I have finally decided to  start a webpage to show off my collection, instead of pointing people to my Photobucket site. Once I got to using Wix.com, it was rather simple to create this page.

 

I started collecting cards back in 2005 I believe it was. Started out that a manager from our Charlotte location was a baseball collector, and when I was up there on a work trip, he gave me a ton of doubles that he had. I sorted through them, and since most were of the 80's-90's variety, I pulled the Rookie Cards and boxed up the rest. I start looking through the rookie cards, and came across several 1997 Fleer David "ARIAS" rookie cards. Noticing that he looked like David ORTIZ, I checked it out and yes, they were his RC. I had 4 of them. 3 were MINT and one was NM with one corner bent a little bit. I started researching them, and came across a site called Beckett, which we all know. Come to find out, these cards booked $70 a piece, and there is where I learned about cards that had autographs, jersey pieces, etc. I was hooked. I traded these cards for football cards, and it was on. I found Sports Card Forum and a few others, where I come to buy and trade, and build up a pretty big collection. Then I find out about hobby boxes and places like Dave and Adam's Card World. Which, I see every time I head back to  the Buffalo area and drive on Transit Road.

 

This lasted many years, until about 2011. I bought some Bills cards from a guy on FCB, and offered me some Bills Memorabilia. Needless to say, I took all he had and  quite a bit of the Bills stuff is from him. THAT got me interested in jerseys. Game used/worn/issued, autographed, etc. Then got into baseball jerseys. The rest is history...
