Cool Rookie from San Diego, CA!!

What's up everyone?! My names Stephen and am new to the forum! I'm 24 and live in San Diego, CA. I recently began collecting again, after a 7 year hiatus!! I collect the cards from the following:

Kobe
KD
Stephen Curry
Klay Thompson
Kevin Martin
Larry Fitzgerald

I've been thinking of beginning an RG3 collection but I'm not sure if my pockets can afford all that!

If you guys have any pointers on collecting nowadays, please let me know. Like I said, I recently started back up, and have been mainly dealing with eBay and a few local shops. Thanks for reading!

Thanks! I picked up a majority of his RC's along with nice inserts from every year and some game-used stuff. I'm pretty happy with that collection and will add stuff as I go along. My main focus is now to gain high-end stuff. I just made my 1st major purchase: 12-13 Select Stars Auto/Jersey Redemption #/199. $140 BIN on eBay. That's usually the most I can spend and I can't do it often.

If anyone knows any other ways to get Kobe auto's for around $100-$120, please let me know. Also, I don't have much to trade since I'm starting back up, and I don't trust my luck with purchasing boxes.

One more thing, could anybody explain these Group Case Breaks to me? I keep going in on the forum to try to understand, but I truly can't understand. Thanks guys!

If you search the forums, there are one or two Kobe autos going for 100-120. In terms of the group break, there are different types of group breaks. The most common one is the random team group break. Basically 30 split the price of a case and each person is assigned a team. It is all random and you get the cards from the case.
