Yes I collected them as a kid and yes all those valuable ones are long gone. Besides the Honus Wagner million dollar card and the Mantle rookie card...the last real famous card one appears to be Ken Griffey Jr's rookie card of 1989.
The Cubs may be headed for another disappointing playoff season. Clayton Kershaw performance reminds me of Orel Hershiser and the 1988 Dodgers team. His relief stint and 1-0 win.
