The Baseball Card Movie That Will Seriously Bring On Depression

Thursday, May 14, 2009

I recently started getting back into collecting cards again after getting a box for Christmas, and I can't say how bad of an idea it was to do so. Sure you feel some nostalgia when opening the packs, but the insert cards, autographs, jerseys and random subsets, just make it impossible to keep up with. Well thanks to the Big League Stew, we now have a look into the life of a collector nowadays.

Joe Rock runs the Baseball Card Dugout in Brooklyn, and Director Casimir Nozkowski decided to make a mini movie about the business....

The part that got me, was not the over-the-top prices, but rather the simple phrase of "it's not for kids anymore" that was said about five times in a ten second span. If you'll excuse me, I have to go cry while laying on top of my complete set of 1992 Fleer Ultra Rookie Sensations.

Oh pretty little Juan Guzman...your borders are so blue. And's Scott Leius. And there's O's sensation Chito Martinez. Sigh.

I will stick with my Expos cards. Not because I expect to make money, but because they always take me back to my youth.

I was a sucker to those card packages filled with fake Mickey Mantle autographs and Brooks Kieschnick rookies on the Shop At Home Network. If I see Don West in the street, I'm gonna kick his ass.

Baseball Cards weren't for kids in 1993.

I see your Brien Taylor and David Nied cards and raise you a Todd Van Poppel.

I enjoyed the little movie. I used to be HUGE into cards in my youth and still once in awhile when I'm at Target can't resist and buy a pack or two.
