    What are you talking about? That was post 4,201. Hope you've just got some weird auto-post algorithm working that needs to be tweaked.

    an incident came up today that make me think of this thread....

    not good that Ebay doesn't have a trading card expert.

    How stupid is it that you are looking at a unique card on ebay, don't bid or don't win it, and ebay spams you with a "sorry you didn't win ____ but are these of interest?" and they are nothing close to the card I was looking/bidding on. If Ebay had a trading card expert, the recommendations might be closer in interest instead of further away in interest than the card not won.

    I HATE those emails. I get enough notifications about items I'm actually watching but then I get notifications about crap I click on once just to research a set or something or to get clarification on what the item is. If I was genuinely interested I'd watch it

    How long have you been collecting? Try picking up a Griffey GU Jersey card from 1997 for what you think they might sell for..

    I get more email from ebay than any other spammer. I only havent changed settings for fear of missing out on ebay bucks offers

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Price Guides, plain and simple. Trading cards were once a toss in to sell other products and really had "no value" other than fun collectibles you got with a purchase of gum, tobacco or other. Eventually they stood on their own as a product, but it wasn't really until people started pricing up cards did the greed and craziness set in fully.

    I remember when a local shop wouldn't sell anything new until the guide came out with a price. Talk about stupid!!!
