HOBBY TOPIC:Christmas!

The Hobby Topic segment is all about you guys. Leave your opinions and thoughts (clean of language of course) on the topic chosen.

Here we go and comment away!!!

With the holiday's just around the corner, I want to know, what's would be the ONE card you hope Santa puts under the tree for you? Also, how many of you give out cards for presents? Singles? Boxes?

  1. Oh man, I've got a couple high-end boxes waiting for me. Hoping for something good! Trout? Koufax? Harper? Bryant? Probably not, but maybe.

  2. I don't really give cards (I only know one other collector in person, my brother, but he doesn't really collect like I do) so I don't give cards, but I always get some...always. Since I began collecting in 1988 I cannot remember a single year where I didn't get at least a few cards, although I don't remember the exact details of some of the early years...I'm sure there were some. Luckily, my family is very supportive of collecting.

    I actually have a blaster of 2016-17 Hoops that I bought myself waiting for me, so I know I'll get something, LOL!

  3. I bought a few boxes for presents... but they were for myself. Outside of that... the only cards I gave (or will give) will be to my Secret Santa recipient. As for the card I'd want Santa to bring... I'd go with a 1956 Topps Mantle. It's probably going to be the most expensive card I actually buy... so why not let Santa pick up the tab.

  4. I know I'll have two boxes of Star Wars Card Trader Physical to break. Stoked.

  5. I can't be a Griffey collector without an 89 UD Rookie so I hope Santa brings me that. Although I don't expect to get any cards for Christmas so I'm just dreaming at this point!

  6. I hit up a whole slew of YouTube friends every year with holiday packages, 20-30 per year. Definitely a good time to think about giving back to the community. Good topic!

  7. A ZEKE OR DAK AUTO / JERSEY CARD FOR SURE! I SEND OUT GAME-USED CARDS FOR STOCKING STUFFERS TO MY NEPHEWS.

  8. I almost never get cards from my friends or family. Although this year I did give my mom a couple empty retail packages so she'd know what to look for. I didn't have many other ideas of what I wanted...
