Hey Folks,

I'm new to this site and its trading rules but I hope to learn soon.

I'm a HUGE, life-long Minnesota Twins fact, I'm a 3rd generation fan. How can that be? Well, my Grandfather was a Senators fan before the franchise moved to the twin cities to become the Minnesota Twins. As far as I can recall I've been a Twins fan ever since I can remember asking my Dad who his favorite team was and the rest is history.

The days of putting together sets from different companies are history for me as I find it impossible for my finances to keep pace with my collecting desires. In the early 1990's I sold out the majority of my vast collection. Today, I focus on what the cards I like and rarely finish sets that have more that 3 digits when they are completed.

I look forward to meeting folks who enjoy the hobby of card collecting and I hope you'll exercise tolerance with me as I learn this site and ask my rookie questions!

All the best!

Welcome to The Bench. I beleive the early 90's were a good time to sell and not a good time to buy. It's seems there was a window when anuything would sell for a good price. After the 1988 world series, when the Dodgers wom, I paid $3 for a Mickey Hatcher rookie card. Hatcher was a series hero. What a steal.
