I have been hoarding cards for the last 30 years.

Notice that the word collecting was not used...

I have more player collections, rookie hot lists, and partial sets than the Braves had problems this past year. It is now time for a change.

Having had a couple of weeks to think about things and a business trip this past week where I read and studied a lot away from email and my computer, I came to some conclusions as to my collecting future. Going forwards, it will be my mission to complete all Topps Baseball Base sets from 1970 to current and Upper Deck Base Sets from 1989 to Current. I may add Bowman at a later time. I have a large chunk of this done already but still have plenty of work to complete the job.

With over 600,000 cards at the present, that leaves me with a few extras....I plan to trade and sell off the excess to fund the finishing up of what I have already started.

I am by no means leaving, I am just starting to "collect". My wife and I are now looking at expanding our family and a new home with more space. For some reason, new future family members keep winning over space that is currently occupied by baseball cards. For some strange reason, my wife votes for more family space and less cards and says that my vote is nullified for lack of credibility..... In seriousness, I do want to continue the hobby, I just have to have some better guidelines. I will continue my Chipper, Andruw and Baby Braves but will part with a lot of the others such as Giles, Maddux and Sheffield, etc.

I will be separating into player lots first and then into team lots with the remaining cards that do not fit player lists.... I will be posting want lists as soon as possible as to what I need and want to trade for what I need but will gladly sell what I have if you need it and cannot help me from my lists... This will take some time to get organized but in the long run will certainly be worth it.... Until the first list is posted smile.gif .......

WOW! The first step is admitting...LOL 600,000 pieces!?!! Just...well, WOW!
Your collection sounds amazing!
Those goals sound pretty steep, but it also seems like you're a good bit of the way home, already.
Good luck in your new direction!

Wow that sounds tough, but exciting....if you sit on those 70s cards for another 25 years they will be worth triple what you paid for them! Probably a smart decision.....


I collect all cards of Ernie Sims (77/460=16.74%), Brett Favre (321/11536=2.78% :P), and Alando Tucker (14/398 = 3.51%)

I guess I should call this more of a new direction than a new collection... Everyone keeps saying good luck...it is the hunt that makes the find.... I have all the easy sets in check in a sense... If it is 36 years of Topps sets, I am thinking I have 17-18 of those complete and 80-90% of 6 or 7 more..... I will have a checklist posted as to what I have and what I need, a report card if you will....of the 17 Upper Deck sets, I have 7-8 of those complete and have some real work to do beyond that....

Hi Ty,

Have fun with your new endeavor, quite a challenge. One that I have been working on for years myself. I also have Donruss and Fleer in the mix as well. If you need commons, please send me a list, I have tons. I mean it, tons! Although not much early to mid 70's, but lots of 80's, 90's 00's for Topps and UD base sets. Maybe we can bouce doubles off of each other to complete these sets.

Again, let me know #'s and I'll get you what I can.

yea you know for those chippers you listed from my tradelist, if you have bagwells, im sure you heard that already for what id like in a trade but astros stars cards id like too, if you have the late darryl kile, billy wagner, biggio, even some new guys if thats the majority of your cards, berkman, ensberg, burke, lidge... but i could help you with those player or team lots if you can find them.


{a simple collector, a simple baseball guy}the value my cards hold for me is serving as mini time machines, by looking at them they become a portal to my past that i can relive anytime i want to remember.
