My New Plan

I am a big fan of baseball cards and I always have been. I started collecting cards when I was 8 or 9 years old and now as I'm nearing 30 I find that I have more cards than I ever could have imagined. Of course as my collection has gotten bigger so has the amount of doubles, triples, quadruples etc. (in some cases 14 or 15 of the same card).

The question that must be asked is, "What should I do with all these extras?"

Until this point I have given some away to my cousin's kids to help them start their own collection, put some aside for the day I have a son I can share this passion with and finally I came up with a new plan:


I already had a few cards sign before I came up with this idea but now I have "upped my game":

  1. I plan on sending cards to current Managers, Assistant Coaches & players and ask them for their signatures. 
  2. I have recently come across a company that does Card Shows in the New York area. At these shows they often have former players available for signings. On May 5th there will be a show in White Plains and they will have Pete Rose and Graig Nettles as just a few of the many former greats.

I intend on posting about each of my signed cards. I will start with the few signed cards I already have and will move on from there. I will not be telling you who I mail cards to because in case they don't sign the cards and send them back I don't want anyone's opinion of these guys to change.

I do hope that you will enjoy keeping up with this new adventure. Of course your feedback is always welcome and if you have any thoughts of how to get cards signed I am always open to suggestions.
