? I think it's the opposite, relative to 6-7 years ago. That's one reason for the price increases. Greater demand leads to greater prices. And when prices explode like they...

    Man, this would let me buy a couple cards I need for a set for a more reasonable price (still about 100% above what I want to pay), and the seller is on vacation! Not like a Probstein "vacation"...

    I don't see that it will crash. People have been saying that exact same thing for at least 15 years, and it has been on an upward angle continuously. A long decline, of which there is no evidence...

    All these millennials got rich off crypto and are binging on lambos and high-end modern cards. That's one theory.

    But yeah, whatever the reason, the cost of entry on top prospects has gone up a...

    That and lotteries only have 1 jackpot and a few various smaller prizes. I think the Texas lottery has about 9 different ways to win out of 3.8 billion number combinations, with the overall odds of...

    This is the third year they've done them, IIRC. I can't decide if I like them or not. It sounds like a dumb idea, but on the other hand, I would prefer them over most other forms of "player used"...

    I look at it like...while I may have sold some cards way too early, I still have my Hank Blalock RCs to comfort myself with.

    Good luck with that set. I bet it's tough adding to it at this point, but you never know.

    1955 Bowman is one of my alltime top 5 sets and I was really hoping they'd make the rare parallel...

    I don't know how old the kids were, but the league I played in when I was 9 didn't even allow steals. Stealing home like that just looks like a clueless kid being clueless.

    None of the shops I went to 25 years ago had any old wax. Of those 3, two are still around today, and it's still pretty much the same. Anything with any value at all has long since been sold.
