Hey now- I have it on good authority that gum was still good ten years later. Could ever claim that about potato chips, even the radioactive kind.

The downside though is that the chips come on one flavor (plain) and you accumulate way more than you can ever eat very very quickly. Plus the chips themselves constitute about 80% of the value of the thing you are buying, whereas bubble gum is more or less a freebie attached to the cards (or at last was back in the day). And gum doesn't take up anywhere near as much space!
Sean, do the cards come wrapped inside the bag? I hope so, otherwise staining would be an issue.

I couldn't disagree more. Their refusal to put a multiple thousand dollar card in a box to ship irritates me. Always a double mailer. I cringe when I see them. Terrible packaging IMO. I've Emailed them and they disagree.

I'd rather go to a card show than a broadway show.

I don't dream about having power or money or fame, I dream about having more cards.

I've asked my daughter to sprinkle some of my ashes at the National, wherever it may be.

I do like to do a modified "Happy Dance" kinda like the dance that Eddie Murphy did when speaking about Ice Cream on his comedy show "Raw"

Yes they put them in little packs that are attached to the outside of the bags like this, so the cards come stain free.

That was smart to do it that way. Too bad some of the other series we collect didn't do that...

As far as confessions, I feel like Good Morning Vietnam when I walk into my office each morning and sit down to "do" cards......whatever endeavor it might be....it's always fun.

Default No bigger thrill

There is nothing that I have been looking for in my life for over 20 years other than some items on my card and memorabilia want list.
Finding a card on it is as a bigger thrill than meeting the player on the card.
Going to a national after not going for a few years feels like a family reunion!

My name is Howard, I am a card collector.

I look at auctions all day. My fiancee likes to make fun of me by saying I'm addicted to online shopping. It's true though, I am.

I spend almost all of my free time scouring eBay and Auction Houses. I look forward to local card shows. The hobby has taken over everything else that I used to do with my free time. It's definitely an addiction, but I love it.
