Real Life Card Collecting

SDS

Open up some real Packs and used it to build a team to play in ranked. Gotta say Haven't opened up some real packs since I was a kid.

Holding the cards in my hand, the smell, flipping the cards over and reading the stats and info. I forgot how fun it was and definitely brought back a lot of childhood memories. Definitely might get back into card collecting as a hobby and hey even potential investment if you happen to get a rare card.

That being said here's the link to the video hope you guys enjoy and let me know if you're a card collector. If i wanted to start collecting, where do I begin? Also drop a comment on the video and let me know some of your favorite cards you've collected.

I absolutely love collecting cards in RL.

The key thing to know that in general, rookie cards, (And 1st Bowman for prospects), are typically the most sought after. Know what rookies in each product. For example, 2020 Topps Series 1 has so many great rookies like Yordan and Bo Bichette.
2020 Topps Series 2 is lighter on rookies this year, with the only noteworthy big-name being Luis Robert

Thanks for the info man. The 2020 series was actually the one i opened. I though about doing series 2 for my next vid. But based on your advice stick with series 1?

Series 2 isn't bad, the Luis Robert is a popular card, especially with it just being released. But if I had the choice between the two, I'd personally go Series 1.

I used to get the full season box sets when I was a kid back in the 90s for Christmas.

This is kind of off topic but remember the game Ken Griffey Jr Major League Baseball for Super Nintendo? You could rename each player to their real name. I used my cards to do this and it took hella lotta time to do but was worth it to me. Loved that game

Yeah didn't seem so bad. Think I only got like 2 duplicates. Best card was a Keston Hiura Autograph.

That's a great pull, finding autographs in retail boxes is pretty rare, and Hiura is a popular name, a lot of people collect him.

Watched the video, I like the edit of going to the MLB card after you show the real life one, it was pretty cool. If I could give a bit of advice, try to work your camera settings where it isn't vertical cam so you don't have the black spaces.

Collect what you like, don’t get caught up in what other people collect and just go after stuff you like for yourself. That’s the advice I give to every new person that comes back into the hobby

Guess I should definitely hold it to it then. Also really appreciate the advice. I'll make sure i work on that for the next video. Appreciate you taking the time to watch the video man.

Back in the MVP Baseball and early The Show days I would go through and edit every player and create players as the season went on. Back before roster updates or roster vaults. Would take days to do but I was OCD af about it. Thank goodness for OSFM now.

I still get a box set a year for Christmas or my birthday. It's great opening cards, I get excited pulling Trout just as much IRL lol.

Haha no. I haven’t had a chance to look at your vid yet. I just kind of skimmed over to see what your starting lineup was and then I ordered Chinese food.

Loved that game! Re-doing the Braves roster was so much fun, especially when you can get deep into the bench and bullpen guys.
