Agree the internet has changed things but this article simplifies the effect too much in my opinion.

I would disagree that pricing for all collectibles is readily available and makes it more difficult to get good deals. While true for mainstream cards, pricing data for obscure sets and other types of memorabilia like programs, tickets, photos, etc. is often very hard to find. Also, many memorabilia items on ebay are still either misclassified or misidentified and you can get some really good deals if you have done your research.

You can also get good deals on mainstream items if you are patient. If you look at VCP, you will see that prices swing pretty substantially on most items within a year window. Bargains are available if you are willing to keep trying and not jump at the first auction that comes up.
