Speaking of Book Value

This video was posted on YouTube 9/7/2008.  I think this guy, and that lady from the other video should get married.  They have so much in common.

Those Aren’t Rookies – What The @#%!#

People need to do their research when buying cards, especially when you see them on HSN or QVC.  As you can see in the video below they try to pass off some cards as the true rookie card when they clearly aren’t.  Most of the cards in that video are inserts and are not true rookies.  The grading companies that are featured aren’t even that good.  WCG has been known for grading cards when they are fake and/or trimmed.  They will also give a Gem Mint 10 grade to anything that walks in the door.  Its true that some of these players cards sell into the hundreds but certainly not the ones they are selling.  The guy featured in the video use to be with a company called Scoreboard which doesn’t exist anymore.  Many of Scoreboard’s products had questionable authenticity as well.  He was always the guy in the background on the phone on those Shop at Home shows featuring Don West.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
