RE: You know you're obsessed with baseball [cards] when...
You might be obsessed with cards if....

- you go running and instead of listening to an ipod, you think about the box you'll pick up next

- you keep top loaders in the center console of your car

- you go to a Flea Market and only go to one table

- you go on vacation and call all the card stores in the area

- you don't mind going to an antique store, because there's a chance they could have cards

- you don't talk about what you spend your money on

- you use buying cards as motivation to get stuff done

- if you remember the year your dad was born because it was the same year as Mantle's rookie

you already own 12 of the cards numbered to 25 but you just had an awesome mail day because 13 just came in!

Your local PO knows you only as "Baseball card guy" (its sad cause that's what they call me...lol)

You buy retail packs/blaster boxes you don't even necessarily want just to satisfy that need to rip packs.

I have done that too. I have also corrected movies out loud when they say something about a card that is incorrectSmile

when you give your junk commons from the late 80s to your kids so you can get them into collecting too. (Mine are age 4 and 2)

when you can have a detailed conversation with someone about players stats.

when the best memories of your childhood were of opening packs.

When you used up all your job's bubble envelops and packaging tape, now you have to purchase your own.

Collect GU/AU of Biggio, Berkman, and Oswalt. Also interested in any Astros/Rangers GU/AU cards. Thanks!
