Stuff about my collection
 
entry Aug 15 2007, 11:49 AM
Just trying this out right now. The plan for this blog (I have a regular blog Kirk's Knook for normal stuff) is to have a blog that just deals with my trading card collection. OK so.

I collect:
Baseball
Football
Hockey (Some)
Non-Sports
CCG (a little)

To some of you it might sound odd, but I am not into all these jersey, game used, balls, bats, pucks, patches, artifacts cards at all. My thinking on this is why chop up something like a jersey into 10,000 little 1 inch pieces when you could preserve the whole thing in one piece? Sure 10,000 cards gives 10,000 collectors a little piece of history, but wouldn't a full jersey be more meaningful? I think this new (releatively new from an old collectors point of view) inovation to the hobby is destroying it, and the memorabilia items they cut up to use for the cards.

I have some Basketball cards from the 70s that I am looking to either sell or trade. I will have to list them soon. I would want either Baseball or Football in return.

In the Non-Sports Arena my big search right now is for a card from the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves set by Topps #72 from the 88 card test set (I have all the rest of the set, which I got through Ebay, but that card was missing the seller didn't realize it was missing). I could get another set, which I might end up doing if I can't get it indiviually, but searching for one card is more fun.
