That is actually sad, in a totally self-centered sort of way, thinking of all the time and effort (not to mention money) put into it, and to have it wane because no other reason than "it is getting boring". Not saying that is you exactly, but I think about that for guys who have virtually collected everything there is to collect... for Gwynn, I can't imagine that would happen unless I win the lottery! Glad to se eyou around somewhat still, and maybe something will spark you back full force! (The no-logo, Donruss, multiple-parallel crap not doing for you either, huh?)
Its not that its "boring", its just too damn expensive. The new cards (from last i looked) were mostly rehash of old cards, just different colored and with different numbering. For a while there, i put what spending money I had into getting autographed baseballs from players I used to watch up to now, but even that has taken a back seat. Sometimes priorities just change.
