Hey y'all,

I'm from the Dallas area, finishing up grad school, and fell in love again with collecting about a year ago.

Typical story, I collected as a kid during the bubble years of the 1990s. If I had a card worth $5 I was ecstatic. Then i went to college, my collection went into a closet, and my money went to Ramen noodles.

Now I'm married and we're both fully employed, so I finally have a little extra to drop on the hobby. Things have changed quite a bit in the last 12 years and I just feel like I've gotten my feet under me.

I'm not a super collector or devoted to a single team, my collection only has rough perimeters. It's largely football. I'm not a fan of Panini, I enjoy topps because of its history and its chrome cards. I also have a soft spot for Press Pass. I do enjoy making custom cards and sending them out for TTM autos (not usually athletes, but indie bands I like, scientists, historians, etc.)

Looking forward to jumping in.

Welcome back to the hobby. I really love Press Pass because of the customer service is excellent. Panini has been descent.
