Our Kid Collector of the Week feature will focus on kids from around the country who are deeply involved with The Hobby. Most collectors got involved when they were young and have fond memories of their early years, so we wanted to 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 we talked to Olivia from Moorhead, MN. Her favorite local card shop is Big Nick’s Sports Cards in Fargo, ND.

Olivia: My dad got me into the hobby because he likes to collect so it’s something we do together.
BM: How long have you been collecting?
