|1989 SI For Kids - CheckOutMyCards.com|
Sports and playing on computers both moved into my life, and my book reading slowed down. I forgot about SI for Kids, and while my card collecting interests were strong throughout my high school years, I never thought about the magazine.
When I returned to collecting in 2003, one of the first collections I started was Women in Sports. Searching for cards on eBay brought me to SI for Kids cards on a frequent basis, which inspired me to subscribe in 2005.

These things aren't easy to come by. It seems that investors hoard them hoping one of the younger athletes hits it big and the card can then be sold for a profit. This doesn't work as well with major sports, but when a star like Nastia Liukin or Lance Armstrong is popular, the only truly authentic cards tend to be from SI For Kids. Perhaps they expect to have the next $100,000 Tiger Woods card in their mailbox. I have 53 of the approximately 265 issues that have been issued so far. I'm mainly in need of issues before 2005, and I'm only interested in full issues or uncut card sheets. Let me know if you have any for trade!
