And vintage has been all I have collected ever since.

My dad was not a sports fan and he did not care for baseball, but he understood value. He was the first to teach me about scarcity and the art of negotiating price. He used to begrudgingly take me around to shows and to every coin shop in the area (buying packs and wax boxes with my saved money). One of these trips he asked if I had any interest in a Ruth card behind the counter sitting by itself. He asked if I would consider having that ONE old card as apposed to some packs of new cards. I deliberated this because to a 9 year old having more is always better. Once I actually held the Ruth I was hooked. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen. He and the dealer haggled over price for quite some time but they finally agreed and I left with a card that is still in my permanent collection.

Great Story Kris - That Ruth is my favorite card! It was so cool when Leon had a Net54 T-Shirt with it!

I started collecting baseball cards in 1978. My grandmother bought me my first pack as a 8 year old. Through out my childhood she kept supplying me with cards and supplies for my cards. She even got me a subscription to Baseball Digest to feed my baseball obsession. I would read those magazines for hours on end and then look over my cards. I had a notebook which I kept a log of which cards I had and which ones I needed. I still have one of those card lockers which held some of my collection. Cards inside are beat to heck, but I don't care.

Always looking for NY Yankees, NY Jets, NY Knicks & NY Islanders items from the 70's, 80's, 90's to present day including cards, pins, pennants, programs, pocket schedules, figurines & bobbleheads

About 20 years ago I decided to collect ever Brooks card... I got them all ( and I mean all of them from 1957 to 1978) except for the 61 dice game,68 disc ,and 67 3d.

As a kid it was 67 Topps Bill Mazeroski. As an adult it was the 84 Topps Mattingly and Strawberry cards that brought me back as a serious collector with money to spend.
