Default Will Aaron Judge Break Your Heart?

So much hate for the guy.

Did he kick your cat?
Steal your woman?

Did you sell too soon? #ProspectorsTears

Are you "priced out"? #AllOutOfAllowance

TBP, I'm glad you're carrying on the EMB legacy o' not taking things too seriously... there ain't many of us left. Firerunner, Tex, IronMonkey come to mind. BustinNut a wild card. D2R and metsplaya, and many other shenanigan studs long gone.

This land is surrounded by never-ending butthurt valleys...

To answer the OP....my only issue is passing over his cards in the bargain boxes over and over and over. Grrrr....but the guy is humble and seems like a good dude. Hard not to like what he has done for baseball and the hobby.

Most people are like me I think, like him but get tired about hearing the name. I mean the AJ thread has 322 pages or something insane. It's cool what he's doing but it does get annoying every at bat, every time he goes to the bathroom. But some people are definitely getting a little bent out of shape about it...

I'm not heavily invested in him but like you I only own:

2013 Bowman DP&P Paper base
2017 Heritage Austin/Judge
2017 Finest RC

I kind of fell into the Greg Bird hype to be honest. Oops. That's ok, though. I buy cards to collect, with a slight case of hoarding disease haha. Some day I will probably look at downsizing and using the funds to get some bigger dollar purchases.

There's nothing wrong with Judge, it's his overly sensitive supporters that are annoying.

I wouldn't give up on Greg Bird just yet.

And I hope Aaron Judge keeps mashing.

Yeah. I like what he's doing(and Bellinger) but I feel for the guys here who have way too much $$ invested in his cards at their peak value. I don't think there is much room for them to go up further, just down.

I agree. I hear of people selling their vintage collection to drop 20k on his stuff and I cringe.

On a positive for judge.

Take it from a life long Astros fan, people only troll when you are good. I went 5 years without anyone trolling. Judge is good. How good is the question. Is he Stanton/Dunn or something more special?

The hate comes with being a superstar. If you're not being talked about, you lose the hype, become irrelevant and prices will start to drop.

I'm sure Trevor Story broke more hearts since his prices will never bounce back. Judge just needs a good series and people will go crazy.
