    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 are, that attracts more people wanting to get in on it.

    If there were a lot fewer people, Topps wouldn't have increased the print runs on many products by 40% over 2 years ago. I agree that if people lose thousands on a rookie card, they might get turned off to the hobby. But that's always been the reason to nay-say prospecting in general.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases, and any Grady Sizemores I don't have

    I'm not a prospector, and I kind of hate it because it drives up the prices on most new release autographs to some degree. I don't see prospecting losing steam in the near future, maybe some day but I think for the next 5-10 years it's here to stay. I would prefer the hobby was collector driven with profits a tiny part of it but that just isn't how most things work.
