I collected baseball cards from the late '80s through 2002. Then I went to college and when I came out, I was lost. There were too many brands, sets, choices, relics, autos, parallels, variations. It was a turn off. However, I slowly made my way back.
So here is my attempt to venture back into the hobby. I'll buy a few packs of cards here and there, comment on some cards I have, send out some TTMs, and follow the progress of my Topps Yankees Project.
I was thrilled to get a TTM return from 1996 World Series hero Charlie Hayes.
Hayes is a now a coach for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. He signed these in about 3 weeks.
The only big regret I have is that I couldn't find the card I really wanted signed:

This would be so cool to have. I looked high and low for this card in my collection and just couldn't find it. I still feel like I have it someplace, but this is where my disorganization hurts me. However, I am happy to have the '93 Topps Gold signed, as I don't think I've ever sent a Topps Gold card to a player.
