    I agree this may be part of it - the player part.

    Another part of the equation is that the market itself - did the market in 2005 likely overemphasize or distort what future markets would be...

    I'm not trying to be one. You're strictly talking about a niche in all your posts that relies on MLB logos, you say you rely on logos as well. Further you say that if your niche didn't have MLB...

    What's the difference between a niche and a manufacturer?

    I've no idea what you're talking about here (or in most of your other posts honestly, I don't think I'm alone LOL). However you just agreed with me here in red. I'm not so sure you understand the...

    Right now in his career he may not be overrated career-wise. Baseball-reference has him being most similar to the following batters at age 19:


    George Davis (930) *
    Mel Ott (928) *
    Al...

    No, you introduced the idea of a poll which is a commonly used marketing technique necessary for specific niches, ones you're obviously immersed in. A poll is otherwise unimportant in the context of...

    Interesting you say poll... as a poll is a marketing tool (like a logo). Like logos, marketing is also indispensable to some hobby niches but not all. Naturally, people who are disproportionately...

    No, some niches - no matter the manufacturer making them - would exist today on anything resembling a meaningful scale without MLB logos and licensing.

    However baseball cards would certainly...

    I just saw he's .172/.270/.276 versus lefties this season - which led him to be benched today against Bumgarner. I had no idea he was having such a hard time against lefties.

    He'll need at least some time to adjust to being in a better, or even normal, situation.

    The bad part is that having seasons like this, no matter why or for what reasons, won't help his legacy. ...

    Part of the beauty of these cards is that being completely unannounced, these cards were not owed to anyone.

    Good for him, he did pretty well for the Ducks.

    One aspect/niche of the hobby seemingly exists only because of logos... thus the hoopla from this group who try to apply it to niches beyond their own in order to emphasize its importance.
  15. Hmm, sounds like a code.

    Anyone who gets Ginter understands that some people unknowingly threw cards away only adds to the Ginter intrigue.

    Nobody got shorted or hurt so it's all good. The fact that the set has some...

    Anyone who thinks this idea is dumb just doesn't get Ginter.

    I agree many people don't realize Topps has them by a string, Topps helped create an environment that perpetuates both greed and gluttony.

    Regular people who both buy and sell contribute to the...

    LOL this is funny. I suppose that's what happens when one doesn't "sell high" or doesn't need to. He wasn't really a prospector because he generally didn't sell if I recall.

    He also bought a...

    No, it's only a black and white issue if you know who used and when... but maybe you know who used and when?

    Cards are supposed to bring one "closer to the game and its players", but pack-pulled can never get someone closer to a player than an IP auto.

    Yes, I agree it could, but the nice thing for him is that its lots of free press for him.

    I've nothing against him, I liked him as a player.

    Steroid use is too complicated to be an entirely black and white issue.
