Default Thanks for the memories....

Back in the day, I sold 3 mint cards to help pay for a wedding ring for my first wife.

The cards were a 1957 Topps Ted Williams, Frank Robinson, and a beauty of a 1969 Topps Reggie Jackson.

So I don't have the cards anymore, neither do I have the wife or the ring.....should have just kept the cards as I enjoyed them more.
My new found obsession the t206!

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

Eight OPC Gretzky RC's just after we had our second daughter. Needed the cash at the time.

After Jean-Michel Basquiat died in 1988, I remember thinking this guy is going to be a super important painter and I should buy some of his work.

I didn't.

Been collecting since 69/74/77 depending on when you'd count from.

Sooo many regrets, mostly about not buying things. When I started 52 Mantles hadn't gone over 1000 yet. T206 Hof ers who weren't Cobb were usually $10 in VG, or even a bit better. Topps Orr rookie was 100... 100!! that was insane for a hockey card at the time. Goudey Ruths were around 100. Aaron rookie 60...

I'm going to go be sad and play some games on my phone now....
