It's difficult to determine the value of Ripken merchandise
By Matthew Taylor
I thought that baseball memorabilia was supposed to become more valuable over time, but a visit to E-Bay suggests otherwise.
The Cal Ripken rookie card, which I have at home, is apparently worth much less than the 2,131 bobbleheads they distributed for free at the ballpark on Tuesday.
Three bobbleheads (1, 2, 3) have already been auctioned for $58, $61, and $66, respectively. Meanwhile, the rookie card, valued at less than $20 at the time of this posting, has a lot of catching up to do.
