Greetings from the 'Cuse!
Hey guys (and gals),
I've been reading this forum for a long time and finally decided to join. I'm from Syracuse, NY, and mainly collect autographed cards and 8x10s. My major weakness at card shows is dealers with monster boxes of $1 cert cards. I'd always rather spend $50 on 50 guys I saw play in college or the minors whose 'graphs I haven't yet gotten, than on one HOFer. I'm also working on getting the entire 1985 Fleer and Fleer Update baseball sets signed (about 120 cards away in the regular set, which gets harder as guys pass on or become HOFers).
My favorite teams are the Blue Jays, Seahawks, Ottawa Sens, and of course all my local teams (SU Orange, the Chiefs, and Crunch).
I'm not a fan of encapsulated/graded cards or really thick cards (mostly because I store my autographs in binders). Or Yankees fans (just kidding, most of you aren't as evil as the empire you support).
COLLECTS: -signed base cards from 2011, 2012 & 2013 Topps Heritage Minors
-inexpensive cert cards from ALL sports
-auto'd 8x10s of baseball, basketball, & auto racing
