    Wink Hello! Getting back into the hobby after 20+ years

    Hello all! Thank you for accepting me into the family. My name is Ryan. I live in beautiful northern Minnesota, yes it's cold!!! anyways, I have read many of the posts below mine and find it very refreshing that I am not the only one! I am 40 years old. I was looking for something to do on a frigid day, maybe a new hobby. I sat and thought for about it and remembered the absolute pure joy of collecting cards from when I was young. Running down to the nearest gas station and spending every penny I had from my paper route on packs of cards. Topps, Fleer, Bowman and eventually Upper Deck. the excitement was too much. I longed for that feeling again. So i bought a couple hanger packs at Walmart. I felt the same feeling I had when I was a kid. Opened my first pack and -BOOM- pulled an Adam Thielen jersey patch card. It was destiny. So needless to say I was hooked again. over the last 2 months or so I have found eBay, Facebook 'Break' & razz groups too. I have met a lot of people already as well. That's how I found this forum. I realize now how much the hobby has changed too. I made the mistake of diving right into all of these breaks, razz's, eBay all at once. What I have learned in this short period of time is- Start with one team, player or maybe set. There is way too many types and styles of cards out there or maybe I should say- there is a type and style for everyone. Take your time!!! research and post on this forum. The card world is an amazing group of people and everyone I have met has been super helpful. Thanks again for having me here. I'm excited to network out and enjoy this hobby for life. Cheers all!

    Also, I have started a YouTube channel where I will be sharing my adventures in collecting. My first two videos are pretty rough and I was nervous as heck, but I promise the quality and content will get better. Ruguy Riz is the channel.

    Hitting a nice patch of Adam T is a awesome start to getting back into the hobby. Hope you enjoy the site and best of luck with your youtube channel.

    Thanks for sharing, it's awesome to hear from collectors who stepped away for a while and came back into it.
