Default Rookie card collector from SC.

Well, everyone else was announcing where they where from and I am a sheep, so bahhhh.


I actually have been collecting baseball cards since before I could remember. However, it was not until last year that I discovered the online world of blogs and boards where folks not only discussed cards, but actually traded them and bought them. I added new words to my vocabulary like hobby box and blasters as well as learning the difference between series 1 and 2. Before where cards where shoved in a shoe box to be forgotten, I now have a table set up in my room just for baseball cards. I have binders, penny sleeves and boxes set up that are designed for baseball cards. I have traded cards with people from all across the Great US of A and even with our neighbor to the north.

Of course there are cards still laying about everywhere. In the car, in the truck, under the bed, the bathroom, the kitchen, the living room and I still keep telling myself to go through all my Braves and sort by player alphabetically. I am far perfect, but my love of cards is stronger than ever. The first stop in any retail store like Target or wally world is the card isles and is hard for me not to buy at least one pack of cards when I go. Blogs and boards about cards are the first place I go when I go online and often times the last. Addict is a word you could use. Cardaholic is another one.


I am set builder, although I do collect individual players and any Atlanta Brave cards. I am die hard Brave fan and my all time favorite player is the guy Met fans love to call LAAAARRY.

I guess that is all, or well... enough.

Welcome!

Good to see someone on the other side of the country that calls Wal-Mart 'Wally World'

I am also a retail buyer and if you need any help with sets and have a list, I'd love to make a deal with ya. Have Braves too

I wish I could go to a hobby shop, but the nearest ones seem to be three hours away or more. Hoping to get to one in Atlanta soon. Maybe catch a game as well.

I definitely need help with sets (I really need to update the lists first though). I'll look you up.

Yeah, my hobby shop is on the other side of town, which is 'bout 40 minutes. Target's right down the street. PM anytime
