White Sox Collecting

Hello everyone
This is my first go around with this blog stuff so here goes.

I started being interested in Baseball cards back in the fifties.
As a farm kid late in 1954 while visiting my cousin in town I still remember seeing the the 53 Musial on one of the stacks of 53 bowmans on his kitchen table.
I then started buying 5c packs of Bowman in 1955. The second pack I got the first card was Nellie Fox, being a White Sox fan, I was hooked but like many others lost interest as I grew older. Around 1987 my son was six and I started bringing home packs of topps. We started going to shows and in 1993 started team collecting rather than sets. He with Cubs I with White Sox. I'm still at it.

Here's my White Sox Web Page with lots of pics, links and stuff:

and here's the White Sox part of my photobucket:

Thanks for you interest and good luck in your collecting.
