So Im not as active on the forums these days, probably wont be until August. Mostly to concentrate on other interests of mine, but Ive always got time to teach the hobby to others. So during my "sabatical" from the hobby, Ive managed to take on another person wanting to learn the ins and outs of the hobby and the different avenues and methods to getting ones personal collection bigger, or at least manage to make it something to constantly stare at in their case. For the record, this friend
As a wanna be super-collector, and with Semyon Varlamov being my attempted super-collection, Im finding now that Ive hit a bit of a dry spell as far as coming into his cards. As I look through the checklist I have typed out, with the help of Beckett's Card Database(if there isnt a card on their database please let me know so I can add it to my own), Ive hit the dryspell because now, though there is still a few base and inserts I dont have, Im starting to come into alot of the short prints as to

Marked today, December 15, as the day I began to collect Football....again. I originally started in the NHL Lockout year(2004), and that maybe lasted for all of 6 months. Where all the old FB cards I used to have, I dont even know.
