I've finally decided to start a baseball card blog. Why? Because I want to share my adventures in collecting baseball cards. Sorry football and basketball fans but this blog will only have content related to baseball cards - it's all I collect. Also, I would like a place to rant about my pet peeves. I have a lot of them. And just to be clear, I define a baseball card as a 2.5 inch by 3.5 inch piece of cardboard that features one Major League player who played in the Majors in the year the card was issued. As you might guess, I don't have any Allen & Ginter minis of the minotaur.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
