Whats interesting about the internet is that you have people from many countries having access to ebay and online card shops. I think knowing that makes sense that the internet is helping the hobby globally thrive with new collectors. On the other hand, I just recently bought an original bvg graded allen and ginter card on ebay for way less than I ever thought it would be. We are talking less than $200 dollars for baseball history dating back to 1887. The internet is helping collectors line their pockets with sweet deals but we must remember that the hobby is only as valuable as the amount buyers are willing to pay for cards. If everyone started to pay more, the hobby would be worth more, likewise paying less makes the hobby not worth as much.
