Curious how many times everyone have stopped or thought about stopping. Collecting can be as bad a gambling sometimes worse for people.

once..and I was out for about 7 years

yea collecting got harder for me when I didn't have alot of money to spend on the hobby and it made me feel bad because for me it was as bad as gambling LOL but I stepped out of buying packs and buying cards I really only trade now so you can call that having one foot in and one foot out I can't help it but it's actually been good for me

Around 2006 because, Like others, i was playing MTG also. I also was 14, so I didnt have complete interest in Pro sports that much. I also didnt have anyone that i could afford that i liked then. Andruw Jones was HOT HOT HOT then and Peyton was HOT HOT HOT then. I have recently gotten some funds in and been able to collect.

Twice, but the second go around, I got back in to sell most of my collection off.

From about 2000-05...then I found internet trading sites and got a little more interested...the last year or so, I have really picked it up...and a lot of thanks to TCC smile.gif

I stopped about 12 years ago, got back in about 4 or 5 years ago but then backed out again a couple of years after that. If I have a spare 20-30 bucks now I might go to sportlots and grab a bunch of commons I need. My problem is that of the 800 or so different Favres and the couple of thousand other Packers I have to trade, they are low end stuff and no one wants them. I've always been into the memorabilia though. I spend way to much on that stuff.
2000 rushing yards
Never have really, i've slowed down though (now including). I bend but don't break
Deltapine
Totally quit in the late 90's, started back around 2004. Stalled in 2006 and refocused early this year.

I stop every summer. Only once before that did I stop outside of summer since 1996, kids have that effect I guess...
