I'm a vintage guy myself, most of my grading is from 69 and back but come on... There are plenty of great modern cards worth grading. I am personally not a fan of the new chase cards or the manufactured rarities but what's a 15 year old kid or maybe younger probably gonna collect? Cards of the guys they see play. It ain't there fault they never saw Aaron, Williams etc! I for one think encouraging younger collectors is the way to go. Slab that Trout rookie, just hope he's more of a Mantle clone than a Fred Lynn clone. Ol Fred had a monster rookie year and........ Well a decent career.
SmtJoy i think made a great point and I love the Goldschmidt auto, he has a deceiving amount of power. I follow baseball from A ball on. I go down to Surprise AZ for spring training almost every year. That is what got me collecting in the first place. Thanks for the advice and I do really like SGC after my first submission. I still cant believe they got my cards to me in the turn around time with all they went through.
