Where do you guys stand on baseball cards? Anyone collect them? Still have the old ones from your youth? What was your favorite part about them? Trading them had to be #1. But I was also really drawn to the personal tidbit on the back. “the first player to be traded for himself with Harry Chiti from Indians 4/27/62 and returned 6/15/62”. Stuff like that.
If I was a kid growing up now the internet would have basically ruined collecting cards for me. Memorizing the stats on the back of the card was my go-to move. Now? Stats are a click away.
And while I love that as an adult, it’s still kinda lame.
