Default Female collector from hawaii!

Hi,

I decided to join because it's kind of weird for me to be a collector of this kind of stuff, especially being that I'm female. Almost none of my friends know I do this....at least I'm semi-anonymous here =)

Anyhow, I collect all kinds....from coins, cards & autos. I'm always trying to keep up with box breaks to find out what I'm going to buy next.


Thanks!

Aloha! I've been on Oahu for two years and have never seen a card show per se. Closest thing is the Wiki Wiki Collectors shows at the Blaisdell center that take place every couple months. You actually get a good number of dealers with cards and memorabilia; I've found some awesome stuff in the past. There's also a good amount of Japanese baseball stuff for sale at those shows, which is certainly different than what you'll find at the mainland. I don't really know the situation on the other islands, so if you're on Oahu, I can answer questions!

Trust me...card shop owners dont care what gender/race you are as long as you are buying their products they will be more than happy to help.
