Sports Cards

Inspired by the National Baseball Card Day article, i figured I'd start a sports card thread.  Did any of you get back into this during quarantine?  Or have some of you never quit?  I got back in during the height of covid.  Mostly vintage stuff, though i bought a few boxes of newer stuff.  about 90% of the stuff i got was vintage basketball, though i did delve into some Twins stuff.  I picked up some cool AK rookies, as well as Royce Lewis.  I also picked up some Byron Buxton stuff hoping this would be his big year (whoops!).

I got back into it, in an odd way. Pulled out several moving cartons of vintage cards from our storage area, and winnowed down the collection to what I was willing to pay the movers to ship back with us on our return move last month.  I was pleasantly surprised to net a few hundred dollars from a very good dealer, on the assorted junk I was willing to part with - probably doesn't pay very well for having lugged those many pounds of cardboard with me through my adult life, but better than dumping them at the recycling center which I had been led to expect was the fate for 90% of the more recent stuff.

It was tremendous fun to sort through it all.  And what I did choose to keep represents a sort of "time-capsule" to myself, for enjoyment the next time I pull them out and go through them.

A large part of the sentimental value is the cards that my brother and I accumulated during our formative years. The rainbow of Topps issues from one year to the next - orange, blue, pink, green, yellow - never fails to bring a smile.
