I thought this hobby was dead. When I was a kid in the early 90s everyone I knew was collecting. We all thought we would be millionaires in 20 years with our hoard of Barry Bonds rookie cards. Didn’t quite work out that way but I still got a few good ones sleeved up in a binder somewhere.

I used to be big into collecting cards when I was younger. Just started getting back into it during the pandemic. Hard to find much retail these days. Did find a bunch of the new Rookies & Stars football in Target last week. Card collecting can be really addicting. Tough to stop buying once you start.
Is there a certain sport you’re getting back into o just collecting in general?

When you mention “pull”, how do you know which packs etc to go after
Unlike the pack feelers at Target, I used to buy a box of cards. I'd open all of the packs and a "pull" was if you happened to get a valuable (if valuable only to you) card from that box.

I guess I had a pro football moment in 1971. Every team but not every player. Should I be on the lookout for particular card(s). Thanks!
