Hello! I am new to card collecting, and I really enjoy it so far. I am collecting the old Neopets TCG.

Thank you for the welcome! The forums seem a bit slow.

Yeah, there isn't really much to see here Very Happy
On the plus side, you can PM people and responses are usually pretty quick, if you pick those with the green dot as their activity monitor (= who have been online in the past 7 days or less).

Do you have any other tips for a newbie? Smile I think collecting cards is going to be something I really enjoy.

I've only been collecting Pokémon, so I don't know if it applies or not, but what is useful for me is...
1) Never rush buying something! Wait until some time after it's out. You'll save money.
2) Don't rush completing a collection, either. Get the majority of cards, and if you can't get some because they're too pricy, wait again. Chances are they'll be cheaper later on.
3) If you wait too long, though, the price might increase again. So monitor the market and be ready whenever an offer you can't refuse comes up.
That's how I got some really neat cards, including an Espeon* from the POP sets for just $10 Wink
