    oh yeah, i forgot what conversations are like with you, its either your way or its some kind of attack. your desire to always be right gets in your way of even seeing when someone isnt disagreeing with you.

    Exactly. So many layers and the longer you go, the less winners.

    It's called prospecting for a reason.

    Haha, I was totally thinking this same exact thing reading the conversation.

    Cubs fans are always optimists when we see potential. Then we get nervous when things start really going well. The cards will probably be sold at a loss in the midst of an MVP season because in our guts, we will expect a career ending injury.

I'm trying to rack my brain for names but the last several big prospects that have panned out never sold at these prices before they were in the bigs (Trout, Kershaw, Pujols, Stanton). I keep hearing Trout as an example, but during his first season, you could get his Refractor RC/Auto for 10% of what Bryant is going for.

    Can someone name ONE prospect in the last 20 years, whose cards sold for ridiculous amounts of money, then maintained or gained value once they hit the majors. One?


    Has anyone been able to come up with ONE name from the last 20 years?

    The only name id think of is Arod, but I wasn't buying cards then so that could be off

    I also think that the internet has fueled all the crazy prices. EBay and instant highlights for every player leads to more excitement. Who would have been so excited about two spring training home runs before the internet?
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.
