For cards, it's “The older you get, the less you want/need”.

Pete, you have just made me feel a little less crazy. I feel the same way. It is easier than opening the safe, getting out the cards, etc.. And you can zoom-in too!

I have found that the journey/search is more enjoyable, for the most part, than the destination.

There are, however, certain cards that I've been searching for for sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo llllllllllllooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggg, that I've really had it with the continual dead end. I just want the damned card!!!!!!

When I was collecting the '65 Topps set it was about the journey. That's why I sold them about 4 years after I finished.

With the T206 it's both. I love finding cards that I want and owning them.
