Default Been on Twitter for years; now I'm here ...

Hey there. I'm Ben. I'm a California native (Bay Area) and have been collecting since 1987. My primary focus is baseball rookie cards -- all of them. Seriously. I do dabble in other things that are sentimental to me, such as the 2000 Greats of the Games autograph set; 1991-1993 Elite Series inserts, but try to stick to what really keeps me in the hobby -- rookies.

I have a real job, but spend some of my down time writing for Beckett. I'm not really into political rants about the hobby, so save it. I'm a collector who just happens to have a chance to write for the publication I grew up reading. Have issues with the price guide? Contact the price guide folks.

Have questions about me or anything else? Want to know more? You know where to reach me. I'm trying to get acclimated to the message board stuff ... I started this account in 2010 but never used it. Looking forward to using it from here on out.

Thanks for your time.
Ben

Have you gotten to check out Levi Stadium yet? Heard great things about it.

Currently living in Monterey. Gonna go to some of the Stanford and Cal games in that area this season.
