Getting back to this question the early influencers were Smiling Dave (don't know his last name), Scott Brockelman and Lew Lipset..... The latter 2 helped me a lot when I first started out.

My mother. When I wad 12 she purchased me a mint Rod Carew rookie. Best gift ever! Either that or the G.I. Joe "Headquarters Command Center".

My parents. My mom was always willing to pick up a pack while grocery shopping and my dad was always willing to drive me to different shows around New Jersey/New York.

My mom's friend also gave me a Don Mattingly Topps rookie as a birthday gift then a Donruss rookie as a first communion gift...needless to say I cherish those.

But outside of family--Gary from Card Mart in Verona, New Jersey. Always treated me kindly and was very generous. He always made it feel like my five bucks was stretched as far as possible! When I ran into him at a show years later while in my 20s I was thrilled to say hello. Great guy/dealer--wish I knew what his last name was so I could give him due credit! Gary, if you're out there, cheers!

If Smiling Dave is a local DFW person, his name is Dave Marshall

Not sure he is very local but somewhere like Waxahachie....Scott B knows him. I think he might be from East Texas or could be from around here, just not sure. My very first (as an adult) card experience was seeing him set up at the Valley Ridge (in Allen but almost vacant now) mall card show. He had table after table of bicycle spoke 50s and 60s cards and I thought they were the coolest thing. A crumpled Banks rookie for 15 bucks (that card is still worth about 15 bucks)!! This was around 1995 I guess...

.(thanks Scott for the above ID)

Yea, I was given the base towards the end of my GI Joe playing days. So therefore many wartime atrocities were committed in that facility. I vaguely remember the jail cell being overfilled with Cobra Commander foot solders. Poor Scarlett was also put in the cell before her brutal execution via fire crackers.
