    [Another Site; Jan 18 2009, 09:38 AM] (Responding to "How did you get started in Collecting?") In 1977 I was 9 and was exposed to baseball cards for the first time. I was a flipper for about 2 years. Then got re-introduced December 1991 when I was 22. I thought they looked pretty cool in those...

    [Another Site; Dec 10 2008, 02:44 PM] (Responding to "What will you collect in 2009?") Dunno.
