Bookstooge Got’s Sol!

Earlier this year I gave my A History of …… Magic the Gathering. Since that time, because I’ve pretty much given up on playing, I’ve slowly moved into the collectible side of things.

The above picture features all the Revised Sol Rings I’ve bought since that last post. While they say things can’t buy happiness, these have certainly brought a level of enjoyment that I don’t get from buying groceries.

So if cardboard pictures don’t make you happy, then buy yourself a bag of chips and cry me a river. Because I’m just chock full of sympathy right now!

  1. That’s a lot of Sol Ring’s😅😅😅 I used to love Magic the Gathering. I played it a lot at school. In fact there were days were classes had already ended and we stayed at school for hours on end to play Magic. Good times. The fun got ruined a bit because of mr. Suitcase, but overall this is still a really fantastic game😊

          1. Yeah, I’m someone who doesn’t mind losing at all. The game is a lot of fun. But against players like that, it’s really not enjoyable to play. They have an answer for everything, and that really eventually ruined the game for me. That said: I still have the cards, and I love the collecting aspect of the game as well 😀

        1. I am not trying to buy them all out, just a bunch. It is the equivalent of buying a specific baseball card of a player you like from a specific series.

          I would love to buy them all, but with hundreds on the market, ranging from horrible condition to near mint and from prices of $5-$45, that’s just not feasible. I am collecting the light play to near mint versions with my “fun” money.

          If they do become more valuable, I probably won’t sell them. Kind of like hoarding I guess?

  2. There is totally zero joy to be found in buying in groceries! I very much agree with that! I was collecting Paddington books and Harry Potter stuff all summer and that brought me some happy days! Vital to find something fun this year with everything going on!

  3. I don’t think I ever owned multiple copies of the same thing, not at this level anyways hahaha I do prefer collecting the same thing but in different editions though, e.g. various copies of The Killing Joke graphic novel. But I’m with you. Sometimes a little bit of happiness can indeed be bought! 😀

    1. Outside of MTG, I would never do something like this. Even with the comic cards I collected in the 90’s, once I had the set, that was it. Good move on my part too, as that whole fiasco fell apart like wet cement. The cards are worth less than when I initially bought them 😀 Even the original Marvel Masterpieces by Vallejo…
