My first roommate in college "got back into this" when I was a freshman. Spent about 550$ on cardboard crack within a few months. Then had his mom send out his old cards from CT, and shit got fucking real, because that dude had a damn Lotus card that everyone gawked over.
I had to leave my pad back then because it got way too obnoxious listening to those guys geek out. It was like 7th grade Pokemon cards all over again. Instead of CHARIZARD it was JAYCE THE ANAL RAPER! or whatever the fuck...
Have a nice day, Bluename.
