What makes most collectibles rare is the fact that while they were around few if any people ever thought about collecting them for the long term. When the Gehrig rookie Exhibits came out in 1925, doubt any kid was walking around thinking "I want to preserve one of these because it will be worth a lot of money someday." Compare that with what's going on with Otani or Trout cards. People are hoarding them.

Same with autos Steve. Thurman Munson's auto is worth more than Ted Williams' or Mickey Mantle's. Why? Because it is far more rare. So what is the outlook on autos of a guy whose been sitting at a table signing stacks of cards for Topps or Pannini since he was 17 years old? I would bet that there are already several thousands more mike Trout autos (at age 26) out there than Thurman Munson autos (who died at age 32). Certainly on baseball cards. I will admit that I have no numbers to back up that theory, but I would bet I'm right.

Totally agree. With the exception of an untimely death or a guy who has a real issue with signing for some odd reason, modern era autographs are valuelesss in my opinion. Might give you a nice warm feeling to look at but not an asset to sell to anyone.

Ps. Want a Pete Rose? He’s sitting at a store in Vegas all day long waiting for someone to walk in and say hello.

Mantle signed a ton; certain auto’d cards of his are worth quite a bit. The people who own the supers and gold auto XRCs of the likes of Trout and any other future longterm stars are certainly holding assets. To try and lump all auto’d modern cards together is a bit supercilious. Just enjoy whatever you collect without looking down at other collectors and their choices. And if you’re going to insist on taking such pot shots, please consider augmenting/tempering the opinion you’re so quick to type with knowledge and experience in the area you are slighting.

I've been enjoying your comments on this thread. Keep 'em up! It's so elitist to look at pre-war/vintage as a higher standard of collecting that newer collectors should attain to. I really enjoy buying $40-50 boxes, opening them, then give the Orioles to my son and sell the rest. It's an enjoyment that pre-war can't provide for me. In my experience, modern collectors are very enthusiastic regarding vintage cards. Wish they were afforded the same respect.

Matty, lobbing potshots was not my goal. I expressed my opinion. Maybe it was right and maybe it was wrong. Just an opinion. Wasn't attacking anyone personally or what they want to collect. If it's wrong or stupid, people can call me on it. I thought that the whole idea of this board was to share information and different views.

You better nab that puppy. They don't get much more rare/hyped. I mean the seller says "RARER THAN PSA 10 OHTANI OR JUDGE ROOKIE." How could you go wrong?
