No one is telling you how to collect. We are merely saying that manufactured rarity is a marketing scam. If you and your nerdy friends buy into it more power to you. So you can call me General Zod all you want to. You can pull your handshake back too. Do you feel better now? I wish you and all of your nerdy friends the best of luck in your collecting. You seem like a real happy guy.

We hang out down by the rock fence and our friend Jerry once even took a drag of a cigarette so you know we mean business. Also, from now on, you have to call Leon "General Zod" from now on and you have to call Clyde "Golden Eagle Fang Warrior."

You can't see but I just stuck my hand out to shake yours and then pulled it back before you could touch it.

No, you're not telling anyone how to collect, you're simply telling people that the way they choose to collect is less legitimate than the way you choose to collect. We're grown men collecting baseball cards; anyone that believes there's a hierarchy or scale of legitimacy has delusions of grandeur.

Apparently, you have a difficult time understanding the concept of a discussion of a rare card that wasn't made to be rare versus one that was manufactured that way to begin with. If that is what you want to collect it is legitimate, have at it and have fun. I am happy to help you understand my real view each time.

Please explain how it is a empirical scam and not just your opinion.

Have fun collecting whatever you want to, I am back to the vintage side. Good luck in the quest.

BTW, in retrospect, "Scam" was not a good word for me to use to describe the rarity. It is fully transparent and is not a scam in any sort of way, actually. It is the marketing I don't care for, I guess....but again, if folks enjoy it I think it's great (seriously). And there were these kinds of situations in earlier vintage too ie...1933 Lajoie. and others.

My apologies to the OP and everyone reading the thread. I can't stand message board drama but if there's one thing that I can't stand even more than that is someone making fun of a collector for who/what/how/why they collect. This was even more bizarre than usual as the person believed it was somehow a proven fact and not his opinion.

The irony is that he collects prewar, where thousands upon thousands of dollars are the difference because they spelled the player's last name wrong or the ad on the back is different or, the ultimate, the card is severely miscut or there's a severe print defect. It's all the same, folks. There's no such thing as earned rarity when another find could be right around the corner.

But really, it's just about civility. How much of an elitist snob do you have to be to just walk right into a situation blind and crap all over what someone else collects? Talk about a grossly distorted sense of self-importance.

Again? Really? No one is telling anyone what or how to collect.. We were having a discussion about regular rarity and manufactured rarity (it is still manufactured rarity whether you think so or not.) Where does anyone tell anyone how to collect? I suggest you take some reading comprehension classes and study hard because you can't comprehend that no one is being elitist except you. All in your head, made up right here in front of our eyes. It is people like you that conjure up a whole lot of imaginary stuff so you can feel like you are protecting others on the internet. Give me a break...
You are the one that is putting all of this BS out here, it is all in your imagination and not anyone else's. It is ALL YOU. I think you are living in Bizarro World .

Honestly, I see no differences between modern "intentional" rarities and some older ones like the 1933 Goudey Lajoie.
