    Do you collect sports cards?

    If so, what sport?

    No, I do not. But I used to, and I'd really like to get into it again. I've always loved baseball, and so far as I can tell, it was baseball cards which caused the sports card collectible industry to flower.

    Well, I started collecting baseball cards in 1986. And I was hot and heavy into it for some years. At one point in the early 1990s I had a pretty large investment in them going. I traded all of them towards a very nice guitar I wanted.

    I don't personally (the only cards I've collected recently are amiibo cards), but my dad collected baseball cards his entire life. In the 90s we went to pretty much every card show that came to the area. He bought doubles of every box set so he could open one up and keep the other sealed. (Cards from the 90s really aren't worth anything now, but he didn't know that would be the case.)

    He died in 2005, and now our utility room is filled with bins upon bins of baseball cards. Shame no one else in the family is interested in them.
