I think the most important question of all is... if Mr. George Herman "Babe" Ruth were, in fact, around today:
- would he still sign free autographs?
- would he do card shows?
- and if so, how much would he charge for autographs?
- (and how much extra for large items, personalization/inscriptions, &c.?)
- Or would he just chuck it all and do a deal with Steiner or Upper Deck or someone like that?????
Of course, we do have to include csh19792001's various variables in the mix... can't ignore them, no way, no how, wouldn't be prudent...

An’ people ain’t too crazy about the idea of themselves not existing. - Harvey Pekar, “Short Weekend: A Story About the Cosmic and the Ordinary,” American Splendor #3, 1978.
