The world's most trusted source in collecting

I mean if you've been a huge collector of AROD, JETER, GRIFFEY,RIPKEN, KOBE, etc...why would a record of 5-2 record from a rookie be worth more than any of these Hall of Famers cards.
They shouldn't be unless its an autograph or relic, something along those lines.
Seeing the collector drop $1000's on a simple 2010 ROOKIE card, come on...
I believe we're starting to loose sight of what card collecting is...
Shouldn't we look to go back to basing the cards price on what kind of numbers the guy puts up instead of simple overhype (or the fact it has an autograph or serial number). I'm all for the new wave of auto's, relics, patches, I believe all of these things bring a new fun part to collecting.
But overpricing BASIC rookie
cards more than Hall of Famers just doesn't make sense.
Just a thought
