Re: Baseball Cards
I still have my collection. I have every Topps set from 1970 to the early 90's except for one card, the 1970 Nolan Ryan. That's just too high for me. I don't think I would ever give up my collection. Especially the cards from 1971 to about 1976. Those are the most special to me. It was during my most formative years and bring back all kinds of memories. I've replaced some of the more beat up cards with better ones. But I usually keep the beat up ones knowing they were the originals I bought in packs of gum. It was lots of fun going to the five and dime stores and buying packs. Running home to open them and see who you got. At one time I'm sure I had tons of doubles from 1972 through 1975. That was the time I bought the most at the five and dime stores and the most carefree time of my life. I don't know if the kids today get the same kind of enjoyment I got back then. I don't have any kids, so I don't know for sure, but I doubt that they do.
