How do I start collecting good cards?
Should I sell my crap cards? I have a few good cards, not many though, where would I get the money for it? Sellling bad cards?

Nobody will buy crap cards unless they collect the specific player - maybe in player or team lots? eBay? COMC? Donate them to local charities or children's hospitals? Karma will reward you.

Hmm, I'll try lots of 1 team or player, see how that turns out.

RE: How do I start collecting good cards?
I have moved a bunch of cards I thought of as "crap" through trades, and I have taken others' "crap" cards to fill in blanks of my own. As the Grateful Dead once said, "One man gathers what another man spills." Of course, if I find I have 20 copies of a 1987 Topps Ripken, they go to the local Harbor House, the neighbor's kids, nieces and nephews, etc. If I keep one or two around, though, someone always wants them, eventually.

I like career Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, Fire, Red Stars, and Sky players in their respective Halls of Fame, in addition to several authors and track athletes. Add to the list some personal favorite lifers from past and present rosters, and the other 35,000 cards in my collection are for you.

You probably would never want to title something "Crap"; don't think you would get too many bids. Then again I've seen some weird stuff sell.

Like who is your favorite team, favorite player? Did you play sports? If so, what position? All kinds of things you can collect and endless formulas to your madness!!

Example I played 2nd base in baseball, so I collect 2nd baseman/infielders for Baseball.
Football my team is the jags. I collect jag players!! I love WR's and RB's aka the real work horse's of the league, so i show my respect to them by collecting them too!

Hope you find something that fits you.
