Re: Are you a "collector"?

said by ZZZZZZZ:

I love sport's cards and started getting serious about collecting them,when I broke my leg in a softball game years ago.

Here are a few.

Mickey Mantle! Had we only known then that they would be worth something today. But then again if everybody saved them, they wouldn't be worth so much.

Typically, in the 50's, I ate the bubble gum, and attached the cards on my bike with a clothespin so that they made a motorcycle noise when hit by the wheel spokes. Either that or flipped them by holding the card edges between the thumb and index finger, bending the card into an arc and seeing how far it would go when released.
