    I hate what they've done to this hobby.

    That's disgusting.

    And $12k-plus? Even worse.

    So, the dude spends $2,000 and pulls a card that has both Lincoln's and Washington's signatures. And the auction is only at $12,000 with less than a day left?

    Ummm, signed with what? Blood? Gold? Authenic sig from a collector?

    But isn't it a one of a kind card? If that's the case then it being slightly off-center is moot.

    Taking a card like this down a notch for being off center is like downgrading Cindy Crawford because of her mole.

    Blue font. Red font. Why must we segregate sarcasm to the colored fonts? Why should I be forced to look at the color and not the words? :p

    I said almost.

    That being said, I was pleased to see some stat projections estimating 82 wins this year. The pitching should be solid from 1-4. The question is: can they score enough?
