Pennies on the dollar for what you paid for it. They will be worthless in the long run, the way any random jersey card or autograph card (which used to be worth huge money for random shmoes) used to be. Cards is now a fools game. And sorry, but no, there are not a million copies of Marcel Dionne`s rookie card bro. Maybe if you count the bike spoked ones that may as well be used as fire starter.
Like all other collectables designed to be a collectable, current day cards will have no value in the long term.
You find a fact, warp it, then make a conclusion. Once you warp a fact, it's no longer a fact. For example you talk about Doughty patch cards. Guess what, I collect Doughty but my focus is on RCs and maybe high end autos. I believe that patch cards are dubious in nature since no one can verify who's patch it really is. Is the patch Sidney Crosby? Or leftover Noah Welch? and they do make more and more patch cards. That's true. It's a fact. It's the same reason I won't shell big money for stick name plate cards...because every year that player could get other card like that.
But then you also say I collect patches without seeing my collection. And this your argument fails. You're so against card collecting that everything seems bad to you.
