How's everyone out there? I'll introduce myself to all of you as RJ. Not to get into too much of my personal life, I'll go ahead and say I am an avid baseball fan. I am 27 years old and currently live in Miami, Florida so therefore I am a big Miami Marlins fan (no bashing please lol). Been a fan of the Marlins since they were born in 1993 as the Florida Marlins. I don't have a favorite player but I do enjoy rooting for the young guys on the team especially their pitching staff (I was a pitcher when I played baseball in high school and some college).
As far as being a baseball card collector, I've been mostly on and off. I have been collecting cards since about 10 years old when my father and/or mother bought me cards. Ever since I have been hooked. I have been going through phases where I wouldn't buy any cards for months (maybe years) to then just buy a pack for the heck of it to then buying because I missed the rush of ripping a pack to see what "hit" is in the pack. At the moment, I don't specifically collect any team or player. I enjoy getting the "hits" even if its a simple parallel or insert card or SP card (if I know what to look for of course). In my opinion, I would say my collection is pretty decent for someone who buys random packs and occasional hobby boxes and has never done a trade. Compared to most of you guys out there though, my collection looks like a beginner starter kit lol.
So I do have accounts with Beckett and SCF and I've had those accounts for awhile. I don't hardly ever post anything though. I enjoy mostly reading and seeing what's in the market and what's interesting and seeing the great hits collectors have been getting.
I just want everyone to know I am very new to this whole blogging thing so any little tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated lol. For now, I'll be blogging anything and everything about baseball and collecting. I would be posting my breaks and opinions of the product and would like to hear from all of you guys as well. Unfortunately, I don't have any social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, etc) for the moment. Hope to create a friendship with all of you and most definitely learn from all of you guys. I would be updating my blog page as I go since I am still learning how to use it.
