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.

Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.
Only one company has the right to make cards for baseball .........Should be at least two!! Best regards, David

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!!!
