The future of collecting doesn't look good.

We have digital everything. No need for physical DVDs, CDs, Comics, Trading Cards, etc. What are your thoughts on the future of collecting?

Will collectors of tangible good eventually all go extinct? What will ebay look like in the future when it counts on customers buying and selling physical goods? What happens when kids become adults and become nostalgic for digital memories?

The first article asks the question will kids "grow up to appreciate and collect physical objects, or will they be surrounded by nothing but piles of obsolete electronic devices?"

"What does the future hold for comic book collecting?"

The last article reports data from 2015 that shows estimated revenue from digital trading cards in North America reached $329 million.

"Thousands of people are spending money on virtual trading cards that don't actually exist."
