People of a certain age remember when buying, selling or trading sports cards was as much a national pastime as the actual professional sports being played. From getting your hands on a really old card to finding a rare misprint to unwrapping a pack and finding a glossy rookie card of the games’ biggest stars, collecting sports cards was a thrill for kids and adults alike. Although sports card collecting isn’t as big business as it once was, millions of people still have a passion for collecting, buying, selling and trading. Here are a few sports card podcasts to check out if you are an avid collector or are looking to get back into collecting cards.
