MEET DOOLEY NOTED
Q: What inspired you to start collecting cards?A: I love collecting and organizing cards. There’s something very satisfying about pulling a card you’ve been hunting for a long time, adding it to your collection and then being able to see all these cards together.
Q: What are your earliest memories opening packs?A: I remember I used to receive an allowance from my parents when I was 9 for doing all my chores every week. I’d save up that allowance to get new packs whenever I could. Jungle and Fossil packs, mainly. I would sit with my friends at a picnic table in a nearby park to play the TCG and see who had built the better deck. I pulled Sabrina’s Alakazam from Gym Challenge and built a whole deck around it.
Q: What are your favorite TGA slabs so far?A: I have the alternate art Umbreon V from Evolving Skies in the black slab. It looks perfect and it’s a card I hunted for so long.
Q: What is one thing you would tell someone considering TGA to grade their cards?A: I’d tell them TGA is affordable, timely and you can put your own custom flare on your sealed cards. Being affordable, it means you can slab and save cards that mean a lot to you — not necessarily ones that are worth a fortune. Your favorites can be protected.
