Are baseball cards going to come back in value?

A loss of interest in collecting baseball cards began in he '90s when the market was saturated with confusing excessive card types. As the early baby boomers start to die off in coming years, there will be fewer buyers for classic cards of the '50s and '60s. However, these cards will soon become antiques. Those in good condition are also rare. All that's needed is an increase in demand. Will this be created by a renewed interest in collectibles of all types? That last happened in the late '70s when monetary inflation exploded from expansionary credit policy of the Federal Reserve. Actions of the Fed have been recently similar. If cash begins to quickly lose value, holding collectibles will become popular again. Should this happen, will baseball cards participate in the economic process? Should you hold on to your cards? Should you buy cards now while they are cheap?

I htink your older baseball cards are the ones to keep your eyes on. In todays market with the capability to make so many cards the market is flooded with any kind of card you can imagine. The basic card company in the 60's and 70's were topps and fleer and donruss. These cards wre simple but there wasn't produced in the numbers they are today. Besides you don't know what to collect with all the inserts and chase sets they have today. I am 50 years old and still holding on to some of my 60's baseball cards would not sell them for anything. They will belong to my first grandson someday who is now only 5. When he grows up enough to know what he has their his. thanks for the discussion and good day!!!
