Wife complaining about Card Collecting
Just wondering if there other guys like me that enjoy collecting cards, but have a wife/girl friend that doesn't see the value. My wife has mentioned several times that when I die, the cards will be in the trash. Which is going to make some rubbish collector a very wealthy man. Many of my friends have mentioned they would take the cards when I die, nice guys. Let me know if your wives are any different then mine, or maybe they are the perfect wife and are into collecting cards with you. Just wondering out loud...........

RE: Wife complaining about Card Collecting
I try to explain it as such, if she can buy a pair of pants for $300, then you can buy a box of cards for $150.

RE: Wife complaining about Card Collecting
My gf doesn't understand or necessarily approve of it and she will never under any circumstance get into it herself or buy me something involving it, but she feigns enthusiasm when I show or tell her about something.

RE: Wife complaining about Card Collecting
My wife is quietly tolerant, but not enthusiastic about my collecting. -I think the key is to make yourself a little room in the basement/attic (if possible) where it's not as visible to her. What drives wives crazy (mine at least) is seeing penny sleeves on the counter, cards on the dining room table, etc. I think if you keep your stuff organized and out of the way, you'll have solved half the battle.

Obviously, if it's a money thing, I'd explain to her that there's a lot of expensive hobbies out there. -Cars, motorcycles, antiques, etc. By comparison, cards are relatively inexpensive and take up a LOT less space. There's a lot of worse to spend your time and money-- bars and "dance" clubs (I use that term loosely out of respect to the younger readers) come to mind.

RE: Wife complaining about Card Collecting
my gf loves baseball, one of the great reasons we get along so well. she doesnt mind one bit. she's never said a bad thing about collecting as she understands its a hobby. though i can tell she thinks i spend money unwisely at times, which i do, she doesn't say a peep.

i even got her to help me sort my 2 jumbos friday night. Big Grin

Haha. -I definitely wasn't referring to discoteques, if you know what I meanWink Also, I'm in the process of having a 1965 Peugeot motorcycle restored. If my wife had any idea what it was costing I'd be sleeping in the garage. lol.

RE: Wife complaining about Card Collecting
My exwife was like that. Glad she is my exwife. Now my fiance likes anything that is worth money ans she is supportive of my having a hobby. I dont want to talk about your wife but she should be happy you arent tossing money to strippers or wasting money elsewhere. At least you are spending money on something that has value. What does she buy? I will bet she buys shoes and purses...LOL.
