I started very broad and collected every signed card of anyone. I'd go to fall league and spring training and TTM. Take any player I'd purchase every unsigned card that came out of them and try to get them signed which led to 70,000+ signed cards. It got too big and I got rid of most and am down to mainly HOF and Jewish and Japan HOF where I try to get every signed pre 1960 card of HOFers. I used to buy large lots when AH like heritage had them at decent prices and bought most of Ron Gordons inventory (he used to be a dealer in the group including Jim Stinson, Bill Corcoran, etc) Also made trades with many on this board and others. Now I am not wiling to get into bidding wars with folks that have way more $ than I do so additions are few and far between. BTW I have over 70 different signed cards of Brooks- all different. I still spend way too much time scouting sites and bidding on auctions etc. It is an obsession and an addiction for me. I barely watch modern baseball but prefer how things used to be

Michael,

Appreciate your insight. Man, youíre correct 70k+ is just too much. You still have a fairly large focus; is the accumulation manageable?

So, 70 Brooksie autographs, all different?!? This I have to see. Are you going to scan them and add with the others that you have pictured already? I saw a couple Brooks autos in there.

Well Iím kinda with you on watching modern baseball even though I donít watch as much as I used to, but I still keep up. I LOVED how the game was in the past when the players were grounded and most wanted to be role models. Brooks was my hero growing up so thatís why I still have joy collecting him and the Orioles in general.

I got burned out on scanning so stopped after I reached 1960 except for a few of my post 1960 favorites. Most Brooks are of course post 1960. I am missing 1967 as too pricey for me. Also looking for 1961 post

Once you get back into scanning please let me know when, and if, you scan all the Brooksie cards; would love to view. Iím going to try and stick to his regular issue cards, at least for now, since I think thatís 22 cards total. Theyíll be several pricey ones in that grouping which Iím sure youíre aware. There are also a few that are not really conducive to pen autographs, so Iíll have to wait for at least a decent one; I may go with sharpie autographs in those instances.
