  • Too much cardboard!!!

    When do you say enough?? I have been a sports card collector since I was 12 or so, mainly hockey 23 years of collecting cards some trading, but mainly hoarding I have been told. I am at a point in life where I have focused my collecting on certain players , but still have boxes of cards that are very hard to part with. I did manage to part with some at card shows but purchased more of my main focus. So when is enough???

        Hi think there's just too much products out there, made by too many companies. I think if every company would produce like 2 or 3 new products by sports by year, cards would be more rare, and would be easier to keep track of all the cards being made...

          It is never enough. I can't stop collecting, and don't plan on it. It is however a hobby and should not ever overtake the other important things in your life like family and friends. But this is for fun and you should do it as long as you can!
