"I wouldn't say you're my favorite person, but you are my least favorite person" -Donna
yep. I've held off on selling them, as they are still very desirable so they i will let them appreciate more. They are too good to play with the people I typically play with. I couldn't play in tournaments. Those are the asshats I despise, and what led me to quit the first time around.
I used to play. I actually was pretty decent too, especially at the drafts and stuff. I won a few relatively big tournaments But then I got a life midway through high school and sold all my valuable cards. Still have boxes and boxes of it in my closet.
I played in Middle School (IIRC). I really enjoyed it. I thought it was dead until I saw kids playing it in college. I always wanted to go play a game with them, but I was always drunk at like 2am when I saw them. Plus, I didn't have any cards.
Since you made me think of it, I used to have this card that I was saving. I thought it was worth $200 at the time. I always saved it because when I was a kid I thought it would be like one of those rookie baseball cards that ended up being worth thousands. Just looked it up, apparently a decade later it's only worth $8. Damn.

Take that, other people's joy!

When I was in college I always thought that was the point where everyone stopped caring about jocks/nerds/cool kids etc, stopped judging other people, and just became adults, but I guess that's not the case anymore.
i played between 95-97. I had some pretty good cards and i'm pretty sure they are in storage. Where could I sell them?
One of my HS friends played and won the US National Championship. Won decent amount of prize money. Maryland alum too.
I was never into Magic but I definitely played the games where you painted little metal and plastic figurines and fought battles with them using dice.
Then I turned 13 and hooking up with girls became a realistic activity and I quickly forgot about all that. Of course now that I'm older and engaged I have the money to afford all the "cool" models I couldn't back then and I'd probably enjoy playing. Although remembering all the weirdos that hung out at those gaming shops back then kind of makes that a little scary.

eBay or any game store.
That's cool, mind giving a name?
Damn, that's awesome. Apparently I should have beaten up nerds and stolen their cards.
I always remember being intrigued by the game, and I looked into playing briefly. The only people in my school who played though were soooooo awkward I just couldn't get into it. If more people in my friend group had played I'm sure I would have probably enjoyed it.
i made bank as a little manatee buying packs and packs of fake pokemon cards in OC and coming home and selling the holographic cards to the little dorks of my neighborhood.
im sorry i was confusing...your "Superbowl" was the Redskins losing since you know that the Ravens cant win it all.
magic sucked because i couldn't relate to any of the other kids that were into it. my brother was kind of a nerd and he played but i could never get into it. i liked MLB Showdown which was a trading card game that allowed you to form your own baseball team with MLB players and play against other people.

Holy fuck I think I have a thousand of the beta edition cards. They are stored away at my inlaws. I can't wait to check them out. I loved playing in high school but stopped when I went to college.
I think sublime went to damascus (how do I remember something like that???) and my googlr search says the 98 national champ from damascus hs was matt linde
(I am pooping and have nothing better to do than research that and then post it)
I railed against magic but I was a pretty big Pokemon and then yugioh kid until I was 11. I went back a few years ago to see what Pokemon cards I had only to find out my little brother had raided my old binder and traded away my old cards for crap
That was amazing for like a year but it never really caught on
"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
woops, just realized i said like instead of liked. yea, it was only around for a few years. it was incredible, though.
A ton of big names in poker now used to play Magic. I remember playing against David Williams and Brock Parker in tournaments before they got to be big names on the poker scene.
yep, i have heard that.
i think you give adults too much credit. people on this board are afraid to admit that they eat at mcdonalds because they'll look unsophisticated. "what other countries think of us" has been a talking point in presidential campaigns. people like to think they change when they get older, but they don't change very much.
Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
That episode of Freaks and Geeks when James Franco goes to play Dungeons and Dragons with the nerd kids is awesome.
