You can plan all you want. The fact is there are many 60 plus collectors, boomers if you will, who won't be around. I will turn 60 in 2045. If my parents are around they'll be nearly 100, as will the rest of their generation. Collections will be long gone by that point. And that's when you'll need this tech kid to buy your cards.

You're correct Frank, it's all about the slab. It's the single most important innovation to our hobby since its popularity grew in the 1970's.

I won't need the tech kid. All my key pre-war cards (Cobb, Wagner, Ruth, etc.) are in the VG range and all my mid-50's star RC's are in mid-grade 5-6 range. All I need is two guys who'd like to own a nice presentable piece of history. I'm pretty sure they'll be around, and this is coming from a 43-year old guy who doesn't even watch modern baseball

I sincerely hope you're right. I have a stake in that future too. I'm just more pessimistic.

Smalls: I was gonna put the ball back.

Squints: But it was signed by Babe Ruth!

Smalls: Yeah, you keep telling me that! Who is she?

Ham Porter: WHAT? WHAT?

Kenny: The sultan of swat!

Bertram: The king of crash!

Timmy: The colossus of clout!

Tommy: The colossus of clout!

All: BABE RUTH!

Ham Porter: THE GREAT BAMBINO!

Smalls: Oh my god! You mean that's the same guy?

All: YES!

Benny Rodriguez: Smalls, Babe Ruth is the greatest baseball player that ever lived. People say he was less than a god but more than a man. You know, like Hercules or something. That ball you just aced to The Beast is worth, well, more than your whole life.

Smalls: [Falls to the ground and clutches his stomach, groaning] I don't feel so good.

All: [Fanning Scott with their caps] Give him air, give him air.

If this bothers you so much, maybe you should sell your collection and enjoy your life. Or buy art. For me, I enjoy cards. I have had far more ups than downs. I try to learn from my mistakes. I am content with how I am collecting. If I wasn't, I would sell out. Life is too short.

I have no idea where this comment comes from or what it means. This is a discussion about the future. When did I say I cared if the money dried up? I'm simply discussing what I think the future holds. My cards could fall to nothing and I'd be happy about it. I could then buy any card I want.

And for the last time, what does art have to do with baseball cards?

There's plenty of gold in high end electronics.
