However, that is a good cheap way to start card collecting.

One other tip, buy entire box and not individual packs, this will guarantee you get valuable cards. And remember sets sets sets are what traders want, not the individual players.

Trying to collect and put together individual sets is definately NOT the way to go. Alot has changed since 90, Upper deck is pretty much the only card maker right now, they literally have dozens of different sets, in various price ranges. You no longer collect to build a set, people collect the memorobilia cards, the jersey cards, auto's, rookies and patches. If your trying to get back into the hobby, go off ebay and buy some hobby boxes. Check out the upperdeck website to see what's new, and what kind of bang for your buck you can expect out of each set. There was also a good thread about this in the lounge, there were alot of hardcore collectors who could answer your questions.

edit: here's the thread.
