Hello, I was curious if anyone feels like I do? I see the way way technology is going towards the future with physical discs, tapes etc. Do you guys think this will ever happen to our hobby? Cards & Stickers ? I really hope it never does probably never will just not a big fan of all this digital era we have going on.

I don't think stickers and cards will be replaced by their digital counterpart. I mean, there's a kind of magic in opening a packet and gluing the stickers one by one in your album, and that cannot be replaced by a software. Maybe they can coexist, like they do in some way nowadays (the virtual album have less stickers and can be filled with stickers you can get with the codes inside packets).

I think the same happens for books. It's because both are non-massive hobbies (let's be honest, most people nowadays spend more time doing other activities rather than reading a book). But there will always be people who consider them cult activities. I would include vinyl discs, too, but it's harder to say because music is not actually a physical "thing", it will always be virtual regardless of the support format (vinyl, CD, casette, mp3, etc.).

For some reason I thought I responded to your message haha. I feel like you explained everything perfect! The future for digital media is already happening, but for stickers/cards it's like an art for some people, For others that are fan of the sport or just like stickers in general just love to open a packs of stickers. The smell the album the design of the packets the players with excessive long name haha it's something that kinda makes you feel it's part of you. I like digital for certain things BUT NOT for my stickers!
