Just to clarify, I did not write that bolded part as a statement I believe in. I wrote it because that was the question posed that I attempted to answer (you'll see it in my original response - I quoted it). The "How much time do you have" is an attempt to say that I could give a very, very long answer. There's a ton of stuff other than player collecting.
Player collecting is just a small avenue in the vast world of collecting. There are literally an infinite number of directions you can take your collection.
Sorry if my post didn't make sense.
I think your signature says it best...
Who cares what others think of your collection, you should be collecting for yourself and not them.

I wonder what is going to happen once I get My 2006-07 Cup Phil Kessel ARP the one I have been searching for 3 years now. Will I still want to collect after I hit this White Whale? Recently I even took a step back and stopped collecting Maple Leafs cards to just collecting Phil Kessel. I'm starting to get tired & the lock out is not helping. I am not sure what I will do with my Leafs collection yet well over 10000 cards going back to sets from 1961 sell it keep it? I know I will never recover even half of what I paid for it so I might just keep it for my kids let them decide what to do with it.Collecting Phil Kessel, Anna Kournikova & Danica Patrick cards! Trading for my PC only. PHIL KESSEL THE CUP ARP has been acquired. Looking for 06-07 SPGU Phil Kessel Lettermarks need letter S S E /50

its tough times for being a player collector indeed...with the introduction of 50 mind numbing parallels in this set and the same cookie cutter single color swatches in that set it does tend to become boring at times...with the exception of a few nice highenders that unfortunately lay hidden in products that are way overpriced to bust. i do wish you luck with whatever direction your collection takes!Eric Staal PC= 1635 different and counting
