Does anyone still collect the trading cards?

I recently got back into it and now loving that i finally have something to collect. I'm 18 by the way, last time i collected them was when i was in primary school so about 8 years old.

I had a brief nostalgia burst last year, buying all the Black and White series ones. I ended up with most of the set actually, but when I realised how much I'd been spending I contented myself by stopping once I got the Samurott I wanted :P

I have the full collection all in mint condition of FOSSIL series cards. The first and only set I have completed of cards in real life. They are also a huge link to how many great friends I used to have back in the day who bought them for me.

New cards tho? lolscrewthat

You're right, my money is depleting so easily by buying booster packs.. But i can't stop. That's also the reason why i went back into collecting them, had a huge nostalgic burst and now i'm willing to put aside any spare money to get cards hahaha, I've obtained the collectors curse.

Put the whole set up on ebay or some collectors site. I can guarantee some good money will be paid to get those cards for some desperate collector. Any old rare cards will receive quite a lot actually.

I have a picture frame up on my wall showing my foil Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur cards.

Other then that, not really, although I do take a look at the decks and boosters when I see them while waiting in line at the store.
