I have a ton of cards. I use to collect when I was younger and have since stopped. Although I collected some nhl memorbilia over the last few years. 8x10 auto's from Patrick Roy, Lundqvist, Kariya, Modano, Selanne, etc.
I would say that I have lost my love of collecting but I do really like displaying autographs still, Ihave a hockey wall in my den with all my auto's. Its nice, i like it.
I used to collect all sorts of cards when I was younger, not saying i'm that old now though lol. I collected mainly basketball along with some baseball, hockey and soccer cards. I have alot of special edition cards, one of my favourites would be my Jason Kidd special edition rookie card.. last time I checked it was worth about 30 bucks I think. I stopped collecting though because it was just an expensive hobby and I wouldnt really see the worth of it in my lifetime.
I never collected sports cards but I remember being in junior school collecting Star Wars cards. Yes was a young kid when episode 4 was first realieased.
I had a lot of fun with my friends at school and at home and collected almost the entire series..
The only collection I ever completed was a collection of Incredible Hulk stickers (you know, those ones you put into a special sticker book).
In fact looking back they were not stivkers but cards because I had to glue the cards into the special book - maybe stickers were to expensive to produce way back then. This was when the Incredible Hulk TV series was huge, the Bill Bixby Lou Ferigno series.
I can just imagine a ton of FriHosters all saying in unison - "WHO?"
I used to collect Topps baseball/hockey cards in the 70s and early 80s, but boys didn't think girls who collected cards were cool; so I put them away. A couple of years ago, I gave a bunch to one of my nephews and he paid for a terms worth of books with his profits. (I'm a stupid woman sometimes!)
My favorite card all-time was and still is, my Ray Borque rookie card... no wax, perfect corners, no creases, it's still in the juniorhigh english book I put it in... (Yes I kept it!)
And as for knowing the television shows of the 70s... I loved all of those shows... The Incredible Hulk (Bixby/Ferigno), Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter), Shazam (those weird Greek Gods popping up in an RV...lol) and let's not forget Isis (Isis,is-iss,is-iss) and many others.... I think I need to go see if there is a post for that discussion.
I'm off ~ n_p
