Crease my a$$
Sure, I wish my cards weren't creased, but it's still cool to own cards that I wouldn't think I'd ever have. I remember flipping through card magazines as a kid, mentally taking pictures of these Hall of Famers on iconic card designs. These types of cards were for other people, not me. They were meant for the expensive glass display case at the card shop, not for my collection.
Yet, here it is, now sitting alongside other beat up Yankees, each one bringing a smile to my younger self, knowing that I have grabbed another card that once seemed like a pipe dream.
Will I ever upgrade these cards? Maybe. But that's for another day. In the meantime, I'm going to keep assembling this army of creased cardboard, because it's more fun to have them than not, no matter what condition they are in.
