Realized that I need more time to update my collection. I have cards still needing to be catalogued that might fill in some of my "wants". Also need to get a better handle on my storage system. Misisng some cards people want to trade for. My estimate is I only have 30% of my collection in the database. I'll open it back up after the new year. In the meantime, if you see a card or two you really have to have and can't wait, shoot me a message.

Going to take some time to get my collection organized. To be honest, I don't know what I have, what I want to collect and what I want to get rid of. This site has given me the push I needed to organize things. I am trading but not everything (maybe 50%) isn't recorded. I plan on trying to focus on just baseball, football and non-sports going forward. That's why i haven't added most of my basketball cards yet. I like oddball items, not just cards...sport coins, medallions, etc. Please bear with me...

When trying to evaluate a trade offer, I use the database median prices as a guideline to gauge fairness of the offer. I don't have to have $4$, especially if I see something that I think is cool. Always willing to overpay for something I really want but not for cards just to fill up a set. Does that make sense?

Collecting: I'm mostly a set builder, focusing on baseball, footband and non-sports (movies and superhero type cards).

- Always had a soft spot for holograms.

- Prefer smaller sets to the mega series of earlier days. 900 card sets? Meh...

- Just got back into modern set building and I'm really liking Topps Allen & Ginter sets, although the gazillion subsets and variations is confusing/annoying.

- Really don't have true "favorite players" or teams. Gravitate towards Red Sox and Patriots but I don't fixate on them anymore.

- upgraded my Mac to a new MacMini and need to re-install scanner drivers, etc. Have some cards missing in the DB and I'll spend a day or two scanning once it's up.

Back to sorting cards and updating my collection online...
