New to the Bench and to trading cards in general. Thanks to mintman2 for the referral to this site. I bought some Ripken cards from him on ebay and since he is fairly close by, we met to make the exchange. He told me about this forum.
Currently, I am concentrating on building up my Cal Ripken, Jr. collection and building the 2010 Topps Series 1 and Opening Day sets. Of course, being an O's fan, I will consider any current and former Orioles cards.
I'm working on putting together want and trade lists.
My wild idea is to collect game used tickets from each of Ripken's 2632consecutive games starting on 5/30/1982 and ending 9/19/1998. I only have about 2500 to go. :)
Welcome to 'The Bench' and to a very interesting hobby.
