    Hello from Texas

    Hi, I'm 15 and a "card" collector. I say that because not all my cards are sports cards I have a few NASCAR cards and Country Gold cards. Other than that, I have baseball, football, hockey, basketball and I think that's it. I want 2010 Topps Chrome baseball or football cards because I have about 5000 cards that about 20 years old (hence my name) that are not really so much my style. The only older cards I want are Topps 1952 to 1977, other than that, nothing much really. If you want any specific cards from the Fleer 1990 baseball, I'm your guy. Or the Topps 1989 baseball, or 87-88 Donruss', or certain 1977 Topps baseball or 1980 Topps football, or..............(it goes on just a little bit). I do already have some 2010 Topps Chrome baseball cards (96) though. Anyways, that's me.
    There are two ways to respond to a need: Self-Reliance or Compassion. If I scrape my knee, I can get up, clean it and bandage it myself. Or I can ask my friend to help me up and he can get the medicine for me. But one difference between the options is choice: I choose by my own will to get up and help myself, but my friend has to be willing to help me in order for the Compassion side of things to work. And that's the thing right there: You can't force compassion. People are either willing to help you when you need help or they aren't, but you can't make them help you.

    thanks man. there are some people on this board who already are burning me on how it's not a special card and that it's nothing. i don't care what they say though, because it's cool to me.
