Talking New guy from Upstate NY

Hi all - new guy from update NY. Started doing research on the hobby last summer by reading books on the hobby and stumbling across the cardboard connection podcast, ended up getting back into the hobby after many years of being away.

Still figuring out exactly what I collect, but as of right now - Kyle korver basketball cards, R.A Dickey baseball cards, various hand selected Star Wars hits (finally got my jabbas palace sail barge and ewok fur each for under $25!) and I'm going to try and collect a ginter base set as well as some of the inserts this year. Also I'm very Interested in high end basketball as wells s bowman chrome, but I'm still trying to figure out all the different types of refractors and what not

I should note the research I did last summer was due to the fact I run independent record label that putss out vinyl records for smaller indie bands (runs usually press less than 1000) and there are many similarities between both hobbies (9pout of a run of 500 records, 400 may be on black 100 on color vinyl) and I was curious about cards, what was going on and missed that feeling of "opening a pack"

I may or may not be working on a cool cross over product. Who knows

Glad to be here, been lurking for a bit and seems like a nice group!

Yeah I have a really hard time walking into the mall to go to a card shop. Something about the shops I used to go to being on main street that really appealed to me, ya know?

Someday I would love to open a trading card / record store. Nice atmosphere. Place you could go sit down, bust open a box, listen to some good tunes and just relax ya know?

I don't think I've been to Eastview in a while. Maybe I'm getting it mixed up with another one, but I go to the mall near Wal Mart and Best Buy (I think those are the stores) and it's right off a VERY busy street. There's a sports store in that mall and I believe it's called Collector's Paradise.

Are there any other good sports shops in Rochester? I visit from time to time to see some family that live there.
