I'm not an organized person. It just isn't in my nature. I do believe it is an important trait for a card collector. I think that is why I don't have any wantlists posted. I look at the wantlists of some other bloggers and I'm blown away that anyone can know which cards they need from literally decades worth of sets. I don't even have an updated wantlist for 2009 A&G because every single one of the cards from the 2 1/2 dozen or so trades I've made is still in the package. I don't want to sort them until I can post them.
I do know what I like and I'm going to tell you so you'll know...hint, hint.
I like to think of myself as a team collector with a dash of set collector mixed in (for a chosen few sets). I also have one theme collection going and a few players that I really enjoy collecting. I'm not going to keep you in suspense, I'm just going to make a list.
Team: Texas Rangers
Theme: plays at the plate...shocker right?
Players: Will Clark is my all-time favorite player.
Catchers: Ivan Rodriguez-Ranger uni or not
Joe Mauer- I know he's on the list above, but he's a catcher, so he gets double billing
I'm eventually going to start chasing after some of the sets from the 70s...maybe when I get caught up with posting trades and creating wantlists and have some free time.
No really, I mean it.
