Yeah, I forget how addictive this hobby was but we are having a blast. Just seeing my son's face light up when he gets a Mike Trout or Aaron Judge makes it worth every penny.

Not sure how old your son is, but if he's middle elementary/middle school age, have him check out the "_____ & Me" books by Dan Gutman. That's where my love for Pre-War started, and now I'm 24 with over 55% of the Hall of Fame complete (one playing days/involvement card of each HoFer; yes my signature needs updated).

Half the fun of these pieces of cardboard is the stories behind them and how they tell not only the history of baseball, but America as well.

A belated welcome to the fray here and also back into the hobby, Derek. Collect what you enjoy, do some research before buying, and it will be fun. Our BST areas are quite safe but you still have to be on the lookout for a scammer who might have gotten in. Any member can always PM me for a reference on someone. Many times it will be obvious once their posts are looked at, their interaction etc..... It is caveat emptor on our board BST areas and there are no other protections besides our US legal system. Other places to buy are any of our great advertisers who run auction houses. All of the banners you see are advertisers who have good reputations (and of course there are many others too). Good luck and have fun!!

I collected through most of the 70's, all of the 80's, and into the 90's but sold 95% of my collection back in 1996 so I am essentially starting all over. Would really appreciate some suggestions on places to buy on the internet (other than Ebay), shops in the north Alabama area, and shows that we can all go to together. I would also appreciate any tips and suggestions on the new cards to buy as I am a bit blown away by all of the types and brands available (not like the old days of Topps, Fleer, and Donruss). I am mainly into the cards of the 50's through the 70's, but my son loves the new stuff. Thanks in advance for any help.

Derek
