Hello,
Been reading the forums for a few weeks and decided to join. I haven't collected for about 20 years, and with the release of the 2012 Topps Strata football, I decided to inch my way back in. I mainly collect football and baseball jerseys, however I thought this may be more satisfying and (possibly) rewarding for myself and my 5 year old son. We LOVE Bo Jackson so, to pull anything autographed by him would be great.

I'm mainly joining because I have no idea where to start, and am looking for some advice. I bought a hobby box of Strata from ebay that I busted today and it was a complete DUD. I was shorted a rookie auto and pulled a Robert Turbin relic a Dwayne Allen Clear Cut Auto Relic, and a Jarius Wright Die Cut. Looking to make this a great family hobby, our favorite teams are;
NFL - Raiders, Texans, Browns
MLB - Indians.

Any advice on how to get started would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi I am also from north east ohio in bedford, I check the forums every day to do trading and selling stuff. Start small, and have a direction in your collecting. Is it for profit? is it just for family time? is it for specific players? Questions like this will give you direction with where you want to go with the hobby. There are many guys up here in NE ohio that have card shops that love to talk card, I suggest going to one let me know where exactly you are and I will get you the closest shop

thanks for the quick reply. We're not looking to make any money, just want a decent shot at pulling some exciting cards. I live in Warren, OH about 20 mins from Youngstown, I usually tell people I'm in Cleveland because they've heard of it!

Looking to collect mostly Raiders, Texans, Browns. Some Indians stuff as well. I'm a fan of Tebow and Josh Hamilton as well (random I know).

I'd definitely like to get into an actual shop to chat with some people. There's nothing around me that I know of.

Thanks,

Thats cool! yeah the closest to you would be akron, bainbridge, or macedonia. All nice shops but wold have to be in the area for a reason... If you ever just want packs and don't want to buy thme online let me know and I can go to the shop 10 mins from me and send you whatever. I have some Josh Hamilton and browns and indians as well. Let me know if you are interested in any of it and I can send you scans and a price man!

Good luck with the hobby and let me know if you have any questions about anything

Welcome to blowout. My advice would be to start with the cheaper products and work your way up.
