I like to know anyone’s opinion what if you were in my shoes? And is this a good idea to store my merchandise and sell in like 5 years liek asaving account instead of putting my liitle bit of money left after ills and eating to look out for myself in the future and for my girlfreind who works too. I spent over 1000 bucks in cards and autograpgh cards in the past 2 months ,a dn my girlfriend told me that was smart b/c the cards has abetter chance to make more money then leaving it in a CD in teh bank which the increase is hardly nothing buit liek an extra 200 bucks over timeand we were like wow, so we decided that this is our way so whats your takes please help? I’m not into stocks or gold but Sports is a rising topic in teh World and I feel that this was smart b/c stocks are not my risk and I do know who to buy and I;m investing in stars like Kobe, Randy Johnson,Greg Maddux,Lawarence Taylor, and Tiger woods and mostly Hall of Famers and hot baseball prospects so i know what i’m doing so was it smart?

Justin answers:

Cards unfortunately are only worth what a person will pay for it. Not what beckett says. I collect, but I dont look at it as an investment, but more of a hobby. I could probably sell my cards and get a nice lump of cash, but it would not be worth it to me, because I love my collection more than anyone.
