I am a reckless person :: July 24th, 2007

comic strip lol
(first) < PREV next > (latest)

There’s something that someone asked me when they first saw the site:

“I know baseball cards don’t have half the liquid value they used to, but admit it: you run through a Beckett’s pricing guide before destroying one, don’t you?”

I, uh, totally don’t.  I suppose I might pause a little if I ever pull out the scissors and look at a card and find myself thinking “man, isn’t that guy famous?  And he looks so young!”  But, heck.  My dad has an old Sandy Koufax that’s worth a couple hundred — that’s a card.  This over-produced late-80s bike-spokes fodder?  Five bucks lost to an art project balances out just fine against the worry and research of vetting these things.

And what if I found a card that had just the perfect expression for a new strip, and it turned out it was worth ten or twenty bucks?  O dilemma!

So, to sum up: please send me email if you see a really valuable card has been cut up, so that I can feel like kind of an idiot.
