Stephen Strasburg Hurt Again-Buy Cards for Love and Not Profit
Bryce Harper is probably the next big prospect. Will people go crazy spending money on his cards? I hope not. The odds of one of these prospects becoming great isn't that great. The Major Leagues are littered with the next Babe Ruth, Cy Young, Willie May and Mickey Mantle. Mark Prior, J.D. Drew, Kerry Wood, David Clyde, Brien Taylor, Tim Belcher, Alex Gordon and many many more.
If you are going to collect sports cards do it for love of collecting and not for profit. When a kid gets a card of a favorite player as long as his picture is on it the kid is happy. Why do we lose our innocence? It is the fan that creates the market. Create that market for the love of cards and not the love of profit.
