Default Hello from Alabama

New here from Alabama. I have been out of collecting for 15 years or so, but have recently gotten back into it with my 8 year old son. Things have really changed. Feeling a little intimidated by the sheer volume of product out there now. I'm sure I will ask some dumb questions. Please take it easy on me. I would also appreciate any advice on getting the most bang for my buck, considering I am buying for an 8 year old. Thanks.

Just realized this thread had new replies. We live in Dothan, AL. As a child I collected mainly baseball. Now my son and I collect baseball. He is still trying to decide what player(s) to focus on. His favorite team is the Braves. As I said in another thread, he is almost nine, and he still gets excited about any autograph or relic card he pulls. He wants to keep them all. .

Roll Tide!

Dothan, huh ... may as well be in Indiana, that's a 5 hour haul from Huntsville

Welcome ... always feel free to ask questions, just be prepared to be ridiculed by the more obnoxious members here. Seriously though, if you ever have any 'dumb' questions, feel free to shoot me a message. Always willing to help (the father of) a fellow Braves' collector.

I am originally from Bama myself so welcome to you and your son! I really enjoy checking out the boards here as I have recently just gotten back into collecting myself. Although I am an Auburn fan I still enjoy all things from my home state!
