Listed below are my collecting interests. It's posted here for informational purposes. I probably don't have anything you'd be interested in trading for, unless you're into Oriole team issued Jesse Jefferson postcards. I've got boatloads of those. LOL
My collections and collecting interests:
-Orioles Topps/Fleer/Bowman/Donruss from 1954 to 1990. '90 marks the point I jumped the card collecting ship. I completed this long ago but I might upgrade a few cards in the future.
-Baltimore Colts mainstream cards from the AAFL Days thru the Mayflower move. I've completed this other than a few stray Fleer 'In Action' cards.
-Oddball, limited distribution, regional, team-issued and promotional sets, display items and paper collectibles for the Orioles and Baltimore Colts. Examples are Leaf, Johnny Pro stand-ups, all manner of Topps inserts, coins, stamps and extraneous junk, pocket skeds, commemorative glassware, pennants and player postcards etc.
-Batman...sets, sketch cards, books...almost anything! Mars Attacks as well.
-T206s and Japanese baseball cards of various types. I don't have huge collections of these but they fascinate me and I love picking up bargains online just for fun.
-Billy Pierce. I've been a fan of his since childhood. I believe I became one because he seemed to pitch at Yankee Stadium against the Yankees every time my Dad took me to see a game there involving the White Sox. I have a pretty extensive Pierce collection including cards, postcards/photos and novelty items.
-Yearbooks/Press Guides/Game Programs and postseason game programs for the Orioles, Baltimore Colts and New York Rangers. I lack only the 1954 and 1956 Oriole press guides for a straight run through 2016. I have
-My fantasy football and baseball player collections. I've commished a league since 1980 and have collected one card of every player I've had on my team. Those cards are mostly Topps and the other mainstream issues but I also have had to dig up college issue cards, USFL cards, regional and team issues and have had to make a handful of cards myself for those few players never to have had one issued. I began playing fantasy baseball a few seasons ago and I collect those players as well.
-University of Houston alums who have gone on to the pro ranks. I used to really track these down and I have a nice collection from the 50's through about 1991 or so. Elvin Hayes, Fred Couples, Andre Ware, Dwight Davis, Doug Drabeck, Otis Birdsong and Clyde Drexler make up most of it. I also have quite a bit of University of Houston paper memorabilia including game programs, press guides, etc.
-Pins and buttons. I have managed to collect all the Orioles World Series pins. I lack the 1958 All Star pin. I also have numerous commemorative player and event pins and buttons for the Orioles, Baltimore Colts, NY Rangers and Astros.
Possible future projects:
the 1961 Nu Card College Football set;
my half ass attempt to fill out the '75 Topps
-I collect cards of the following players, some earnestly, others casually:
Charles 'Chief' Bender
Allie Reynolds (my Dad's favorite pitcher)
The Houston Aeros
Any and all University of Houston players
John, Ted and Robert Kennedy
Hubert H Humphrey
