    I used to think this way at first, and have even considered spending actual money on digital Topps apps. The most I've spent is the initial 99 cents deal that was offered when I first registered.

    Now I think more like this. I liken digital cards to purchasing and upgrading online games. In the end you have nothing in-hand, but you've passed some time and had fun along the way.

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

    Funny, I think the exact opposite. The fact that you own something vs having a digital image is puzzling to me. Especially when you can search the app for any card they have made and essentially screen shot the card to your phone. I realize that if you have the app and obtain a specific digital card, you do have something that can be transferred, but it is the exact same image as I can get on my phone.

    I guess in the end, we enjoy collecting cards for a variety of reasons. Some for the challenge of the chase. Some for the pride of ownership, especially those pieces that are rare or unique. Some feel the need to complete a run, set or theme (set builders, many of whom fall into the ownership class too). Others just like to look at them as little pieces of art. No matter the reason, we all derive some pleasure out of viewing them and if that is your primary driver, than a digital collection is the perfect answer, but you can even build the greatest collection ever assembled...for FREE, by saving images from the internet!

    I suppose it sounds kinda weird that I have absolutely no desire to collect digital images of cards but I'm completely addicted to filling up my pokedex with images of pokemon (and I've never been into the pokemon universe until I discovered Go).
    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
