Baseball Cards Profiles in Profiles Date: November 3, 2019Author: jasoncards 2 Comments Another one for the SABR blog. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
1978 Topps was my unofficial rookie year of collecting as well. I had a small collection prior but was warned for leaving them around the living room too much, and when it was one too many times, those cards disappeared. Hahaha…kind of. I just started reading baseball card blogs and love the different perspectives that you bloggers bring to the hobby. It has made me look at my cards much more intently. In one case it has taken me in a new and fun direction. I am now trying to collect cards from games that I have attended or that are mentioned on the back of the card. So, I look at patches, uniform combos (football mostly), the other players that might show up (even just a sleeve), and read the backs a lot more. One example is the back of a Russ Davis card from 1998 where they his walk-off HR, a game I was at in Seattle vs the Dodgers in 1997. Card front picture is from an outdoor stadium not the Kingdome but fun nonetheless. Thanks for taking the time to blog.
Right on! 1978 was a great “rookie class” for collectors and definitely a fun set to start out with. Thanks for the kind words, and you’ll find a ton of great articles from more than a dozen writers on our sabrbaseballcards.blog site. That’s where I do most of my work these days. Jason
