    Question Do you read the back of your cards?

    Do you read the back of your cards? Or is this no longer a thing/important.

    Sometimes. That 2010 Pinnacle set had great write-ups on the back of every card instead of stats. The Tough Times inserts were especially good.

    Sure do ! The cards backing might not have as much info as years past (depending on the card), but there still can be a sweet little blurb written on the back of a sick auto/memorabilia card. Makes you remember something neat about said player.

    Plus it brings me back to my roots of collecting when me and some of my friends would read the backs.

    Yes.

    It's still a great way to learn something about your favorite players. Especially if the write-ups are done well. And even more so if there's a little cartoon on the back.

    I try to, but the more modern cards and the aging eyes don't mix well any more. Need magnification assistance more and more. Middle Age stinks sometimes.
    My teams are Redskins, Rams, Nationals (Senators), Orioles, Capitals, Wizards (Bullets) and Univ Maryland for College football. I like to trade team for team since I usually don't have the superstars people want or crave.
    I am working on the 1965 Topps Baseball set build Hidden Content .

    I do sometimes. Usually I will read the rookies to learn more about them. Or if I need to learn how to pronounce their names, thank you MVP.

    Yes I do still read the backs of my cards. Everything from stats to memorable moments if any.

    Always. For someone who collected as a kid back in the late 60's and early 70's have always read the backs. As others stated some cards have interesting facts as well as stats. Or cartoons. Can not build a set without reading card backs. Still part of the thrill of collecting to me.
