Imagine you had all the knowledge about the hobby that you have right now, but you were just starting to collect cards.
What, if anything, would you do differently? Would you collect the way you do now?
I like busting wax too much not to buy new stuff. I think if I was just starting, I would spend a portion of my card budget on new product, but I would really concentrate on my main focus, which is team collecting. I know I could make more progress on the team collection if I spent some money on it instead of only relying on trades. I would probably limit my non-Ranger player collection to one or two players at a time. That would allow me to complete those collections a little quicker too.
Now, back to reality.
Would it be out of the realm of possibility to stop collecting the way I've been doing it for all these years and start over? No, but I'm not someone who does well with change. I just don't like it. I'm a creature of habit. I am trying to get the team collection organized so I can get up a complete wantlist, but my biggest obstacle is that I'm an unorganized person by nature.
That's something I would really like to change.
