Collector Of The Week – Son Inspires Dad To Collect Cards Again

A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We talk about the latest movies, cards, comic books and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.

This Week’s Collector – Collecting Cards Together  

This week’s collection comes from Chris Read. Chris a great dad and has a site called Canadian Dad. He talks about his fatherhood journey and many other cool things. In terms of his collection I love the fact that his son inspired him to start up collecting cards again. Here is what Chris wrote about his collection. 

After a 20 year break, I started collecting again when my son expressed an interest. We started the now quieter Young Guns Breaks channel on YouTube and it was a lot of fun. I have shifted my collecting to more card art these days as traditional card prices have skyrocketed, and I’ve been amazed at how many talented artists there are out there!

Make sure you follow Chris on Twitter at @CanadianDadBlog and check out the YouTube channel at Young Guns Breaks. 

Whatcha Got? 

It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.  If you enjoyed this post you may want to check out an article about a dad getting into comic books in this series for Collector of the Week.

  1. My son is four years old and I showed him my collection when I was a kid. This is something I think I will do with him once he gets a bit older.
