When showing your cards to someone. Do you start from your earliest dated cards and move up to the most current dated? Or do you do the opposite and work your way back into time?

Or maybe your cards are put together by team? Or in a different unmentioned way? Please share.

I like to put my cards in piles of 52 and throw them in the air, yelling, "52 CARD PICKUP!"

As they pick them up, that's the order in which they see them. :D


In all seriousness, I need to reorganize my HoF PC, but in the future they will view them by era.

I go from earliest cards usually but sometimes I put them in ACC order. It just depends on how I feel. Here is the first "card" on my website, though it's really a photo...well, a tin one, but one nonetheless.

It depends on who I'm showing them to and why. The one time I put much effort onto it one of my friends asked why I collected them. I put a handful in order by decade, and explained how the design of the card reflected the time it was created in what made it special, how the player was portrayed, etc. They really understood after, so I mush have got it right.

The rest have been answers to more direct questions, like do you have Yaz rookie card?, or do you have a Ty Cobb card? Those are lots simpler.

Instead of using cheesy pickup lines :cool: I now take a few graded cards out to the bars on Friday and Saturday nights :D and show them to hot chicks to try and close the deal. :eek:

I wonder what it would be like to have someone actually interested in looking at my cards.

I am showing the cards to my nephew, he's a top talent 11 year old ball player in Florida.

Last year I gave him a 1970 Rollie Fingers card and he lit up with shear excitement.

I feel it is our duty as vintage baseball fans and memorabilia collectors to introduce our interest to the younger generation. I plan to not only just show my cards to my nephew, but to spend an evening educating him on the rich history of baseball that the cards represent. I have over 130 HOF player cards to show him, so it should be a pretty thorough lesson .. LOL.
