Hello everybody friends collectors!
Or in my mother tongue, Ciao a tutti amici collezionisti!
This is my absolute first post in my first ever blog, and I'm happy to use it for a brief presentation of myself and my passion for baseball card collecting.
I started collecting about six years ago, and since then I kept collecting every day, trying to put together as many sets as possible, and more important looking for other collectors in the old Europe...because, as the title of my blog states, I'm an italian collector!
I decided to start this blog after many months since I started trading with Jeroen, The dutch card guy, hoping to find other collectors that might become new traders in this international and great community of collectors I'm joining.
In my collection every player, team, set, subset and brand will have its own spot, since I collect basically everything about baseball and in the form of a card!
In the last years I've built my collection through ebay purchases, but I had the luck to spend my last 5 summer holidays in NYC, and the chance to pay visit to the wonderful White Plains sportcards show, that allowed me to pick up as many cards as my luggage could possibly carry...
Hopefully in the next weeks I'll receive my latest ebay pick-ups, the majority of which being autographs, and I will post pictures of them to share with you guys
I'm currently going through my entire collection in order to update the exact number of cards I own, and to keep track of the content of every box (I can approximate the total number of cards to 40 thousand, but they might be more!)..
Well, time to finish my not-so-brief introduction so
Best regards to all of you from Italy and keep collecting!
