"The Art of Collecting: Trading Cards and Sports Cards"

As a boy, ripping packs, mostly basketball, was a thrill. When I spent the night with friends, we would trade cards or just look through each other's binders. I collected all the big names of the 1980's and 90's. However, I never thought about keeping them sealed or grading them. That is exactly what must of us card collectors do now. That is what I want to sell. A single card doesn't hold financial value, except for the occasional big name rookie cards or astounding artwork of Pokémon, Yu-gi-oh and Dragon Ball S. Most do not have the demand or the reputation like a Michael Jordan in basketball or a Mewtwo in Pokémon. If you have kids, buy 2 boxes: one to rip and one to invest and hold on to. This is the best hobby in the world, ever since the baseball cards arrived in cigarette boxes in the 1920's. Want to retire early in life? Tell your son or daughter to hold onto that Umbreon V-Max alternate art or the Evolving Skies Booster Box for the next 40 years. If you're a sports card collector, don't even think about selling your Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady cards, rookies or not. I love this hobby and occasionally rip packs as well. I am not saying stop blowing through your money looking for the rarest modern card out there because it is thrilling to do that. Seal the deal eventually, pun intended. God Bless!
