    I haven't really done anything beyond using a nylon to reduce the wax stain on a card. As far as beaters, I think the wear and tear is part of their history, so I don't mess with it.

    I have the Twins in 1987 and 1991, thankfully. Other than that, the Vikings, 0-4 in Super Bowl and that 1998 season where our only missed field Goal all season kept us from the Super Bowl, the...

    Overpriced? I'd be tempted to go with 2000 Topps Cabrera autograph, Ryan rookie type $ for a card you had a 1:80 chance of pulling each time you open a set, and there are still plenty of sets to...

    The Patriots. They've won 1 in the last 10, the Giants have 2, but the Patriots won 2 of the last 3 before that. I'd rather have the chance every year, because sports are NOT hypothetical, so I'd...

    Sure, but it's just as possible to win seven World Series as it is one in that time span. In the hypothetical world, any outcome is possible.

    I'm honestly asking, what kind of criteria are you looking at in terms of a card being overrated? From your original post and the follow up all I can see is 'I think Nolan Ryan is overrated and his...

    Again, I'm not sure how to define overrated. If all you are looking for is overpriced for how easy it is to find, pick any HOF rookie since about the beginning of sports cards, pick any current...

    It's because at least you have the CHANCE, and in sports there are no guarantees. We've all seen the teams that limp into the playoffs and win it or go very deep. Repost your question as 'without...

    Tony, depends on demand. Do you know more people who collect HOF'ers and vintage cards, or more Neil Walker collectors? There is a LOT more demand for a T-206 Wagner than there is for a printing...

    Define overrated. The price on the Ryan is simply demand, nothing to do with how hard it is to find. There are many more collectors of Nolan Ryan than there are Johnny Bench. Rule #1 in baseball...

    I see a fair amount of dealers at our local shows selling for $1/per, so it's probably still in that area. I know that's about as much as I'd pay for most Gu and many autos

    It's a bunch of short series, with plenty of off days, anything can happen. How did the Twins win in '87, or the Cardinals in '06?

    Keep in mind, playing card type issues often grade higher due to the rounded 'corners' being less susceptible to wear. People may not be aware of how scarce they are in any form, thus demand may be...

    I'd vote Alston over Lasorda, and agree with adding Scully, though I might make some kind of 'voice of the Dodgers' display vs a jersey for that. I think it'd be tough to leave out the longest...

    I would guess it would still end where it did, though if I were looking at it from the sellers vantage point, I can see the logic behind not doing it.
