I'm trying to guage how many veteran card collectors we have on the site and how long you have been collecting for.

If you are over 21 and have been collecting cards for over 3 years please reply and let me know your age and what the first set you collected.

I have a really important reason for needing to know this, if you do fit this criteria please let me know!!!!

:cheers

Hi Tollyman, I'm 26 this year..

The first set of cards I collected (and thankfully completed) should be the Merlin Ultimate Premier League 95/96..
The one with "laser-cut" cards of Shearer and Fowler..

Been out of action with regards to collecting cards & stickers for some time due to the unavailability of them: local stores don't bring them in anymore.. All they sell are Pokemon and Ben 10 and what-nots..

I'll post some pics up when I have the time to dig out my collection from the dark corners of my room..

45 years young. First set Topps Football 1976. Stopped collecting in 1980. Started again in 1994. Collected 90% of everything since then. Also started collecting backwards from then aswell. Also collect loose sticker sets. Couldn't be bothered to stick them in albums, so these are housed in binders loose. Does anyone else do this?

No it wasn't aimed at you. I was laughing because I am a female and have recently turned 30. A colleague at work said it to someone when they asked me how old I was!

41 last week. I started collecting the old Topps cards late 70's I think with the chewing gum, I think I got a couple of sets can't remember, no idea where they ended up. I also used to keep the Panini stickers, again no idea where they went.

Then I got into collecting programmes but always kept West Brom cards, stopped with the programmes a few years ago and then came back into cards about 4 years ago collecting Spanish cards only and the England World Cup cards being the first one i've completed but I am now going back to the Shoot Out and first Match Attax sets as well as thinking about trying to complete the World Stars sets from the various countries but thats just at the thinking stage at the moment

48. My first set was the FKS Wonderful World of Soccer Stars in Action 1969/70 sticker collection. Collected most cards and stickers up to 1978 when I started to collect programmes. Went back to cards / stickers in 1990 filled the gaps between 1978 and 1990 and now collect most card and sticker collections.
