My Collection Of Sports Cards

My Collection Of Sports Cards



I have never been too keen on collecting things. I am sort of​ a​ simple guy at​ heart, so I love having only what I need. I have one running collection, however, that only seems to​ get bigger as​ the​ years go on. Sports cards. I really love gathering, trading and​ owning sports cards.

My love for​ sports cards began as​ a​ young child. My dad would reward me with sports cards when I did well at​ my chores or​ when I studied well for​ school. it​ was one of​ the​ only rewards he offered, and​ it​ quickly became the​ only reward that I was interested in. I remember the​ joy of​ buying my first binder to​ hold my sports cards in. I had saved my allowance for​ a​ couple of​ months and​ could finally buy the​ special sports cards holder that I had been looking at​ in​ the​ sports cards store.

As I got older, I phased in​ and​ out of​ looking for​ new sports cards, but I continually cherished my sports cards collections and​ I spent many hours of​ free time looking at​ them and​ memorizing everything I could about them. Some of​ my brothers and​ my friends made fun of​ me for​ loving my collection of​ sports cards so much, but I didn't care. I collected cards from baseball and​ basketball players mostly, but I've got small collections of​ cards from a​ variety of​ players.

When I had my own children, I could hardly wait to​ begin sharing my love for​ sports cards with my sons. I bought them sports cards within a​ week of​ their births and​ I continued to​ start small collections of​ cards with them. as​ they have gotten older, they have truly started to​ love sports cards like I do. Some of​ our best times together and​ our best conversations are surrounding our collections. No one else seems to​ understand their value quite like we do.

Once a​ year I take my three sons to​ a​ huge exhibition that is​ focused solely on sports cards. We bring our big binders and​ we make purchases and​ trades all weekend long. it​ is​ our favorite weekend of​ the​ year. We have a​ great time together and​ I love that I have something in​ common with my sons. They love asking my advice about particular trades and​ purchases, and​ I love giving my advice to​ them about sports cards.

It is​ never too late to​ start a​ collection of​ sports cards. it​ is​ a​ fun hobby that will keep you entertained for​ years to​ come.
