4000 bucks is a ton of money for a little piece of carboard.
when i was a kid my friends and i used to play this game where we would drop football and baseball cards from a second story balcony onto concrete. there would be a couple of people on the ground below fighting to pick up these cards after they dropped.
those cards got killed.
dented, mangled, scrapped and ripped
the scary thing is this was in the early 80's..and we probably had some 70s cards in there.
we also used to use these cards to duct tape them to our bike tires to make them sound like motorcycles
i wonder how many montana and marino rookies i runied for 5 minutes of noise making
