The Simpsons Get A Little Too Real About Baseball Card Collectors

I've been a fan of The Simpsons for as long as I can remember and a daily player of The Simpsons: Tapped Out mobile game for about three years. It's probably my favorite mobile game overall and the creators continue to update the game all the time. The game's most recent update includes the character Gummy Joe who has a game story line with him trying to sell chewing gum. He meets up with Comic Book Guy to sell his gum in trading cards at the Android's Dungeon when the game has some dialogue about the nature of baseball card collectors that maybe hits a little too close to home.

That does seem to be the prevailing public perception - however, I think we here in the blogging world understand that to be at least partially untrue. Personally, the word investment doesn't even cross my mind when picking up cards.
