Craig Kerner is not like most baseball card collectors. He believes the value of a baseball card is not measured in dollars and cents, but by its value to the collector.He collects from the heart, and that has made all the difference in the world.In a market where greed has taken over and left the true hobbyist behind, Kerner refuses to change his ways. Manufacturers can print as many Jose Cansecos and Ken Griffeys as possible. Those cards won't catch Kerner's eyes."I just basically collect older cards from the '50s and early '60s," said Kerner.
