You'd be surprised to know that many people that collect started doing it as kids. You should also try and stop by a card show or card shop and watch a young kid open a few packs. Lastly, I challenge you to be a speaker at a grade school and give out baseball/football packs. See how excited the children get and be amazed that it's not about the money, because most of the time, it isn't.

Thats great that they are into the hobby. Wha he is talking about is the kids who collect pokemon cards and advisement grab a few football packs, pull a newton auto, and throw it in the trash eventually cause they don't care. I agree cause if there were no hits in retail, that wouldn't happen, but kids can still go t the lcs if they are interested and understand how things work. My daughter is 3 and I have 2 collections for her. 1 that I keep in mag cases and one of base that she plays with, kids play with cards all the time and I agree that big hits shouldnt be played with , or even given the chance to be treated this way.
