Irrational exuberance. Remember? That's how they described the economy under Bill Clinton. It looked like the stock market could keep going up with no ceiling, and people really believed it too. The baseball card market was a lot like that until this year. It was a time before a strike cancelled the World Series, before anyone was really thinking there was a drug that was causing the players to look like weightlifters with the mumps, before eBay demonstrated the laws of supply and demand. Ah, 1994. We thought we'd collect 2 of everything and be retired by now.
I still need 100 cards in this 792 cards set. 792? Who would have thought there were that many players in the majors? I guess that happens when you still include rookies.
