Overwhelmed new guy from 'Hollywood South'
Hi everyone, new to this site but not to forums or b/s/t in general.
I have not been involved in the hobby for a VERY long time. I heavily collected basketball cards in my early teens focusing primarily on Penny Hardaway.
I had a very impressive collection considering my location and lack of availability. I pretty much stopped collecting after I had all my cards stolen(for a 2nd time) and lost interest in basketball in general.
I have recently rekindled my relationship with collecting but exclusively with baseball now.
I have found that the hobby is quite different than when I was a kid and I am a little intimidated at how high end things have become.
I consider myself a low end collector as I truly have little to no interest in autos, patches, sparkly things, etc. I enjoy base cards...especially Heritage, GQ and A&G.
I am currently trying to finish the 2012 Panini Triple Play set to put aside for my son in a few years to introduce him to the hobby.
Right now my main players of interest/concentration are Trout, Harper, Stanton, Votto, McCutchen and Brian Wilson.
Also, anything LSU baseball and the the New Orleans Zephyrs.
I am very impressed with this website as it offers so much more than what I was expecting when I chose to join a forum.
A little overwhelming but I'm sure I will eventually get the gist of everything. I look forward to it.

penny1fan, It's nice to see another Penny fan. So much of my youth centered around rooting for and collecting everything I could get my hands on of that guy. Seriously, I had it all! I have a couple cards that I just happened to come across stashed away. I will pull them back out and let you know what they are.
I had a very, VERY extensive and impressive collection of Penny cards...my first was stolen and unfortunately after years of rebuilding it, I handed them down to my little brother and they became misplaced.
I just found my Lil Penny dolls recently as well. That was an unexpected trip back down memory lane!
I have often thought about starting another card collection for reminiscence.

Welcome to SCF Ross, enjoy yourself here and have fun adding to your Baseball collection!
I used to have Penny everything growing up. From the sneakers to the jerseys to the t-shirts. I have a pile of his RC's and cool inserts back from when he was a rookie.
