Why I Got Back Into Collecting

Why did I get back into collecting?
I can honestly say that dayf over at Cardboard Junkie was largely responsible.  I was cleaning out my storage room and came across all my cards from when I was growing up (I started collecting in 1981 when I was 4 years old and stopped in 1992).  Later that night, I decided to do some searching on the web and see what was going on in the collecting world these days.  I stumbled across Cardboard Junkie’s video break of 2009 Obak.  I watched from beginning to end and decided that I needed a box.  I ordered a box of Obak and a box of National Chicle, which was the newest release at the time.  Here’s what I got:

Lucky: Yes.  Hooked: Absolutely!

I was actually most excited about the Dale Murphy.  Besides Pete Rose, he was my favorite player growing up.

After that, I went nuts buying old sets from my childhood and started easing my way into the stuff I missed out on from 1993 to present.

So, let me begin by offering much thanks to dayf for getting me back into a hobby that meant the world to me growing up!

    Just remember not to go overboard and to have fun! That Jimmy Stewart card is insane, by the way.
