    well I was taki apeek thru my old collection and I found a John Elway rookie card.
    man what a great investment I think I paid $0.50 for the pack of card his can in and 13 years later it's worth $140.00

    well that's all for today.

    John Elway sucks? Riiiiiiiiiiiiight...what rock have you been living under?

    On that note, the Red Sox are a bunch of cut-rate hacks who will never beat the Yanks in a playoff series, much less win a World Series. :p :lol:

    I think John Elway sucks because I have never like the Broncos, therefore I don't like Elway. Although I can admit he was a good QB. And about the Red Sox, they kick ass. If they had a big of a pay roll as the Yankees, maybe they could get alot more good players like the Yankess.

    Well, first you've gotta be a good team to justify the payroll. How many World Series did the Bombers win BEFORE they had the big payroll? And how many have the Sox won in the past, say, 80 years?

    No one can say that they are a bad team, not even you. And they have good players like Pedro Martinez and Manny Ramirez. Any team in the majors would do anything to get them. I can admit that there are teams better than the Red Sox, but I like the Red Sox the best, so I will keep saying good things about them.

    Well, while the Red Sox may have good players, the fact that they haven't won a World Series in almost a century doesn't say much for the team. Teams like the Yanks, Braves, etc that win World Seires many times over have players that come together as a team when it counts (i.e., the postseason) in order to finish correctly. Very similar to the Broncos of the 80's that kept making it to the postseason, only to fall short at the end. They had good players like Elway, but they didn't have a team like the one that crushed Green Bay and Atlanta in the late 90's.

    Well, maybe the Red Sox can overcome the same way the Broncos did, and work together as a team, and maybe win a World Series like the broncos won a Super Bowl. It is going to happen. Can you blame them that it is taking so long? They still have the curse of the Bambino.

    Don't blame crappy seasons (several of them) on a curse, that's the lamest excuse ever.

    Cards=retirement for some. My dad since I was around 7 has bought the upperdeck rookie set. He has ever year or rookie cards for around 15 years in upper deck so there are many many valuable cards in the sets. The only 2 cards I still own are a signed and authenticated Alex Rodriguez Rookie card, and a Drew Bledsoe Rookie card.

    Do you know how much the autographed rookie of A-Rod is worth. That would be sweet to have. I have a bunch of Kobe Bryant rookie cards, but I have no idea how much they are worth. I stopped collecting around 1998.

    After his sexual assault case, IF sometime happeneds, i'm sure the value of those card will double.

    Myself, I have a Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemeiux rookie cards, but I'm too lazy to pick up a beckett and check there values. Are there any sites online that list them?

    I am too lazy to go out and buy a Beckett myself. The other day, i went to Beckett.com and they make you pay like $4 a month to look up the card prices per sport. Other than that, I have not found a price guide online that is free. Congratulations on having a Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemiex rookie card. I bet they are pretty expensive.
