Default Newbie from So Cal

Hello, my name is Adam and I live in Orange County, CA. I am new to this forum but have been active in a couple others for a while. Looking forward to sharing some of my collection and making some trades.

My primary collecting interests right now include:
SF Giants - collecting just about everything and putting together want lists
USC Trojans - collecting all former Trojans in either college or pro unis - I have slacked off on this collection lately but it numbers over 10,000 different cards.
Willie McCovey - yes most of his cards are with the Giants, but I have been collecting McCovey since the early 80s
Ronnie Lott - he is a Trojan but I have been collecting his cards for longer than my USC collection and have a pretty high percentage
Rickey Henderson - again a long time player collection, have about 1500 different cards which seems like a lot but he has a ton of cards I need

I dabble in some other player collections (Barkley, Webber, Ewing, Harold Miner, Winfield, Vida Blue) as well but they are secondary to the above.

I also like building sets and have all the Topps since 1976 plus 1959, 1960 and 1974; all Donruss sets; all but one (1998) UD set; and many of the Fleer sets. I think I want to tackle the 1975 set next or maybe 1970.

Sorry for the long intro, but thought I would lay my collecting interests out there. Looking forward to connecting with other collectors.

Long intros aren't a bad thing. More information is always good.

Welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the boards. I don't post on this one too often. I'm down in San Diego... not too many shops down here. At least ones with good prices. Seems like most closed up shop. I got to get up to OC sometime to check out their shops..

Collect: Basketball / Lakers autos
Chronology base, Limited 09-10 Legends /99, Topps Signature 08-09 Black facsmiles.

Thanks for all the well wishes. Didn't know there were so many neighboring collectors. BTW my favorite shop MVP Sportscards in Laguna Hills - right off the 5 freeway and Alica Pkwy. The owners are very nice, prices are pretty reasonable. Looking forward to making some trades.
