Hello all. My name is Brandon I own a reptile education business. I work with all kinds of different species. I collected cards many years ago and decided to get back into with my son. Born and raised a Raider fan and collect Raider cards with a focus on Howie Long. Not sure where I went wrong but my son is a Patriots fan and collects them. Recently began putting sets together for fun. Looking forward to learning and sharing.

Thank you for the kind words. My son is having fun with it for sure! We keep around 40 - 50 different species and go to schools, libraries, b-ay parties and company events. Its a fun job and the best part is my kids and wife help out. All about family.

Welcome to The Bench Brandon. Glad to see another football collector on The Bench!

If you want feel free to send me your want lists for 1980 Topps and 1997 Playoff First and Ten. I should be able to help you with those. I recently completed the First and Ten set and the one card that held me up was Wayne Cherbet which I finally got from someone here. I can't help you on the 2020 sets but would be glad to check your want lsits on the older sets.

Welcome to The Bench! I collect with my son as well - definitely something that we have a blast doing! I know I have some 1980 Topps football stashed away if you have a want list.
