SDS

I am looking to get into collecting and like idk what to collect

SDS

I love collecting cards. I have many diffrent sets of them. I do like tops though and i tend to get a box set a year for Christmas or my birthday. Needless to say i have boxes of them because i've been collecting most of life since the middle 1990s. Just find one you like you really can't go wrong.

SDS

Yes! It's my favorite hobby!

For me, I just collect what I pull, Being able to look at my some of my best pulls and remembering that feeling is great.

What do you think you would enjoy most? Collecting your team? Collecting your favorite player? Collecting the most current rookies/prospects?

If you're into prospects, Bowman is a great product, though 2020 Bowman is delayed because of what's going on in the world right now.
Topps Series 1, 2, and update are considered the "flagship" products. But there are so many different sets that appeal to so many different people. I know a lot of people love 2020 Gypsy Queen from Topps. Just look at designs and see what appeals to you.

Man I was kicking myself the other day after going through some of my old cards and finding Bowman rookie cards (high school cards) of Aroldis Chapman, Grandal, Goldschmidt, Lemahieu and Baez amongst others. Kind of wish i had kept them sepret from everything else now.

Yeah, I went through my cards awhile ago when this whole Covid thing started, I was surprised at the stuff I found like a 2017 Matt Olson RC Rainbow foil.
I now have a shoebox system where I sort things by years, keep all the years rookies together so I can go back later and see who panned out.

Thats a really smart idea, it might take some time but it's nice going back and seeing which sets you've collected through the years. I've seen a lot of cards in mlb 2020 that i've collected irl. It's been kind of like a flashback to my childhood.

SDS

This isn't to be a smart a**, but I honestly didn't know they even made them still. I still have a complete 1990 topps collection in plastic sleeves - over the years it just became harder to find them so I stopped.

If you want to start out with some decent cards, go with Bowman Chrome. Personally, I love buying the Bowman Draft boxes and hope I have a future Mike Trout in them. Elite Extra boxes have a lot of autos and #/d cards for the price.

SDS

The card hobby is booming now. Been collecting heavily since college so about 15 years now. Go to shows monthly (before COVID) and do a lot of business on eBay. Frequent Blowout forums a lot also.

SDS

You should see my small Trevor Story collection

Do you get your cards PSA graded?

SDS

I collected when I was a kid but I haven't for a really long time. In my closet i have four huge binders of cards, ranging from the early 80s to the mid 90s. I don't think any of them are worth much, but maybe they will be someday when I'm old and grey lol.

SDS

I love it as a kid. A couple years back, I got back into it...and spent a ton of money...LOL!
I love Bowman for the prospects. I also grab a few Topps here and there (same company).
Just collect items you enjoy...and it will be worth it.

Some BGS some PSA. Prefer PSA personally.

Sadly those cards in that timeframe aren't worth hardly anything regardless of the player.

I collected cards since i was a kid and when it came time to sell my over 100 thousand cards i got $300. problem is there are to many cards in circulation. If i was to get back into it i would collect only rookies, cards from the early 1900's up to the 60's and i would make sure to get them graded.

My best card was a 1911 T205 Eddie Collins, bad grade so was only about $200

Oh well, I mostly keep them for nostalgia. Back then I was too young to know or care about the need to keep cards in mint condition, so half my collection would probably be worthless anyway.
