probably not as much. baseball has been on the decline as far as i can remember. kids these days have so many more comic-related cartoons and movies. i'd be worried about digital taking over print more than a complete lack of interest.

It could, if all we had was the front and back covers, and a character only "played" a couple years, maybe ten if we were lucky. I was into cards when I was younger, because I was into the sport. I played park district ball, and high school ball, and watched games religiously, but kids now only want to play on the computer and video games.

The stories of comics will always be important, and if we have good story-telling, the medium should continue.

When was the last time you saw a sports card movie? I think the hobbies are completely different and they have different drivers. I would consider pop culture of comics to be more relevant to books that are also pop culture/cult classics.

There are some comparisons that come out of that, but for the most part it's still apples to oranges. I do see that happening over the longer term, but comics aren't nearly as abundant as cards and have more appeal than just nostalgia.

When all of this...

is commonly stored and enjoyed on one of these...

it's probably going to impact both hoarding and back issue markets.

Boy that card show looked depressing! Think NYCC or SDCC will ever look like that?
