Yes and no Wayne.
Cheaper now than it was a year ago, in most respects. Also depends on what you're going to collect.
Football is big bucks, notably four the variants from series 1, 2, 4, 5. Six and seven are relatively cheap.
Hockey is almost universally affordable now except for a few select pieces. The original series one repaints and the goalies from series one and two can be pricy. From series 3 on there is relatively little that is expensive. White Kovalchuk and Liberty Messier are a little more than average. Red Patrick Roy and white Messier from NHL5 are not cheap. Then there's the accursed 3rd jersey Patrick Roy from NHL6 that is absurd in price.
Baseball is cheap, save for a few retro pieces like Red Sox Clemens.
Basketball too is cheap, except for chase pieces of Carmelo Anthony (though I expect that will come down in price) and the Lebron James variant.
Let me know how I can be of service.
