Hi everyone, new to the site
Hi guys, wanted to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Danny and I live in Florida. I started collecting cards when I was 14 and I'm 39 now and still have a passion for the hobby. Really, this is partly my reason for joining this site. I've read recently how our hobby has been suffering and slowly but surely dying for this reason or that reason. I want to do my part to help card collecting survive and thrive. The only way I can think of doing this is participating in the hobby by adding to discussions, showing off my collection, making trades and helping others with their collections. The other reason for joining is to find more trading partners. I figure the more people know what I'm looking for the better the chances are that I will find someone who has it.
I am currently most active on Beckett. I use the Organize system there to track the cards in my collection. By reading a little bit I understand there is a similar system in place here. I don't know, maybe someone can answer this, if I have to have my cards in the inventory to be able to trade or if I could just list in a thread what I have to offer.
I collect Griffey, have a decent vintage collection, and am getting really close to finally finishing my 2008 Goudey Memorabilia set. I've also decided for no particular reason to build a 2000 Ultra Gold Medallion set. I prefer to buy singles rather than boxes, I believe it's a better way for me to spend what money I have on cards. I do love opening packs though, I just try to limit myself with them.
Well, that's that. See ya around

Very nice to meet you Danny. Welcome to SCF. Griffey Jr. is my favorite baseball player and I look forward to seeing your collection. If you need anything or have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
