I know I don't have a ton of people that read this blog regularly but I like to think there are a few of you out there. So to those few, I've got a question:
How much would you pay for a genuine 102-year-old baseball card with a corner missing?
It seems that over the last few years I am buying all my baseball cards in a bubble. All I want are poor old baseball cards, the worse the better. And because of that I wonder whether the cards I am buying are worth it.
Of course they are worth it for personal reasons, but are they worth the money I am spending on them? Sometimes I wonder.
This card cost me $10 ($9 +$1 shipping on eBay).
A few other things you can buy for $10: A little more than two gallons of gas in California; lunch; a ticket to the movies.
When you compare it to some things, maybe a piece of Americana is worth a ten-spot.
