I still collect cards, but just boxing cards. It's much easier when there's less than 20 sets in total ever to collect. I pick up a few each year, mostly Topps cards from the 1951 set to try and complete it. Like you I"m not looking at it as an investment.
It never really was an investment for me either but I likely bought more cards as a kid than I ever would have if mother didn't disapprove so strenuously. That made collecting more fun since my grandmother told her to piss off since I was spending my own money that I had earned and cards were relatively cheap back then.Had a friend who collected as well back then but he did stupid things like cards between the spokes of your bike ( I never did that) and as far as the Seaver rookie card with the other homo o it he'd cut those cards in half so each player had "their own card" .
I ended up with most of his cards as I'd tell him his cards were obsolete whrn the next year came out, lol.
Kinda sad I didn't keep all the hot wheels I had growing up. An uncle was getting me one a month back then for awhile. Those ended up being given to a friends kid.
This thread was great till Rossi posted that AA ruined it.
