I hear ya 33rd, there are larger things in life, thats for sure.
But it is the little things like the childhood memories of our fathers and loved ones that we share a common link to the past through the power of these little pasteboard cards. No amount of money can buy that, and in the world of card collecting nothing could be bigger.
Obviously its nice to think ones collection hold some kind of monetary value, Im not going to deny that. But when the precieved value becomes more the focus than the card itself, I'll find another hobby. Knitting or something LOL!
So why wait to talk FOOTBALL! Blackie pulled out a Jim Brown rookie on me he picked up. so I better put my worse for wear Jim Brown up! Actually other than the pencil mark and the dinged top corner it ain't really all that bad.
I know, I know... I touted myself as a centering freak, but we all know thats not always possible.
Maybe some day I'll gather up some pop bottles and get down to the local drug store and pick me up a nicer one. LOL!!
One thing IS for sure. Jim Brown was a man among boys.
Be safe all!!
