If you're new, Subscribe! → [ ] Oh they days of collecting and trading baseball cards in my youth. I remember them well, and wish I knew then what I know now. Why? Because I would have sold them all as a kid and collected a nice chunk of change. Actually, I would have had a ball of cash! Most of those cards from my childhood - late 80's through the 90's - are barely worth the cardboard they're printed on today. Heck, 20 years ago I could get twice as much, if not more, for the cards from that era that actually do have some value. Threw the years I wondered how the hobby was able to still survive. These things are worthless right? Well, what I didn't know is that there's a new approach to card printing. The cards aren't produced in bulk anymore. At least not to the extend they were when I was a kid. Instead of card companies printing, literally, millions of the same card. They offer 'limited' print runs.
