    Yeah, my decision to invest in a handful of Acuna & Soto Living Set rookie cards was a foolish one. Those are late 80's/early 90's print run type numbers (okay, maybe not that big but you get my point).

    I should have just picked up one of each for my personal collection....not in quantities of 5-10.

    What's not surprising is that Markakis was the least popular player to date in this set. Ironically, it also makes him the most valuable card in it.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    That's pretty much what I'm doing; collecting this with my youngest son who is autistic and it's fun teaching him and learning with him while being able to spend time together.

    That's really cool and sounds like a nice idea to help bond with your son. My nephew is autistic and while there are many things he doesn't like to do (he relies on a certain daily routine and when that routine is disrupted he'll become very vocal about it), there are certain things that he doesn't just get into, he goes all out (almost obsessive like but not really) and will study this particular hobby of his day and night until he knows everything there is to know. He's really big into history, particularly the history behind all the major wars and at age 9 he knows more about this subject than I'll ever know in my lifetime. Anyway, when he was younger I decided I'd really like to have a relationship with him and his father (my bro) told me he was getting into Star Wars so for his birthday I thought I'd pass on my childhood passion and gave him my entire collection of boxed Star Wars figures (literally 100's of them...some were probably valuable too...before he opened them of course) and that really did the trick. They were visiting for a week and for the entire time he'd sit with me and tell me everything there is to know about this particular character, he'd go on and on and it was pretty awesome. It really took him out of his shell and it got him feeling comfortable around me.

    Does your son see anyone for his autism? My nephew has recently been seeing this therapy specialist and I was really able to notice the results. Sure, he still doesn't go out seeking people to socialize with but when he's pushed enough to play with the neighborhood kids he appears much more comfortable. What kind of cards do you share with him and/or does he enjoy? I've got a bunch of cards that don't do much other than collect dust (Mostly base cards, inserts & parallels) and I could send them your way if interested. Just give me like a rough idea of what would be good.

    Yeah, my son has a routine already and if it's off by even a minute, he melts down. He goes to preschool 4 days a week and on the day he doesn't go, he gets his bookbag and reminds my wife that it's time to go, even though he can't tell time yet. Luckily in that respect, instead of getting upset he just moves on to playing and wanting to watch TV. On top of that, he has therapy 2x a week, occupational and speech. Plus over the summer we had someone come into our house once a week to work with him in his own environment. It's exhausting to say the least but it's definitely helping. He's still nonverbal in a sense, but he is starting to say a word or two out of the blue.

    He hasn't grasped the idea of collecting yet, though he's catching on. Every week when I get the padded envelope from Topps, he knows what it is and hands it to me and sits next to me to watch me open it and go through the cards. I've given him a ton of older cards that were just sitting around and at first he'd rip them apart. Now he's slowly learning to keep them in one piece. Thank goodness for old 80s cards that were massively overproduced!

    I appreciate your offer on the cards; I'll have to pass for now since he's only 3 and still learning about them. Thanks though

    No problem. Yeah, I imagine it's a lot of work having to juggle seeing all these different specialists while at the same time trying not to interrupt his routine. My brother tells me it's a constant learning experience but not just for my nephew, for him too.

    When he was 3 he didn't verbalize much either. For my brother that was sort of the first hint that he may have autism. He speaks more now but generally when it's a topic he's interested in and with someone he knows.

    is $50 really "investing"?

    Not at all...that's like pennies that get lost in the couch cushion type of chump change to a super baller like myself. I spend tens of thousands on BC autos just so I can scribble stuff on their faces and light hundred dollar bills on fire in front of homeless people just for a laugh








    Nah, but seriously it's not a big deal. I didn't buy the Acuna's as an investment, I just wanted a bunch of them cuz I'm a crazy Braves fan who was really excited about the kid.

    All the more reason to buy some, before he is out of the league and no more cards of his are made.
