Long Story Short

Rate this Entry
2010 has brought me back to baseball card collecting for the fourth time. I started when I was a kid, collecting Topps from 1976-1985. Got back into it in the boom period of the early 90s, then sold the whole collection after I moved from New Jersey to Oregon. I collected a few more sets between 2003 and 2007.

When I heard about the Topps promotions this year, I found myself caught up in the nostalgia again. I also spent a month back in Jersey caring for my mother, so I kept myself entertained by building the 2010 set. I knew I was hooked again when I could not resist taking advantage of KMart's deep discounts on 2008 Upper Deck.

Now that I am back in Oregon I have organized everything that I've started this year and everything I left unfinished 3 years ago. I found the Baseball Card Forum two weeks ago and have already started filling holes in my sets via trade. I have always been a base set builder, but I'd really like to finish this year's insert sets as well. I have decided to complete a few insert sets from years past and use the rest as trade fodder.

My main interest in the Forum for now is to finish the Topps sets below. I'm working on a few other baseball sets, as well as Topps 2007 Basketball and Football, but will organize that later. Eventually, I will start building individual player collections for some of my favorite players, but I have no interest in becoming a supercollector or investor.

I also have a blog called Sounds Good that you should check out some time. So here's what I'm looking for (*incoming):

    I should also probably mention that I have only just begun buying Topps 2010 Series II, so I won't be looking to trade on that just yet.
