Ya i had a few magic collections myself. Those cards were quite spendy! I gave them all away along time ago though.

Reviving this old thread.

I collected a lot of sports cards myself. Have been going through them recently, but when I started collecting in the early 90's, my oldest ones are the overproduced era of cards (86-92 generally with a few exceptions). I was a big Frank Thomas and Hakeem Olajuwon fan. My biggest card pull and still remember the lottery magic feel was pulling a Frank Thomas insert worth $70 out of a single pack I bought at a grocery store. I was only 12, my heart jumped and I ran around the house in excitement and yelling what I got. That was why I bought them in the first place, the feeling of getting your favorite player or a great card.

Of course, I still like to make my dad remember selling his 1950's collection of baseball cards in the 70's for nothing. ...Mantle's worth thousands today.

Cpav, are you collecting sports cards currently? Saw you comment to that sports card place in Bis. Might check that place out sometime for the heck of it. Seems like cards are making a comeback with some of the inserts and stuff. Big money cards.

Yeah I am sort of itching to get back into it. Son is into Pokemon so I am kind of buying some baseball stuff again. Picked up some cheaper White Sox cards from there and a few cheap boxes from walmart recently. Bowman just came out yesterday so bought 2 hobby boxes of that. Supposed to be the hot item for up and coming rookies and prospects with some being worth a pretty big amount. Not cheap though. I paid like 140 a box. The boxes of jumbo of that cost 300. Sheesh but that's nothing compared to some of the heavier hitting stuff yet to release.

Anyway, kind of looking to continue adding to my Frank Thomas collection.

I see the Sports Cave guy has pulled a couple nice autograph cards. Do you have a Beckett subscription? Man I'm out of the loop on prices.
