Another collector's wife told my wife of 3 months,  "Don't let it bother you, they say they collect baseball cards, we say they collect cardboard pictures of men"

“It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops. Today, October 2, a Sunday of rain and broken branches and leaf-clogged drains and slick streets, it stopped and summer was gone.”

Collect for the love of the hobby! I feel that every sport should get a card set documenting it's year, with full season stats on the back.
