I would say that if youre a baseball collector and you want good investments, don't go with pitchers. Very few of them every pan out and hold their value. For every Clemens and Ryan, there are 20 Scott Ericksons and Tom Gordons. Even future HOF pitchers like Maddux aren't very expensive. So I would say that the hot rookie pitchers of today, like Prior, etc. will fall in value.

Modern cards are a bad investment. Period.




Not all. I collect unreleased cards (cards that slipped into packs). those are always rare and never have a book value.

The problem with newer cards is that they are overpriced when they are released with no room to increase in value. So, if you were wanting to build a nice stable collection, if you pull a "Hot" RC, sell it immediately and then buy some vintage. You will be able to get that same "former" hot rc for 10-20% of what they are selling for 1-2 years down the line.
