RE: Wife and cards?
I can answer this one because of my Dad... He wanted a Randy Moss/ Tom Brady dual auto more than ANYTHING... I brokered a deal to get him a Bowman Sterling BGS 8.5 at $250... He couldn't justify it in his mind for a day or two... He was buying $50-100 cards all the time, but never shelled out $250 for ONE card, even though it was his dream card AND a great price. It drove me crazy. My mom and I finally convinced him, why spend $85 each for 3 cards you kind of like when you can buy the card you have been dying for before it was even made?
Some people just HATE seeing so much money tossed at one card.

Over 3500 Marinos with over 330 memorabilia card (100 of which are auto'd)

My wife supports my hobby. She doesnt even blink when i spend $1000's on a case. Only thing she doesnt understand is why i get rid of nicer cards. It helps letting her run wild at tiffany's and the coach store. Lol.

RE: Wife and cards?
Yeah my wife and cards don't really add up either. She's okay with it sometimes, but if we get into an argument, she brings it up every time. So I have cut my spending by quite a bit which is a good thing. But I won't stop buying them, it's my hobby and my choice. You just have to have a master plan of funneling unseen money into a different bank account she doesn't know about. Then have that account linked to PayPal. Then you can buy all you want as long as you get to the mailbox before she does. And if you don't, you can just say its a card you traded for lol.

RE: Wife and cards?
Haha I go through this ll the time. If I buy a single for $200 she will be furious! But if I spend that same amount on a couple boxes...no problem. The logic confuses me but oh well. She is getting into cards a little, has a marino pc, but hates how much money I spend on them. Hey everyone has to have a hobby right? I don't knock her when she blows $100 or more on makeup LMAO!

nthnoak: I'm guilty of the same thing my man lol.

adb: Same thing happened to me when she found the button that calculates the total value of a collection in the org. Good thing 1/1s and low ser# aren't included or I might come home from work one day and find my cards sold!

RE: Wife and cards?
My wife is OK with me buying cheaper singles and trading whatever but prefers I buy boxes so she can help break them. Besides I wouldn't spend $250 for a card I would trade for it with cards I pull. Call me cheap but others get the $250 that I pulled and I get the players I want.

+1, lol. 007 at work. I've done the exact same thing. The only problem you have now is trying to hide all of your pick ups. Women always notice little things. My wife can sense when I've added a few extra cards. Face it they are too smart. We will never win in this battle.

I collect LeBron, Jordan, Kobe and anything that catches my eye.

RE: Wife and cards?
Lol my wife had a gasket when she found out how much I spend at the LCS when I go. I showed her my completed listings on eBay and we have been fine since then with cards lol. She doesn't do cards with me and my son, but she loves sports, so she's a keeper. Smile especially being a braves fan and bucs fan to.

if you are wondering why i stayed with her after that? she loves sports as much as i do (even if she is a celtics fan), she's an incredible cook, she's smart, and well...she's wicked hot (im completely punching above my weight)

im dumb, but i aint smart stupid

I hope you cut one of her favorite shoes in half to show what the card meant to you.
