When you decide to call it quits....

Post by Guest on Sat Feb 18, 2012 8:47 pm

What are your plans for your collection when it is time to give up the hobby?

My answer to this has to always been to pass down my collection to my child/children when I can no longer enjoy the hobby. My hope in life is that my future kids will enjoy the hobby of collecting autographs as much as I do. Traveling, meeting new people, and just the thrill of completing pieces have been some of the best moments of my life and have brought nothing but joy to me. I can only hope they would get the same fulfillment. They will inherit a great collection.

What a great topic/question!

Sad to think about that... But great discussion starter!


I hope to pass it along to if/when I have kids. If they won't appreciate it I will donate my stuff to charity!

I won't leave the hobby. It will leave me. I will stop collecting when I am gone.

Ditto! I don't think I'd ever give it up totally!

My son is starting his own collection and my daughter already told him that EVERYTHING I have in my collection will get divided 50/50...

So thought I would dip into this once again....and to bump for new members.

For those who don't know me yet, I am one of the younger members on this board and am near completing my first year in college, with the desire of obtaining a degree in business. Ultimately, my goal in life for years now has been to open a successful sports bar and grill in the Chicagoland area along while giving my closest friends and family a chance to work beside me. Sports have been my life, and along with good food and fellow diehard sports fans, what a better way to work?

Back to being more on topic, similar to one of our members, Desi, I hope to be able to display some of my memorabilia in my (and in his case, his wife's) establishment to give it a true sports bar look. Then later on, I hope to pass down the bar and the memorabilia to my future children, or whoever comes along that should be in my will. Just a little more in depth I thought I could add. Smile

Yes, when I cut the ribbon SPAAM Members get the first round on me. Just have to keep the Red Stag away from Silly. Very Happy

I myself "retired" from collecting....having been collecting all my life, it came to the point where I needed to choose between saving money for the baby we have on the way, or keep buying autographs and figures. I still add cheapo figures and trade, but not in the volume I used to.

One of these things will occur to get me out of the hobby:

1. The Houston Texans move to another city.
2. Players all together refuse to sign cards.
3. The card market goes completely belly up and there are no more card makers.
4. The NFL continues to crowd out autograph collecting adults billing the industry as a 'kids hobby'.

I stopped doing TTM a few weeks ago and I am making the switch to IP. I will never fully stop the hobby in general, but I would go the giving to a family member route.0

Good question...pondered this many times myself...so far, no kids...not sure I want kids...so I have no one to pass it down to...so I'll probably hold on to my collection and show it off to friends when they come over...possibly sell it all down the road when I retire and buy a kick ass moped to woo the ladies...

Heck, I wanna be buried in my Bucky Dent hat and if I ever get a REAL GU uniform. The others will go to my kids. Tiger7171, you hit it, I quit when I die. And Johnny Robinson was my favorite LSU player. I met him in person once and he was cool as all get out. He even signed a jersey for me for free. I'm hoping to exhibit my collection to the public, actually. My house already looks like a museum...LOL
