  3. Time for a Step Back...

  5. inserts, #/#'d, and miscellaneous cards.....

    Hey everyone,
    I doubt people read my blog, but I will continue to voice my opinion on issues and topics of the hobby, as I see fit.

    Oh, and like always, smok'm if you got'm.....

    I have been collecting for 18 years, at first it was football, then baseball, then basketball..... but now I have settled on just collecting baseball. My thing is that in thse 18 years, I, like many other collectors, have seen the dramatic changes that have occurred since the start. ...
