I saw a similar topic on a different board, and I'm eager to hear responses from fellow TCCers.

What do you enjoy the most about this hobby?

For me, it's the thrill of getting a nice pack pull and interacting with other collectors.

a few of my favorite things...

"Raindrops on roses..." NO NO NO NO!!

tongue.gif laugh.gif dry.gif

5. Going thru a box of commons from 04-05 and finding 3 Carey Price rookies!

4. Buying a Box/opening it and getting the EXACT card i wanted!

3. Trading for the exact card I wanted no matter what the cost!

2. Completing a set!

and the number 1 reason I love this hobby..

It is a way to "touch" my great passion for sports and interact with a community of similar minded individuals. It is my #1 leisure time activity.. kind of my "Calgon take me away moment" ! rolleyes.gif wink.gif
