Back in the game

Here it is...I have been out of the game for almost 20 years and for some reason this summer I decided to go through all my old cards and see what I (still) had.

What I found: all kinds of Detroit Tigers, Ken Griffey, Jr., Roger Clemens, Bo Jackson, Derek Jeter's rookie Topps, and other "heroes" of my youth.

These pieces of cardboard meant quite a deal to me then and just like an old friend, it seems I have not missed a day without them.

However, I have missed quite a lot in the baseball card business --- short prints, #d sets, AUTOS, etc, acronyms I had teach myself in the last few months.

So, I am back in the hobby.
