Hello all,

Getting back into collecting after many, many years - inspired by my 11 year old son.

Like so many others, I had an insane collection that I built from the ages of 8-14. Then "mom" in her wisdom stepped in and gave them all away while I was off at college (complete sets of Topps baseball several times over from 71-81 by the time I was done). I've since come to terms with it

I really have no killer cards yet, even though my userid implies it. Just got into a half dozen boxes of Bowman Platinum, which I'll detail here - along with some Topps Series 2, a couple A&G, and some Topps Pro Debut.

I grew up a Dodgers fan bleeding Dodger blue, so it was tough when my son became a Giants fan a couple years ago. But with all the shenanigans going on in the Dodgers' organization, it wasn't that hard to go with the flow of the Giants' success last year. Still dig Vin Scully, though, of course! I was a year younger than my kid when the Dodgers finally beat the Yankees in '81, which was a similar thrill!

Best regards!
