I;m not sure that I agree with tihs assessment. I am just a ML lover, not a
REAL collector. That said, I still regularly buy ML books for a dollar
apiece, or thereabouts. In fact, I periodically cull the herd by selling off
my doubles. There is something happening though, I've noticed that lately I
can't sell any of these beginner quality copies, not even at a dollar
Only real collectors are buying, and they don't want the commons in used
condition that I sell.

All the aspects Joe mentions about older people collecting is probably
But something else has happened : Some years ago many ML were visible on
shelves of the average store. You could pick a copy up for a few dollars.
When you had forty or fifty you were hooked: you wanted the more difficult
to find. Now few people can begin their collection without having to pay
real money, so collecting never gets off the ground.
