Just some angry card collector who is sick of being taken advantage of.
I don’t have a lot of money. Who am I kidding, I am broke and live off of dollar menus and cereal. Born in 1985 and back in school because of the economy. I am a full time student at CSUN (Cal State University Northridge) and volunteer every year to coach baseball, basketball, or football. I used to do a lot on the music side. If my name is familiar, that is probably why.
I have been collecting for as long as I can remember. I have been fed up with things in the card community for a while. I am not going to get into them here but it is all covered in “The Letter.” Despite this, I still collect. I don’t think that I will ever stop.
I am just an average dude. I believe in collecting what makes you happy. Currently that is Prestige Basketball for 13/14, any Los Angeles Dodger, Carolina Panther, Eric Karros, Larry Walker, and Tom Glavine card. To a lesser extent I collect any Los Angeles Kings and wrestling cards as well.
I am not a high end collector. I rarely buy boxes and my collecting consists of bottom feeding cheap auctions, dollar bins, and bid boards. I have never paid more than $40 for a card. With the exception of the occasional blaster box, I rarely cross the $8 threshold on purchases. I am one of the little fishes trying to survive in this big ocean that is the card collecting community. I am angry at the sharks, and I do not pretend like pretend like I am anything but a gritty minnow.
