Default Greetings from Maryland!

Hello everyone! Just recently got back into collecting at the urging of my three sons (yes just like the TV show!). I collected in my younger days, but it kind of tapered off after awhile.

I look forward to meeting and interacting with many of you on here while trying to help my boys build each of their collections. We have a lot to learn ....

Thanks again to those who I have already traded IM's with!

Peter

Welcome and have fun with sharing the hobby w/ your boys. There is a lot of good info on here, and some very good sellers and traders. You'll learn your way around fast.

Who do you guys follow? What sports?

Welcome... If I may ask, how old are your sons?

Default Thanks for the welcome!

My boys are 11, 7 and 4.

The oldest is a bigtime SD Chargers and SD Padres fan.....he was born in SD and to this day holds it near to his heart.

My middle guy is a big Buffalo Bills fan (yes, there actually are Bills fans) and like the Washington Nationals.

My youngest is just getting into football and other sports. He roots for his old mans team, the NY Giants probably because he doesn't know any better. Same goes for baseball as he will cheer for the Yankees.

All three like the Maryland Terrapins as well! Fear the Turtle.....we go to lots of football games and sometimes a basketball game here and there (basketball is much harder to get tickets).

Do you guys have any kids? If so, do you collect with them?

Peter

I've got two daughters (3 and 1), so not yet but they LOVE common cards. They bend and rip the sh*t outta them... They both look beautiful in their Cowboys jerseys (Witten, of course)

Any good LCS's up by you in Clarksburg? I grew up near Hagerstown/Frederick, and I know of Burton's, but that place is over double BO's prices.

Welcome to the forum!
