If you are among the throng of modern era collectors who live for the rip, what is it that makes you buy one of the dozens of new sports card issues that hit the shelf each year? Is it the checklist? Is it the number of autographs per box? The number of cards per box? The most recognizable brand with the best history? The best relics from the ancient past?
