Just joined this site last month, haven't had a lot of time to do a lot on it yet but I am making progress!
Currently I am collecting specific players: Charles Barkley, Randall Cunningham, Tony Romo, and Lenny Dykstra. Most of the cards I have accumulated I have done so when I was younger and have been out of collecting for the most part for the past 5-10 years. I am now starting to get back into it but with more autograph and memorabilia work. This past weekend I was lucky enough to meet and get a baseball signed by Lenny Dykstra (I had already gotten a card and an 8 x 10 of him from before) and would like to try to at least meet my other favorite players. Randall Cunningham has a private signing coming up and I am debating on whether to pull the trigger on that. I also have been collecting current 76ers autographs as I have always been a huge basketball fan and I really enjoy watching them play despite them being sub-par the past couple years. I have a mini plush basketball signed by several from last year (Spencer Hawes, Nick Young, Arnett Moultrie) as well as a 8.5 x 11 picture signed by some this year (Michael Carter Williams, Nerlens Noel, Evan Turner, as well as coach Brett Brown). I'm trying to get this one filled with as much of the team as possible.
I have tons of cards from all four major sports spanning from 1986-2000 and am going to try and post as many of them in my inventory as I can so I can start making some trades to build my collection as much as possible for those four players. I have about 10% of all of Charles, 4% of Dykstra 2.5% of Randall, and I have just started collecting Romo.
For anyone looking at this, let me know if you need/have anything and we can try getting something done!
