Once in the Hall
Once in the Hall of Fame...doest that person's cards usually rise in value. I ask because I just bought about 12 packs of spx from 1992 on ebay for $10...and in it I had a dual game worn uniform card with AROD and Jeff Bagwell....and as much as I hate AROD...I think Bagwell deserves a spot in the hall for sure. Just wondering if I should hang on to this card if the value is going to rise...or dump it off.

Always collection Cal Ripken, Manny Machado, Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne, Justin Morneau, and other rare Colts and Orioles cards.

RE: Once in the Hall
This isn't generally as true as you would think. Guys tend to have a small boost in sales when they near HOF induction or when they are actually enshrined. However, the book generally doesn't reflect that because the boost in sales in temporary. I actually think to an extent it is just the opposite. Once a guy retires his cards tend to fall off a bit. I think that collectors like the NOW. They like to chase cards of guys who they can watch. I do think that a HOFer or any former star (legend) grained value after his/her death. This is largely noticed in autographs. This of course being because the person will be no longer signing.

Just my opinion!
