  1. Amazing things that I have seen. Part 1.

    As a teenager in high school I was very lucky to be a small part of a very good baseball team. Due to an abundance of uniforms I got a spot on the team. I got to take a few "at bats" and play some in the outfield. My biggest contribution to the effort was to help make sure our equipment got back on the bus after the game. Whatever!

  2. Old vs. New


    its round two of this whole blogging thing, and the last blog got 29 views. I was surprised, and I'm sure most of you didnt really care to read it, but like I said, its for the collectors that just might be interested.

I've been able to collect baseball cards since I was old enough to...16 years to be exact. so im not an old timer with wisetales of opening wax packs of 50's and 60's Topps just for the gum and using the 52' Mantle to make my bike sound like a motorcycle.

  5. My Hockey History

    I started collecting in around 1997 when I was 8 years old. I got into the hobby from being a fan of the new team that just came to my home state Colorado. I got into hockey and it became my obsession. My life eventually revolved around it. I played, collected, watched, played fantasy hockey. I grew up in Colorado and started with the Avalanche. I lived in Arizona for a while and went to Coyotes games, mostly when Colorado came to town.
