Default New Member from Houston

Hey guys thought I'd swing by here to briefly introduce my self. My name is Stephen, my user name is pronounce like my first and middle name together, Stephen Noah. I'm 21 and live in Houston. I'm a GED recipient and the Bryce Harper of the fire retardant clothing industry. I do a little freelance web and graphic design too and ultimately wish I could do it full time. I have a 9 month old son, having him has changed my life alot. Soon after he was born I realized I would need a hobby that I could practice at my house because with a small child, thats where most of my free time is spent. About 3 months ago I decided to start collecting, it started with the occasional pack or two from target, quickly grew to blasters, and now I mainly buy singles off ebay and rip the occasional hobby box at a LCS i found 20 minutes or so from my house. My biggest pull so far has been a gold refractor auto of Yu Darvish from my first of two bowman jumbo boxes that i had graded at a 9.5. I've been reading these forums for probably a couple of months now, and I really want to be on here to trade and maybe take part in a case break or two. I probably would have kept procrastinating on signing up but pulling my Darvish card has put sort of an impetus on it, because I am in fact going to try to sell it. So expect another post from be in the Buy/Sell forum soon.

I PC anything Astros and Rockets, specifically Jose Altuve. Other players i collect are BJ Upton, Matt Purke, Gary Payton, and Ryan Anderson. I really like 90's inserts and also am trying to complete a few parallel sets.

I dont know if theres anything i've left out, but i look forward to meeting the community here and also towards becoming a reputable and respected member myself.

Welcome I live in Houston also! looking forward to Tristar. I wanted to get an auto from RG3 but he charges way too much. Thinking of getting one from Deion Sanders we'll see.
