neat idea!

I have 5 kids and they all collect.

Michael is 5 HUGE Josh Hamilton fan - OH YEAH! little man LOVES to yell GOOOOT HEEEEEEEMAH!

Maddison is 9 and she likes Nelson cruz.

Payton is 10. dude LOVES prince fielder...and it seams anyone that is connected to Prince fielder. He collects Verlander, Braun(shares a birthday), Cabrerra (all because of the fielder connection) and of course he toploads all of his fielder cards. I recently bought a prince fielder jersey card from 2012 topps and planted it into a retail pack so he could get a thrill. he flipped out LOL!

Tyler is 12. He will open a pack here and there, but he is autistic so he is not always interested. he does LOVE Yu Darvish though.

Alyssa is 14 (does not qualify, I know) but she is the biggest baseball fan of all of the kids. she is getting old enough to buy her own boxes and bust them with dad. brings a tear to my eye

here is a picture of our crew from my brother's wedding last year

my sister moved in with my parents not to long ago and my neice/nephew were always intersted in all my baseball cards so i showed them a bunch of the cooler ones - and since then they have been hooked to find some. Anyway this one picture is when last years ginter first came out, I came home for the weekend to see my neice so excited she got a numbered card to only 25 - I thought it was very cool until I realized she had a nice rip card. She eventually wanted to open it in case there was a 1/1 wood in there but got a nice josh hamilton SP.

Collecting: Jets players, Raul Mondesi, Ross Gload, then whatever catches my eye. Just starting a photobucket,checkoutmycards. Always up for trades, just give a PM!

JJ is 10, will be 11 on the 23rd. So for his Birthday this year he wanted to go see the Rangers vs. Orioles. Wouldn't you know it would be the night Josh Hamilton hit 4 home runs. Here is a picture outside the stadium after the game next to the Great Bambino.

Talen age 4
Cohen age 2

They both love the hobby but get frustrated easy with how hard the packs are for them to open. They don't like dads help they have to do it on their own!

Kairi is 8, loves Justin Bieber. In fact, I bought two cases of Americana last years looking for the Biebs auto card for her and got two. Got the graded and now she keeps them in her backpack at all times.

Tatum is 6, loves wrestlers but not wrestling. Want CM Punk as her boyfriend. Or Jacob from Twilight.

Cadance is 4 and can draw all day if you let her. Her favorite thing is to trace over my tattoos, at least once a week.

Love all three and can't imagine where I would be without them. Got a Johnny Bench RC PSA 9.0 saved for their college fund

I'm 36 and have been collecting cardboard since I can remember. I always thought I would have a son someday to rip wax and enjoy cardboard with. Fast forward to today and I have 2 beautiful daughters Rylee 11, & Ramssy 6.
Rylee is a basketball (Lakers) cardboard fan with good jersey luck, and Ramsey (YES NAMED AFTER THE ST. LOUIS RAMS) collects all types loves her relic Triple H card. 3 collections are expensive, help a dad out! Thanks Blowout!!!

Two sons

Kyle Payton - named after my middle name and then of course Walter Payton
Brett Daniel- named after favre(pre-pics of self) and then my dad.

Oldest is Kyle who is six, Brett is 3.5. Both enjoy cards the oldest likes military themed cards, like topps honor roll years back and some American heritage.
Brett likes Hockey? Still trying to figure it out we don't have an NHL team here and I don't collect hockey?

They would both prefer to open a case of 8 second(rodeo cards) to a case of exquisite or anything else. Which works well on dads limited budget, now every time we go to Walmart it is have the gotten rodeo cards back in. They bought a blaster once and we haven't seen it since?

I have 2 daughters

Jaziel age 3- Loves me to send her cards. I literally send her cards via usps to the house addressed to her. Everytime I go to the mailbox and get our mail she runs up to me and asks if there is a package for her. Most of the time there is from me lol me sending her a couple base cards. Everytime I order from Blowout cards its a must that I have to buy her her own packs. She enjoys the hobby with me and I love it especially when she comes with her own made packages and gives me cards as well lol it is so cute!

Aleah age 4 months- Not into the hobby YET! She loves to glance at my cards though so there is some sign there. I could always let her hold one of the cards but I would get it back full of drool since at the moment she is teething and bites and puts everything in her mouth! Lol
Always looking for Dodgers Vets and current! Also collect Football as well!

Noah - 8 (9 in two weeks) - obsessed with baseball and the hobby. For fun he reads huge tomes of baseball statistics and can answer just about any question the adults throw his way about baseball history. I help run a pickup game with him and some of his school friends on Sunday mornings.....about 30 or so 6-8 year olds. Its fun teaching them the game...even if they refuse to understand why running through 1st base is better than sliding. After the game this week I handed out a bunch Bowman 12 basecards. The ungrateful lil' jerks didn't want some prospect they never heard of and kept asking if I had any Rangers. I'll look through my collection of base and bring all Rangers this week.

Evan - 6 - Doesn't care for the game all that he is a RedSox fan although no one is quite sure why. Likes collecting cards, but only because Dad and Big Bro do it.

Gabby - 3 - Knows who Josh Hamilton is.......that's about the extent of it.

Naomi - 11 months - likes to chew on any cardboard that is laying around, which ends up being a very productive way of making my sons clean up their cards.

Kaitlyn - 6 years old, she loves the sticker books in Target, I think she is currently working on the Spongebob one now.

Sarah - 1 year old, she likes to destroy her brother and sister's collections.

Congrats on the child!

Here is my oldest son, Dylan - now age 12. Loves baseball, and especially Ichiro - who is his favorite player. 8 Years ago (at the age of 4) we made a sign that said he wanted to shake Ichiro's hand, and went to the O's vs M's. While he didn't get to shake his hand, he did manage to do this

Forward 8 long years, and we finally were able to get the photo signed just last season.
