Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. Some of you have no doubt seen me on other boards. My current collecting interests are: Bob Gibson, and I'm working on graded Cardinals team sets 1952-present. I do a lot of custom cut auto cards as well which I'll eventually start showing off here.

I am going to step as well. My name is Matt Miller, I've gotten back into collecting about 3 years ago, after quitting when I went to college in 1992. I am a major Stan Musial collector, and also collect Roberto Clemente, Cal Ripken and Auto'd HOF RC's.

Hello Gentlemen,

To those who don't know me, I too am a newbie to the forum, though I joined nearly 2 years ago. My name is Ross C., and I've been collecting for over two decades. The main foci of my collection include Frank Thomas, Roberto Clemente, Greg Maddux, Pete Rose, and Tim Lincecum player collections; also, I'm currently building a 1956 Topps Baseball set and a complete run of OPC baseball wax in PSA 9. I tend to buy pre-war when the mood stikes, but have no current pre-war projects.

I look forward to future hobby discussions.

Hello fellow collectors, I'm new to the forum too and would like to say hello!

For those who do not know me from other forums, my name is Patrick Mullins and I collect mainly hockey cards, though I would like to add to my collection various canonized cards from other sports such as, '51 and '52 Mantles, Jordan RC, Larry Bird RC, etc.

I've been out of the PSA Registry for some time now but am considering beginning a 1953 Parkhurst set in at least NM condition as it is my favorite year of vintage hockey.

My favorite card is the 1979 OPC Gretzky RC -- simply a beautiful card!

Hi guys,

Looks like a lot of you know me already. My name is Doug, I live on Long Island and I love to collect and talk about cardboard with pictures of men!

My collecting habits now are mainly TTM autos on cards, THE MICK, Tom Seaver and Reggie Jackson. I am also starting to collect one graded card from as many sets as I can. I do not collect much modern.

Stay Healthy!

Doug

Posted 13 January 2011 - 04:00 PM

I started collecting in the early 70's and remember vividly having 1000's of 1970 and 1971 Topps. My dad was from the Bronx and a big baseball guy so we had that one thing and always discussed the old timers. So I became addicted to all the pre-war HOF's. There was a card shop called ADCO I would visit every Saturday in the summers after working the week for my Dad. With $50 in hand would go there and spend all my money, T206 HOF like Cobb, Johnson, Etc where all $4.00 each. So put together a nice collection of T206, T205, 33 & 34 Goudeys, 39 & 41 Playballs along with Diamond Stars. And of course all the star players from the 50's on down like Musial, Williams, Mays, etc...ended up selling my whole collection when I was in high school because I became more interested in girls and needed the cash.

Flash forward to about 10 years ago I started collecting again to relive my youth like some many others. I acquired a lot of the cards I had when I was a kid along with completes sets of 1950-54 Bowman, 1953-59 Topps all in PSA 8's. I used the SMR guide or at least tried using there price guide in buying T206's because I wanted to build the whole set in 5's and 6's. At that time common 5's where listed at $90 and 6's $115. So I proceeded to place snipe bids for 5's at $100 and 6's at $125 for about 150 auctions and ended up not winning a single one over a 2 month time span. So then I realized that SMR was a complete joke and started tracking ended auction results and creating a database. That is how VCP was started so I ended up selling my collection again and using that money to fund the building of this site. And ended up getting rid of all my cards because I wanted to become neutral. I worked with Carlos on a couple of other sites and used his services again to build VCP and he ended up becoming my partner.

I miss collecting and really enjoyed looking through all my cards and reading what was said on the backs. But not a big deal because I really enjoy what we are doing now

Hey all,
My name is Arex and ive just recently gotten back into collecting cards after collecting comics for around a decade.
In real life I am a middle school teacher, football coach, and head wrestling coach at the high school level.

Currently I am working on a 54 Bowman set in 80-84, a 55 Topps set in 80ish, a 60 HoF set, and player registry sets of:
Mike Schmidt
Al Kaline
Eddie Mathews
Richie Ashburn

I know the feeling very well Arex. The toughest part of this hobby is staying focused when your on a budget. I have struggled mightily myself.

One thing that has helped me is that I am buying only SGC cards. So, since they are not as widely traded as PSA it keeps the temptation to overspend down.

Welcome Wayne,

There is a lot of good people in our network here, a lot of us were transplants from the PSA forum so PSA focused collectors here =)

I just realized that I never introduced myself on this board.

My name is Martin i've been collecting since 2008, prior to that I collected as a kid in the 80's-90's.

My focus has been to re-capture my interest in the hobby through collecting vintage cards that I can still picture seeing as a kid.

Mid-grade high eye appeal PSA vintage is what I mostly collect.

I am currently hunting for a nice mid grade 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle.
