    Why do people collect trading cards?

    I'm just to hear people opinions on why they collect trading cards that aren't card games(like magic, pokemon, yugioh).

    I just don't see the point to buy cards that i can never use again. Somebody please give me some insight

    It's like baseball cards. People just like to have a memento of their favorite stuff/team/show/movie.
    Collector's don't think of it as something you never use. For example, you don't "use" a painting that you hang on your wall, but it can be a conversation piece and something that is nice to look at.

    I agree, its just like sports cards. Or in my case i collect non-sports cards now. I used to be hardkore about sports cards. Sold them all and got into non-sports cards. There is something about being closer to the show or cartoon when you get cards. I'm a huge fan of sketch cards. As an artist I've always been drawn to them (no pun, sorry) because i think of their technique or style.
