  • Prices

    As a kid, I never really have much money. Most packs of cards (the good ones, at least) cost $2.99. The price is outrageous! Because of this, I don't buy too many packs of cards. I do pull together enough birthday money to get a complete set, though. What's up with the high prices?:noidea

    $2.99 / pack is about as cheap as packs come these days. Most cost about $4.99-$5.99.
    A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

      If Target stores in your area have the $1.99 packs of 2005 Topps Updates, it's not that difficult to pull an All-Star Stitches card
      Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

        Retail packs range from $0.99-$3.99 in the most part. Most are $1.99 or $2.99 still. I've pulled some great stuff out of those, including a Nolan Ryan Patch/100 that was worth $150 when I got it.

        I agree though, the hobby is getting pretty expensive, but there still are some good products that don't cost a fortune out there.
