Now, I myself am a teacher and have started using one of the same tactics that worked so well on me. After getting my old cards sent to me from my parents house, I also started picking up a few packs of "new" ones as well, and have slowly gotten back into the hobby.
I'm not a hardcore collector, but I do enjoy cards and am interested in seeing what everybody else collects. I'm a San Diego Padres fan, and have been since I was born, so they're the team that I collect, along w/a few other players. I also played catcher in Little League/Pony League, so I always like checking out cards of catchers in their gear, I think it's the the most important position on the field. I'm not sure how often I'll have time to update this, but I figure it's worth trying out.
