Why when a famous player for example Duke Snider dies his cards go up in value or people put them up for crazy prices. There is the same amount of cards on the market before he died. I could understand his autograph going up in value because there wont be anymore added to the market place.

It is morbid but it will probably be the last time the player will get this much publicity. Most players get a bump in prices when they reach a milestone, retire, make the HOF, then die.

I think it also has something to do with the national media attention celebrity deaths get, gets a lot of people who would not normally buy out looking on ebay.
