i really was into baseball cards as a kid, i went and bought a beckett a while back. now that i can afford to i have been tossing around the thought of starting collecting them again (baseball cards, not becketts).
You don't have to earn my respect, you have to earn my disrespect.
Did you find a crack head needing a fix? All of those cards are worth more than $25 by themselves. Hook me up with some Arod rookies for $5 each
Lately, I only buy single cards if they're graded (usually 10s, but I'll take an occasional 9 or 9.5 if it's something I just have to have). This guys sold all these cards to me on Ebay in one auction. As soon as I saw the "Buy it Now" at 24.95, I took it. It happens every now and then, but not too often. Most of what I have is from childhood. I still have tons of unopened complete sets and individual packages. There was a thread somewhere about it in the picture forum, I believe, but we were talking about eating some gum from those packages. LOL!
I got a pretty good sized binder full of mostly baseball cards. I'll never forget the time when I was a little kid and I got a Hank Aaron holographic card and I thought it was a sticker (some of the packs came with silver stickers) and ruined it trying to peel it off.
Most of the cards are like Nolan Ryan series and I even have some Whataburger cards like this LOL! Never thought I'd see that on ebay.
I've got a closet full, could probably start up a small shop and do good for a while if I really had the urge. Have several Emmit Smith rookies, a couple of Aikmans and Irvins. I have several Yao Ming rookies, most are Topps pristines that are uncirculated.
