A couple of weeks ago, I was thinking about my blog and collection and how I felt like I was collecting too much stuff and felt like I was all over the place. I made some goals specific for this blog, and now, I'm taking a look at my collection as a whole. I like it when other bloggers post pictures of their collections at home and how they store them. I currently have 7 binders:
Cubs player collections
Royals player collections
Cubs & Royals 1986-current
Non-Royals/Non-Cubs player collections
2012 Bowman Platinum/2012 Topps Update ASG and HRD
My problem is, I feel like I'm running out of room. I would really like to display the whole 2013 Topps set in a binder, as well as start a binder for my catcher collection. My TTM binder is almost exploding, so I need to get a second one for those cards. Plus, I would like to get one more for my NCAA specific baseball and football cards. That puts me up to 11 if I do all of that.
Also, I have a lot of common cards, as well as stars and rookies that are taking up room. I have also cut back on player specific collections. Goodbye Paul Goldschmidt, Mark Trumbo, and Yoenis Cespedes. I am going to try to make trades of these for cards for ones I really want. I would rather have cards that I want taking up room, than cards I don't want. One way to remedy this is by having a contest or two on this blog. I know there are several bloggers out there, like myself, that have favorite teams and want to collect cards of that team.
Welcome to my blog!!!
I have collected baseball cards and autographs over the years. I still have boxes full of cards (as well as newer cards) that are just sitting there. So, I have decided to see how many of them I can get autographed. I use through the mail as my preferred route for this adventure. I also have an account on Zistle for trading purposes (stevienicks77).
I am currently in graduate school, so it may take me until the weekend to respond to trade requests! I can't get done with school soon enough!
