I enjoyed the '90s for the most part because of innovations in card making. They were still overprinted but contained some interest. Then Roids came along and Killed what was left of real Baseball.
There are still some nice '80s cards but I have a hard time forcing myself past about 1975 and a lot of that era was poorly printed, so I do single cards now or small lots I can look through.
We will probably see this current collecting bubble burst soon. The Player quality isn't there and no one really wants anything except Autos and Game Used. The drawback here is there is not enough interest in So-So players and the cost of Highend cards has reached the breaking point.
Lol, I'm happy collecting Vintage and still reading the Backs of cards...Mel
