I stopped trying to be a dealer, I was not very good at it. But I do sell on Sportlots and COMC.

I am done selling on Ebay, have not listed anything in years. I did consign 125 graded cards to Probstein and the experience was so good I will do it again.

I tell myself I am a collector but my wife calls me a hoarder. She might be right, but I will never admit it.

I'm sure there's a little "hoarder" in all of us. I too get attached to certain cards... but I'm trying to get "better".

Recovering hoarder who deals a little bit to help his collection. :D


I still have a TON of crap in my attic I need to get rid of, just stuff I have no space to display. I've gotten MUCH better, I'm only buying things I really want.

I'm a collector, only keep about 40-50 graded cards at one time. I guess by definition, I am hoarding 70 unopened wax.

Im more of a collector. I hoard Mike Schmidt cards but really have little interest in having 50 of a certain year. Well, post 1980 lol.
