When I collected baseball cards back in the 60s and early 70s, it was inexpensive fun. All cards were sought after and none were overlooked and unwanted because they were "commons".
Today collecting is much different. It's all about a particular cards value or whether it's a "hit" or not. Just watch any YouTube video about opening card packs or boxes. The "common" cards are rushed through and basically ignored. It's all about the"hits" and the status and prestige of owning such cards.
I must be in a small minority of those who enjoy all baseball cards.
It's just a shame that I can't.
