Any fellow card collectors on here ???

Run into some old friends from another group or board? Want to do a little schmoozing, talk over old times? Or just some off topic stuff, then this is the place.

Collected when I was younger. Still have a bunch I would gladly get rid of.

i was a teenager in the late 80s early 90s when card collecting was huge. i had so many "hot" cards back in the day that i just knew would make me rich one day. most of those today are worth about a buck on a good day. i still grab a pack from time to time to see if i get any of my favorites, but i pretty much got over the whole thing a long time ago.

I collected cards then too. The cards might be worth something one day but it will be quite a while. The cards have to actually become rare to be worth anything and there are still too many around. Maybe in 50 more years. Considering the rate they were made they may never be rare lol

The only things these days if any value seem to be the hype jobs or big rookies. I only really collect the autographs :v):

Did hit a Brady flawless auto the other week tho, biggest card I will ever hit in my lifetime shame that I dont like him haha

Ebay was a big price discovery mechanism and destroyer of card "worth." Everyone flooded the market and suddenly there was realization that there were a lot more Barry Sanders rookie cards out there than previously thought. And the price plummets to 10 bucks.

Very true.
I was huge in baseball cards growing up. I have many, many, many original rookie cards from late 80s and early-mid 90s. Griffey, Biggio, Ryan, Ripken, Sosa, etc. Not sure what they're worth, but doubt it is much.

Ponder ..coming out if college looked legit...he did ESPN sport science show and
Looked accurate and strong on his throws.. He scored almost a 40 on his wonderlic
test. I am not sure if the game was to big for him or getting thrown in to early killed
his game. I know he went through some bad coaches. I don't if there was another
VIKING player that inspired more swearing...the fans booed him pretty bad
