re: Evan Mathis sells a 1952 Mickey Mantle baseball card. Second highest sold baseball card. - Globetrotter747
[quote]Not a fan of Jack the Dripper, but some people are. I have no problem with that. [/quote] I don’t have a problem with it, either. Just pointing out that even more money is spent on other collectibles that don’t make a lot of sense to most people....

re: Evan Mathis sells a 1952 Mickey Mantle baseball card. Second highest sold baseball card. - Globetrotter747
[quote]I'll never understand how a baseball card goes for that much.[/quote] Look up Jackson Pollock. Some of his paintings go for 150 million or so and look like they were painted by a kindergarten class that slung paint everywhere. I am a big fan of art and have seen one of his paintings up ...

re: Is fan support overrated? - Globetrotter747
[quote]Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. [/quote] There are a lot of hidden truths. No one has figured out the identity of the Zodiac Killer, D.B. Cooper, or who has Rembrandt’s Storm on the Sea of Galilee. As for fan support, it is important to be in the to...

re: Going to Lucerne, Switz and the getting on a Rhine River cruise afterwards - Globetrotter747
[quote]Not sure how long you will be there, but it's an easy drive to Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald from there. Lauterbrunnen is like something out of a fairy tale and loaded with waterfalls. [/quote] Lauterbrunnen is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. [quote] The Swiss Fran...

[quote] We have concerns about the language barrier, currency issues etc...[/quote] Language barrier will not a problem. Currency won’t be problem either - just do the Euro to USD math in your head to figure an approximate cost for what you want to buy. Only thing to make sure of (and you probabl...

re: NYC hotel area recs? - Globetrotter747
[quote]I've read not to stay in Times Square. [/quote] I don’t see anything wrong with staying in Times Square. I have stayed there and elsewhere. TS has great access to the subway and some fun things to do, like Broadway theaters and comedy clubs. Could have a great view with the right room. ...

Looking For A TV - Globetrotter747
I am in the market for a new TV. I want a pretty big one (at least 60” but ideally 65”-70”) with a great picture. I would like to keep the price around $700-$750 but am willing to go higher if I really like it or I am getting a good deal. Also, if anyone could tell me any technical jargon to look fo...

re: Would I be in the minority thinking Dabo will never come to Alabama? - Globetrotter747
[quote]my god the pressure will be unreal[/quote] Depends on how you define pressure. Whoever replaces Saban will make more money than 99.9% of the world even if he never wins a game. Coaches at lower levels may not face the same fan and media scrutiny, but they also don’t have golden parachutes ...

[quote]Trotter, I know we've gone around about this on the SEC Rant OT a few times, but let me ask you an honest question: Why do you feel compelled to argue against someone's beliefs? [/quote] I will debate just about any topic. [quote] That’s a lot of time and effort to dispute something you...

[quote]Are you saying a basic value for life and morals are better or even as good today as they were 150 years ago? Things were not great or even good 150 years ago. They never have been and they never will be. But if your argument is things are as good or better morally than they were 150 years ag...

re: Alabama players prayed with/for our president - Globetrotter747
[quote]This is like that grey area I love to see people say about everything when it comes to right and wrong. "Who is to say cheating on your spouse is wrong?" Or "Who is to say killing a baby at 12 weeks old is wrong?" [/quote] I believe morality is an extension of our recognition that we are s...
