I purchased a rather large lot of baseball cards at a garage sale recently. Most of the haul consisted of junk wax, which I was fully aware of when I made the purchase. I was very happy with the purchase overall. I ended up with about 25,000 to 30,000 cards, so I expected some duplication. However, I did not expect such an epic Bipping. Actually, Bip Roberts was not involved, but Randy St. Claire and Ken Howell certainly were involved. I found 65 cards of Mr. St. Claire from 1986 Topps in my boxes. But wait, there’s more. I also found 325 cards of Mr. Howell also from 1986 Topps. I am fairly confident that I am now the world’s largest holder of 1986 Topps Ken Howell cards. It goes without saying that these cards are all for trade.
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.
