12 months ago (late 2014) I got chatting to a parent at my daughter's football training and discovered he collected baseball cards. I'd not touched my cards since 2002/03 so had no idea about the current scene but we soon exchanged details and he invited me to join a Facebook group 'UK Cards'
My interest in collecting reignited and with some great collectors on the group 2015 has been a busy year.
I originally got in to collecting when a friend married a guy from New York and from 1999 to 2007 I used to visit regularly. In 2002 I began collecting the 2002 Upper Deck Series 1 set and this Christmas finally completed the base set after getting back into the hobby and getting the final card from COMC.
The reason for the blog was for 2 acts of kindness and the realisation that not everyone uses social media. I received two excellent parcels. The first from The Dutch Card Guy in Holland. This led to contact with The Italian Completist from unsurprisingly Italy. Both have huge collections and a sizeable tradelist so it's been great to strike up a relationship with these guys.
I'll post when I can or get anything of interest.
