Having 3 kids of my own, and coaching various sports, there is very little interest in baseball card collecting from the kids. In fact, I will add that my personal observation is that interest in baseball is declining. I enjoy baseball but it's very difficult to watch on tv and to many kids, moves at a pace that is too slow.
They do collect the Pokemon and Yu Gi Oh cards...you can find sports cards at Target and Wal-Mart but at least around here they are shoved in a corner while the Pokemon cards still sit fron and center.
