    Just read this and your original entry for the first time...pretty neat! I know I've said this before, but I'm saying it again - you and I sound very similar, and I mean that in a good way! :-) I especially like your last line ;-) Geekdom rules!

    No probs. And you didn't stick with hockey? tsk tsk tsk...only joking...

    By the way, would you mind if I included this blog in the next SCF magazine? Could be nice to find out how some of our members got hooked...Let me know if that's ok.

    Thanks for the comments and the corrections! I should've added that I did collect hockey briefly when I started following it a little after playing NHL 94 and NHL 95 on the SNES. I remember getting $2.50 "fat packs" of 1993-94 Upper Deck hockey. I liked their hat trick inserts..I remember getting one of Theoren Fleury. I never got any Gretzky, though.

    Very interesting read Khendra and quite similar to how I started collecting really. Except my collecting has always been strictly hockey. The bit about rounding the corners and smudging the gloss made me laugh as I used to do the same...I would also put the cards and the floor 5 against 5 and slide them along as if the players were playing a hockey game...nice scratches.

    Fixed the typos for you btw ;)

    Whoops, I made a couple of typos in the following sentence:

    Never has my collection been so large anad varied; even the thousands of cheap early and mi 1990s cards [...]

    Should read and; mid.
