Your Turn: What makes the hobby fun?
By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
What makes the hobby fun?
It’s not an easy question to answer because so many different people collect for different reasons. It’s also a challenge because there are so many perspectives on what’s cool and what’s not when it comes to cardboard.
A simple card like that of the Rally Squirrel, a short-printed variation found in packs of 2012 Topps showing something that actually happened on an MLB field during an MLB game, can cause just as many groans as it does chuckles. But there’s no doubting that, no matter where you stand, it’s a fun card.
In the next issue of Beckett Sports Card Monthly, we’re going to explore the subject but we want your take on something simple. We’ll run a selection of your answers in the next issue.
