There are a lot of things that are great about buying sports cards. First, you get a lot of what you need for a game in one swoop. Second, you’re getting a ton of cards that are sealed. Third, you can’t get these cards at the airport, plus you don’t have to throw them in the trash until June. Fourth, you can buy them online. But all of these are just great.
I think buying a bunch of sports cards is a great idea, but I think it is a terrible one. It is a bad idea because sports cards are an extremely easy way to get your hands on crappy cards. When you buy a bunch of crappy cards from the same company, it is virtually guaranteed that they will all be different. So if you get a bunch of crappy cards, it is extremely likely that they all have different cards that are bad.
Of course there is the problem that the same company that makes the dumbest basketball cards will make the dumbest cards for the dumbest sports. I don’t know about you, but I find that the more I spend on basketball cards the better the quality. I bought a few of these last year. I think one of the best cards I have ever bought is my 2010 Wizards of the Coast basketball. I think the quality is not as good as it was in the past.
The problem here is that each of the different basketball cards has different prices. So, for example, the high end, “super high end” card, has a price of $80. The “low end” card, priced at $10, has a price of $100 (for a card with a game of 64,000 points, which is what the “super high end” card cost).
Each year the Wizards of the Coast makes multiple cards in a particular card type in different sizes which means that the low end card also has a price. So, for example, the super high end card is priced at 80 and the low end price is 100, but the high end card has a price of 320 and the low end card is 160.
The “c” in card prices stands for cost. So if the low end card costs 10, then the high end card is priced at 80, and the super high end card is priced at 320, the super high end card is priced at 320, and the low end card is priced at 160. It’s easy to see why there are so many cards in each type.
Yes, it’s worth a lot. This is the reason why I can’t get away from a little bit of it, because I have no idea what it is and yet they make me feel like I’m paying for something. I’ve spent the last few years learning to deal with it, so to speak, and I’m really enjoying it.
I had a friend who was a professional poker player for many years and a lot of the time he just couldnt get the right kind of card. I mean in poker its like a game of ‘how fast can you think’ or ‘do you have the time to think’ or ‘who is better, you or me’. In sports, it’s a game of ‘how fast can you hit the mark’.
It’s very easy to get a certain player to stop hitting the mark. It’s much harder to stop someone who can’t see the mark.
Sports card deals have become more complicated since the advent of the internet. But the rise of on-line gambling and the growing popularity of sports card games has had the potential to cause card deals to become even more complicated and convoluted.
