Spurred on by the meteoric rise of YouTube, thousands of collectors are opening packs of baseball cards and sharing the moment with anyone who will watch.

I had been thinking about picking up a pack of the new UFC cards (combining my childhood memories of baseball cards with my current favorite sport) but now I can live vicariously through these guys, and not blow $150/box.

Any cards I really do want, I’ll just head over to the ‘bay and pick them up.
