10/20/2009

Made a few decisions today. I need to dedicate more time to this blog. It could be a fantastic blog showing off my collection and what I get to add to it, plus how I come across it and a new way to make friends. Between work and trying to get back into school, I have had the chance until now to update. That's gonna change. I was reading up on some other blogs and saw how great they were and decided to focus more on this blog. So, on days I don't get anything, I'll still update with thoughts about my teams, and just updates on my life.

I got into a discussion with my buddy Mark, who is also an autograph collector and he was trying to encourage me to think outside the box when it comes to my collection. He suggested I try to get other players as well. I just don't see the point of doing so, unless they are HOF'ers or players I admire. I'm going to need the room to display my pieces and honestly, I probably wouldn't enjoy an auto of a guy like Rance Mullinicks as opposed to Wayne Tollison. Tollison played for the Yankees and that's one of the teams I collect. If I knew a friend that would enjoy the auto or if he had a Mcfarlane, then I would consider it. One thing I do want to do is expand into the world of entertaiment. I'm a huge comic guy, who loves Spiderman and Batman. I sent off a poster of Amazing Fantasy #15 to Stan Lee and in a few months it was returned, signed in black on the bottom. It's one of my more prized posessions. I also wanted to start a muti signed Dark Knight Poster piece and sent off to Aaron Ekhardt in Febuary, but still haven't recieved it back. I may want to pick up another poster and just send to the two I know who do sign, Christan Bale and Michael Caine.

Anyway, I will post more often and hopefully pick up some readers along the way and make some new friends.

Take care and Go Yankees!
