I really enjoy the nice people who try there best to help out a player collector with whether that be selling a card cheaper to them than someone else and etc...


Example, someone is getting in a Brady Quinn jumbo Auto/GU pull out from 07 Gridiron Gear, and they're selling it to me for $75 DLVD, when usually, those cards get listed on eBay with a BIN price of $120+.

It's been that way for a long time. sad.gif

I both enjoy and DON'T enjoy their being so many options for collecting - you can collect YOUR own way but it is hard to find the right "niche".

I've said it before, but it's great day when you find something you've been looking for for too long just staring up at you from the bin at the local show, and even better when it's a stack of that something biggrin.gif

Off the top of the dome, in no particular order:

1. On-card autographs are still in circulation.
2. The generosity of other collectors.
3. The interaction between collectors from different parts of the world.
4. A deeper appreciation for the sport and the athletes that play(ed) the game.

It keeps me young! I love looking at cards I got when I was a kid and said one day this will be worth a lot. Althought the Kevin Elster rookie card never panned out I still love looking at it and remembering when I got it.

What I enjoy the most is how autographs have become so common place that you can pretty much afford any auto card of a player other than the big ones like Ruth & Cobb. I for one love that the manufactures have done autographs of lesser known players that other wise woud be hard to get because the don' t do shows.

I also love how most collectors are ignoring 90's inserts. This has led me to coming to close to completing several sets that I may have never been able to otherwise.
