Mostly I just buy cards. I do collect things that I've had personally autographed by the players too.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
mainly cards and now im hooked on those highland mint phato things that are matted i go tabout 10 of those now i go ta 1989 piece of jersey framed and numbered with that good looking frame work they do which i cant resit. I also got a piece of bonds bat, and a- rod piece of 300 homerun ball piece all from the higlnad mint .
I collect mainly cards, but in the 90's I went to tons of Jays games and got a bunch of autographed baseballs. I went to a few Orioles games at SkyDome and have 2 Cal Ripken signed balls. And TONS of other autographs. About 5 or so Delgado autographs, one of which is on a game used ball. I've met him 3 times I think.........once at the mall and twice at SkyDome.
I got my picture taken with Roberto Alomar in 1994. That day I got to sit in the dugout with the whole team before the game during warmups. That was cool I think Lance Parrish is my favourite person I've met. Cito Gaston is the worst
Whew, that's it for me Don't even let me get started on basketball.....
"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"
"I've got your phone number written, in the back of my Bible."

I collect anything you can call a collectable. With the exception of bobbleheads and figurines. The Starting Lineup figures and Ud bobbleheads or whoever else makes them. I just dont get into those. My biggest addiction is going to games and getting autographs from the players on whatever i have handy.
I actually have a bunch of stuff signed. Most of the 8X10's and 16X20's are of hockey guys (Lindros/LeClair, Griffey, Jr., Simon Gagne, LeClair, Gretzky, and Gretzky/Lemieux). I also have a few signed pucks and a bunch of BAP Signature Series autos. Some of my best memories are of sending cards with a SASE to the stadium and having the players sign them and return them. I gotta check the inventory but I know that I got Pops. I also have truckloads of inserts and rookie cards, including a mint Lemieux rookie. I really gotta go through my stuff.
