Evening everyone, just a quick note that at the suggestion of a friend, I'm going to start live streaming sorting the cards on Twitch using Twitch's IRL category. I put up a test video and the results were positive so it's a step. I'm going to try to do streams Mon-Wed around Midnight EST(9pm PST), and try to do at least an hour stream starting the 11th. I'll put a heading here on the site so no one will have to go to Twitch and attempt to find me on there. I see this as an opportunity to interact with folks.
Updated the wants list and we're sitting at 1,657 cards processed. There's still a giant box, a regular card box, and two large flat rate boxes to go through plus some scattered about in a box. Almost to the end of counting lol. -Matt

Business Cards

     Evening everyone, short post that i'd like to share. Since Google made some changes to how blogs are found and gave SEO the boot, I've had to come up with more creative ways of getting folks here. Only thing that i've come up with thus far are business cards with the card collector logo on the front that also lists the site so I'm putting it out there that those that help to pitch in to cover the cost of the cards will receive one of the cards for yourself plus some extras to hand out or put wherever.

     I was thinking of going with Vista Print to handle this task as the quality of their cards is really good, and 100 cards would cost $20(s/h incl). This would also allow me to go out locally and hand people something tangible for either giving me their cards or for collecting info, etc.. this past year alot of people near me were selling cards for whatever they could get for em and it would've been nice to have handed them one of these cards and talk with them about the blog and work out deals and the like.

     The way i'd like to handle this is through Paypal, that way the image can be set on the card correctly and format it correctly, etc.. so I'll ask those that are interested to visit, fill in the amount(min is $1), and then message me on here so I know who it came from so I can get those cards to you. If somehow I find the cash to do this on my own, then it'll be what it is.

Thanks everyone,

Wants Page

Afternoon everyone, the wants page is back and is full! It will continue to grow as I finish up the rest of these cards. We're sitting at just over 1500 cards total in the collection(1539 to be exact) including doubles, tripples, etc... Remember if you have cards or know of someone who has cards no one wants or is going to throw away, please get in contact with me and send em my way. I'd rather have them in the collection then at the bottom of the garbage can. Take care, Matt
Hey everyone, just a small update that since I'm having issues with listing cards i'm after in the google sheet, i'm going back to listing them how I had them before so I'll be creating a want list here in a few. Contact me page is up also, and was thinking of expanding collecting cards to international cards since just about every country's heard or participated in Baseball. Thanks again to all who visit, Matt

Site Change

Morning everyone, just a short update that we've updated the layout. The previous layout(which I loved) had broken images and was a mess code wise. While this one is anime themed, it's cleaner code wise and I like the general layout. For the time being all links except the Contact tab operate. The Contact tab will have a contact form so visitors can contact me or donate cards, money, btc, etc... so stay tuned! -Matt

2018 Update

Wow, last word from me was back in August >.< granted things have been at a crawl as I've been trying to focus all of my energy on getting the list done to see what I have and what I need, and taking care of my wife as she's been in and out of the hospital since last update. Speaking of, I went back and deleted ALL of my old google sheets that had cards on em and started over. I did it for several reasons and the main one was to try a different way of sorting. Since the majority of my cards are loose, I set them up in counts of 60(doubles included), record them, and pack them in aluminum foil for protection(this should also help to keep the cards from fading). Ya know, when I took on this last large batch of cards I didn't forsee spending the next year sorting them tbh, but anyhow - here's the permanant google sheet for these now.

The first tab is an overview. This lists the stacks i've gone through and the number of cards i've processed. Tabs A-Z are the stacks themselves, numbered 1-10. If the stacks reaches Z10, I'll start over with A11-20. The last tab is the sets tab. These list the card sets and wither I have any from those sets or not. Normal black means I don't have it, normal red means I do have it, bold red is a double, bold gray is 2 doubles, bold blue is 3 doubles, and bold purple is 4 doubles. I appreciate everyone that visits here still as the collector's very much alive and going, just handling other things at the same time lol. Take care and be safe, Matt
