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:
GET THE CARDS SIGNED!
I already had a few cards sign before I came up with this idea but now I have "upped my game":
- I plan on sending cards to current Managers, Assistant Coaches & players and ask them for their signatures.
- 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.
