Kid Collector of the Week: Brett from Kent, WA
Our Kid Collector of the Week feature focuses on one kid each week from around the country who is deeply involved with The Hobby. Most collectors got involved when they were young and have fond memories of their early years, so we highlight kids who are just getting their start in collecting.
Kid Collector of the Week is brought to you by Southern Hobby who shares a passion for inspiring the next generation of card collectors.
This week’s Kid Collector is Brett from Kent, WA. His favorite local card shop is DJ’s Sportscards in Renton, WA.
