Default Who else killed their collectibility with a bad decision???

Seems to me Leíveon Bell just sank his career with how he handled himself this year. I donít mean he wonít have a productive career from here on out, but his departure from Pittsburgh should tank values on his stuff. I equate this in some sense with Cano bolting for Seattle a few years ago (and subsequently failing PED Test)...his stuff is worth a fraction of what it could/ should have been had he just stayed where he was. Am I off-base here? Who else made terrible career decisions???

Why would a player care one iota as to what his cards are worth?

Without a doubt, the biggest in sports has to be Pete Rose. I had a HUGE Pete Rose collection and took a killing on it when I sold it off back 30 years ago.

Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Jose Canseco, and just about everyone else I collected in the 1980's!

Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds in the sense that they should both have an extremely wide collecting base and have diminished that materially by the PED scandals.

They probably don't and that's not the question being posed here. OP is asking us to recall situations where a player's collectible value plummeted.

Like Josh Hamilton and Jose Fernandez (RIP), for example.

The only question I have with regard to Bell is why he should be allowed to become a free agent next year when he has failed to abide by the contractual terms in the collective bargaining agreement with Pittsburgh. Given that is the extent of my knowledge on the subject--there may be something else in the agreement which specifically allows for free agency in such circumstances, but barring that, it seems to me as a lawyer that he would owe the Steelers a season under the terms agreed upon between owners and union before he can become a free agent.

Just sayin',

Larry

Default PEDs

Sammy Sosa, Mark McGuire, Barry Bonds, ARod, Clemens, etc. Do you remember when that comic book guy was paying hundreds of thousands (if not millions) for home run balls from these Hank Aaron & Babe Ruth wannabes? I wonder if my balls are worth more now.

And Lance Armstrong

I am not a pre war collector, but assume Joe Jackson cards are pricy today. Would they be worth more if he had not been banned and had his career shortened ?
