No, really. What is a PC?
I've seen it referred to in two ways. First is a player collection, and that I can understand. I have some of those.
The way I see it referred to more often is a personal collection.
This isn't quite as clear to me. Isn't every collection a personal collection? I mean, other than a collection of extra cards you want to trade away, or that collection you're building to open your own eBay or retail store.
I look at my various collections. Most of them are defined, and in my mind, fun. All the Upper Deck Heroes cards ever issued. Women on Sports Cards. Diamond Kings. Awards and Leaders. But they're mine. Aren't they personal?
I used to collect Braves cards. I'm sure I still have most of them - Braves team sets or near-team sets from the '80s and early '90s. Would those be personal collections?
When I think about it, I would guess a personal collection is that group of cards that you feel you can't live without - the ones that really mean something to you. Fuji recently asked about the personal collection that means the most to you, and mine has to be my autograph and memorabilia collection. It's a collection of my favorite athletes and movie stars on cardboard. These are the cards I most want to display, even though I haven't shown any of them yet on the blog.
So my questions to you, this week: What is a personal collection? What is/are yours? What makes it so personal?
I'll send one random commenter a nice little prize. As before, feel free to pimp on your blog, but it won't get you an extra entry. You have until Monday evening to comment.
