Baseball Card Collectors Strike Out

"Herbert Gin, who owns Cards and Comics Central in downtown San Francisco, sees it nearly every day. A guy comes into his store with a box of baseball cards he's been saving. He needs money and wants to cash in on his investment. "

"But in 9 out of 10 cases, Gin says, the cards are nearly worthless. "

"There are now a lot of guys right now looking at their collection, hoping to find a treasure chest,'' says Elon Werner, director of communications for Beckett Baseball magazine, which tracks card trends. "And instead they are finding Al Capone's vault." story here.
