Of course "a pig is still a pig". Great work (as well as poor work) can be done using any medium. But, as traditional methods cede further space to digital, it becomes rarer, more alien, and (in the mind of the general public) more collectible. This will only increase as "idiot-proof" cameras, and better, cheaper, larger printers become available to the amateur user.
Quality issues being equal, people are drawn to things they find exotic. Analog has crossed over to the exotic.
There are reasons people buy antique dressers, or dressers made by an expert woodworker, rather than IKEA.
