I began collecting at four years old, and have been on-again/off-again doing so ever since.
What I am primarily interested in would be Hall Of Famers. I really enjoy the Certified Auto and Game Gear cards. They were unavailable 'in the day'. I am a Cubs fan, but that doesn't mean I want every Aramis Ramirez or Jeff Samardzija card you have. When it comes down to it, I'd prefer a serial numbered Star card to a Jersey card of a common.
The Holy Grail I refer to iswhat usually sends me away from collecting for months or years. It would be nice (on a budget) to have a network of traders that, whether they have similar collecting goals or not, are compatible. I'm more than willing to ship base cards (stars, commons, and rookies alike) of the team of their choice to someone if I get something of value in return. Serial number cards of low-demand players, minor premium cards, pretty much anything to justify the shipping cost. Base commons end up curbside eventually, so I'd really enjoy finding outlets for them. I'm willing to ship other stuff to get it done, but I have to get something of value in return
Check my pages. Let me know if anything catches your interest. Be forewarned, I have no time for people who offer me garbage for quality. The lasttime someone pulled that trick, both of us were very unsatisfied. So, just don't.
