I was digging through some old boxes at home and found my monster box of baseball/football cards. I spent hours going through them (thousands, and thousands), remembering how insanely important these things were to me when I was 10-13.
I remember a bunch of my friends and I would ride our bikes clear across town trying to hunt down a certain card to complete a certain set, in hopes that we would be filthy rich from our investments. I didn't realize that I was probably better off, along with every other kid, spending my money on anything the meep else.
I also felt the same way about Mad & Cracked magazines, which I still have boxed away.
Anyone else still holding on to their old childhood sports cards, or comics for no apparent reason?
