This site is currently being updated with information about my baseball card collections.
The earliest memory I have of a baseball card is from the early 1980s. We were moving from Connecticut to Florida and I was helping to clean up – by throwing out what I believe was a 1978 Topps Reggie Jackson card. I must have intuitively known that reducing supply would lead to higher prices in the future.
The first “set” I attempted to complete was the 1981 Topps Sticker set. While not quite cards, they were an early introduction to the hobby.
Part of my scholarly work intersects with my hobby.
