When I read this article two things came to mind:
1) This may be true but high end stuff will get you a higher dollar return
in the long run. But these ex to ex/mt cards are nice. And I once in
a blue moon buy one that's not part of my main collection.
2) I wondered about the timing of this article. Did Joe Orlando write
this to encourage more submissions of lower grade material? I
wouldn't be surprised. A good marketing ploy. In many cases,
long term low end cards will make a poor investment.
