Is there anybody out there?

Post by CobbSpikedMe on Sat May 05, 2018 2:21 am

I haven't posted here in years but just came back to see what was going on and see no posts in months.  So I ask...Is there anybody out there?

11 views in a day means there are some of you out there. Post hello or anything. Let's get this board back to life. Why not right? Let's hear from you.

Hello!

Wow, I check in after what seems like an eternity away to find there's still life on this forum AND an HPV vaccine banner ad at the top of the page just for me. How lucky am I?

Hi Adam! Thanks for posting a reply and letting me know there is someone else willing to post still. Like you I was away for a long time and came back to see what was going on. It looked pretty slow but I figured I'd say hi to whoever was still looking at the board.

What do you collect mainly?

Over the last 30 years I've collected everything from Old Judges to the shiniest of shiny refractors, but over the last year, I've cut my collecting way down. I've been working on the very tough 1967 Topps Venezuelan MLB set. I'm currently at 115/150. I also collect Topps Vault items like final negatives, match print photos, proofs, etc. for all four of the major sports with a focus on Boston teams and players from my childhood like Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, and Eric Davis. I also occasionally pick up recent cards of guys like David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Pedro Martinez, and Mookie Betts. For non-sports I mostly collect Nu-Jell, Papoose gum, and Frostick animal cards. 1940's-50's General Electric EMD locomotive spec cards, as well as 1950's Brach's Candy railroad cards. And I just purchased a complete set of the 1970's-80's green background/black lettering version of Wacky Wax Dinosaurs stickers.

I also have a small, but quickly growing fossil collection.

Sounds like we were fans of some of the same players when we were kids.  I collect Eric Davis still today.  Not a ton of stuff or super actively, but I have my Davis cards/items and add to it now and then.  

I'm mostly pre-1980 and Prewar.  I collect vintage sets and some prewar sets, but mostly just prewar cards that I like.  I collected as a kid and gave it up in the 90's then picked it up again at the end of the 90's when I was close to graduating college.  Have been in it ever since then.  

Good to meet you.

Anyone else out there want to share?
