I know this card is not worth much, but to me this card has more value than any other Sandberg autographs that I currently own. It was 26 years in the making when I first put that card in my wallet in my 9th grade Algebra class. I'll never forget that day and the joy I had when he signed it. And for good measure, he also signed a ball for me, so I also got a nice and clean autograph.

+1 The items that people get because they truly love them and don't care about the value are always the best.

I think the card and signature are very cool - most people on here are collectors at the very core, and not every autograph or card has to be about the value of the almighty buck attached to it.

There had to be more people thinking the same thing and good for you for being the first to actually post it for all to see. I expected the exact response you received. Although you simply shared your opinion and it was 180 degrees from the owners, you were still judged for it.

I agree as well and it isn't based on value in my eyes. I am one that would, without a 2nd thought, take that extreme the other way and have something so valuable signed that many would shudder just at the thought of it. I just always liked a nicer item for my collection and something that worn out would be a waste of a signature in my eyes, even if I had unlimited access to said signature.

I get how someone may have a sentimental attachment for an item like that, although I don't really get that either. I have never kept anything in my wallet for that long, let alone anything that wasn't needed in there. To each their own though and it makes for an interesting story.

my intention wasn't to bash at all. my most sentimental card is a 1989 donruss jose canseco 40/40 club or '89 score roger clemens, and although they're worthless i would never even consider dinging a corner or creasing it, maybe i'm just a condition freak.

to each their own tho, i never tell someone how to collect and i always find it funny when people ask what they should get next...if you don't know what you want and need other people's advice maybe it's time for a new hobby.
