Talking My First Aaron Rodgers Auto!

So a little over a year ago, I decided I had to stop collecting cards the way that I had been. I was spending way too much money, and although I loved it, my budget just couldn't handle it. Rather than keep collecting the way I was, I held on to my more rare cards and sold off most of the rest of them. My goal was to just collect higher end cards going forward.

Super excited that my first purchase in over a year was this baby!!!



I absolutely love the way this card looks! And on card!

While I have no plans to ever go crazy again from a budget perspective, I'm looking forward to enjoying my hobby a new way. Only display-worthy cards going forward, not 'everything!'

^smart collector.

I've done the same thing. My thoughts are:

"Having a massive player collection is kind of like having a twenty-inch dick. I mean it's real impressive, but when you get right down to it there's not a whole lot of it you can actually use."

Beautiful card.

As far as collecting goes I am trying to go the same direction. I have a ton of random 2012 inserts and a ton of random Chiefs cards. I would love to get $200 for everything and just keep my more rare cards.
