I'm back! My name is Jason and I have a card problem. Here's my story:
I started collecting in the early 80's when Mom would by me a pack here and there for a chore well done. It was casual for a while. Then one day, a neighbor gave me a lunch bag (yeah, that pains me too) of cards and inside was this (sans autograph):
I was done, from there I went into obsession mode. I collected every card I could find. In 1987, I was able to meet the man himself and get this card autographed. Needless to say it was an exciting experience, one I'll never forget. I collected until about 1990 and gave it up while I was in high school. Girls and partying had taken over. But, after getting married and my daughter coming into the world, I got back into the hobby around 1995 or so. I collected heavily for about two years and then for some reason I lost interest again and sold off most of my cards. Fast forward to late 2008. I was looking for a hobby and I thought why not jump back into cards, it's what I know best? So here I am, obsessed once again.
