Actually it was the answer to your original question. It is what people usually say when I tell them I collect cards.

Yeah, I wasn't sure either. Maybe the op was just surprised nobody has bashed him yet and was expecting it.

Parents are actually split on this. One says its a waste of money one doesn't care as long as we're having fun with it.

The rest of my family occasionally will show interest and ask about rookies but they really don't care.

Although they are surprised when I get those ttm returns in the mail

My mom likes it because it is the first hobby i have stayed with in a long tome, and my dad likes it because he is a businessman and says its good for learning about markets.

My friends make fun of me for it...but whatever...if not cards, then something else.

Most ask if cards are still worth money, almost mocking our hobby.. then I throw out what a couple Super's sold for and they are put in place. A lot of people say they still have cards and ask me to look through them.. lots of 80s-90s base good for firewood or toilet paper.

Im the same way as you, when my friends would come over and see them I'd tell them and tell them about how much some of them were worth and how much money ive made from selling them and they all think its awesome haha
