The man figured that he could just go to one more store before he went home. At the very least, it would be a good way for him to kill some time before he had to get on his flight. At the time, he had no clue that this spontaneous decision would end up making all of his dreams come true. From the corner of his eye, he noticed a card that shouldn't have seemed different from any other, but it would end up changing his life.

There are people out there who enjoy collecting things, and a lot of the time, there's no limit to what people will collect. Personally, my favorite is collecting books, but collecting stamps, coins, and baseball cards have been popular since the 1840s. Collecting things seems to come pretty naturally to some people, and it's an undeniable fact that collecting certain things can become extremely expensive.

There are certain things that are required to get the most money for your collectibles. The first thing to remember is that the item must be pretty rare because the more uncommon an item is, the more money that it's worth. Also, the item has to be in perfect, or near perfect, condition. The age of the item is also pretty important, as well. It's also the most exciting aspect of collecting things to many people.
