Although I probably bought some baseball cards as a kid, those are long gone. I started collecting as an adult in 1985. I collect Phillies, Astros (post 1994) and a bunch of individual players. My long-term collecting goal is to own at least one of each type of card made. I currently have just over 78,000 cards in my collection. To support my long-term goal I maintain an image database of scanned cards. I currently have over 26,000 cards scanned. I started contributing card images to Baseballcardpedia.com in May of 2011. I have written a blog, mainly about my baseball card collection, since 2008. You can read it , if you're interested. If you do, thanks for stopping by.
