A collector is born

I've recently mentioned in several posts about my son starting to collect 2009 Topps. Without retelling the entire story, he has seen my cards since he was young enough to slobber on them, and over the summer started buying a few packs of 2009 Topps Series One. He was excited to have his own collection and decided he would try to get the complete set.

I don't know if this will stick, but I'm doing all I can to encourage him. Whenever I give him some little reward, I try to make it a pack of cards. I've collated all the cards he bought and the couple of blasters I bought and given him all the cards towards his set (I kept the dupes). A few people have sent him some cards in the trades I've made. He likes that and I really appreciate it. A few other people have asked for a wantlist for him and we finally got it together over the weekend. It's heavy on the first series because he only has what he bought. If you can help, I'll do what I can to meet some of your wantlist or player/team needs. Thanks!
