Default Forbes article

Very nice piece on Forbes and glad to say that we helped out Brent in this creation. He did all the hard work but we did provide the data.

Cool article about card prices and also confirms there was a "buyer group" that created a huge spike in prices of some cards.

Hopefully this thread gets moved to the main page to get more views.

I doubt that will happen...this thread got moved FROM the main page where it was originally placed. It was a cool article.

Didn't know it was moved here, can understand why though.

I wonder if the 36 DiMaggio is on that list of 500 cards?

What classifies as an “article” in the age of twitter continues to amaze me.

Brent lugs data the size of old phone book to NYC and gets 12 short paragraphs and a couple of charts, which is better than nothing, I suppose, but hardly a journalistic masterpiece.

I, therefore, propose a new term for iPhone and internet fodder, masquerading as news. Rather than call such snippets articles, anything that can be read in less than than minute shall now be called an “articlette”.

I do appreciate the topic being covered, but the size of the blanket is a bit disappointing.

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.
