Default I've come to a crossroads in collecting

I posted this in another forum as well. I just want to get everybody's viewpoints on this.

So this fall I begin college and know I won't be able to buy/sell/trade cards very well from there. The only way I'll be able to buy is if I sell cards that I have, and I would really like to add to my PC. Right now I collect Twins and I'm really after Mauer, Span, and Liriano. I've been considering focusing more and more on Mauer and Span. Right now my Liriano collection is probably the biggest in terms of AU/GU but I haven't really had a drive to get his stuff and I've been wanting to get more and more Span and Mauer stuff. I've also considered moving my Twins GU/AU in order to get more Mauer, Span, and retired players but I'm still unsure if I want to do that, I know my collection isn't that great but it means something to me. Any suggestions?

If Span and/or Liriano get traded today, then that would make it easier to just focus on Mauer lol

If Span was traded, he would still be one of my main focuses, I had the chance of meeting him when the Twins came through on their Winter Caravan one year and he was real humble and polite. Before that he was in my top 2 Twins players lol

Im currently a Senior in college and have had no troubles keeping up with my collection and selling while at school. It really isn't that hard to do, I left my collection at home just to keep it safe and make sure nothing can get stolen, but in terms of keeping up with the hobby you have this forum and ebay to keep you up to date on things. There may also be a card shop close by to your school, be sure to google the state where you are going to school with card shop (i.e. New Jersy Baseball Card Stores) and find out where the nearest one is. If there is nothing local you always have target and walmart to pickup some retail. For selling just find the local P.O. and ship from there.

I hope this helps, and I hope you continue to collect. I think giving it up b/c your going to college will be something you regret.

I agree. Buying/Trading/Selling really isn't that much more difficult in college. Just bring supplies and leave anything super valuable at home.


If you don't mind me asking, where are you going to go to college?

I hope you can figure out what is best for you. I couldnt imagine not collecting. Hopefully everything will fall in line for you and this forum should be able to help you continue. There are some great guys on here that are willing to help on advise, great prices and fair trades. I am not in school and am self employeed, and let me tell you, money is scarce in my house right now. If it werent for the guys on this forum, I would not be able to accomplish my collecting goals either.

I'm definately not gonna give up collecting, but I'm going for pre-med and gonna be playing football. I'm just thinking of focusing my collection more towards Mauer and Span, and picking up some Twins cards I see that I really like along the way. I'm going to Chadron State College in Nebraska. Its an hour away from I live, smaller DII school. I'm planning on keeping up with these forums the whole time, whenever I can I'm always on the forums. I've never lived in a town with an LCS, this forum is pretty much my LCS. I've really started leaning towards eliminating my Liriano PC, except for an auto or 2. I've also thought about going for more Carew cards, since he was the first Hall of Famer I ever got an auto and GU card of, plus, for being a hall of famer he is relatively cheap

You should be able to continue to collecting while in school.

I am interesting in what you have of Liriano. Send me a PM with what you might want to move.

Is there a question in there? Are you asking what you should collect? Or are you advertising what you are selling?
