Hobby innovations?

A question for the group here: What innovations/evolutions are most necessary to advance or improve the card collecting hobby?

It feels like the hobby has remained largely unchanged for decades, with only the occasional evolution like the rise in prominence of relics, autographs, and chrome. But are further advancements necessary at this point? Whether it's changes to cards themselves and technology they incorporate (are we reaching a point where cards can incorporate video playback?), how they're bought and sold, etc. I'm curious what other collectors feel is needed in order to help the hobby thrive and be relevant for future generations.

Hobby good reads

It's time again to share a couple of worthwhile recent card stories!

First, Scott Powers and Jay Felicio at The Athletic on Connor Bedard rookie card hype (with some words from card collector Connor Bedard himself!): https://theathletic.com/5316172/2024/03/06/connor-bedard-upper-deck-young-guns-rookie-card/

And then Daniel Miller at the LA Times with the crazy story of a LeBron Upper Deck Exquisite rookie patch auto that was pulled from auction over questionable patch tampering claims: https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2024-03-14/la-lebron-card-spiegel-lawsuit
