Yep, another one. I've seen a bunch of good ones lately, and I thought I'd give it a shot. Before I tell you about some of the cool pieces of cardboard I have (almost 26,000 at last count), I should probably tell you a bit about myself.
My name's Billy, I'm 27, and I live in West Virginia (which you probably figured out already). I've been collecting cards since around 1989, although I clearly remember unsuccessfully begging my mom to buy me packs of 1988 Donruss before I actually bought my first pack of cards (it might've been 1989 Topps, but I can't remember). Both of those sets are among my sentimental favorites, and I FINALLY completed my '89 Topps set this year!
Lately, I've been collecting cards of players that later became managers, as well as trying to get one card from every year Topps made cards. (I'm only 7 years short.) Other sets I'm working on are 2008 Topps and 2008 Topps Heritage.
I'm gonna mainly talk about normal baseball card blog stuff on here, but I'll also talk about players that were born in West Virginia. There are some really good players on that list, as well as some that may surprise you.
I've gotta thank a few people before I forget. First, I've gotta thank my best friend Josh for doing such a good job on the logo. I've also gotta thank Ben Henry, dayf, and Kevin Brotzman for inspiring this whole thing. Keep up the good work, guys.
Anyways, enough about me. Let's talk about cards!
