Based on the first Forbes article link, sports memorabilia is 13% of all Ebay sales, which calculates to $331 million. And of that, PWCC is grossing $60 million a year in sales! That means they are 18% of all Ebay sales of sports memorabilia. That's a pretty incredible number. No wonder they think they can dictate the rules we should be playing by related to baseball cards and create their own definitions we should all live by for what is "conservation" and what is "alteration".

I am turning into a total conspiracy theorist. When I see these two articles about card collecting a day apart from the same publications one Positive and the other one negative it just makes me wonder. Why? To report the news but cancel out the effect?

Nice to see Teddy Ballgame doing well in any event: one card sold and 15 searches per hour!

Hello again, guys,

One wonders if he's just not paying attention to all the news or whether, to use a wonderful phrase someone used yesterday, he's dug in like a tick and refuses to be swayed from his fanboy point of view.

They are from "contributors" not employees. There have been numerous scandals concerning contributing writers and internet media. Basically payola where they were selling mentions and links, if not entire articles to the companies they were writing about. Forbes was hit pretty hard by this a few years ago and I am assuming there are still some chickens that haven't come home to roost there yet.

I own an online business and my former SEO team tried selling me articles like the Forbes piece. It's kind of scammy.

Every day I get emails from companies (not Forbes) wanting to sell this forum "content", SEO services OR strike up some kind of partnership. I just say no.
