1. If I didn't collect baseball cards, I'd collect Transformers or Marvel/DC action figures.
2. My baseball heroes include one you probably wouldn't know from my blog or comments, and that person is Andre Dawson.
3. Every New Years I resolve to increase my collection, but try and get rid of the cards I don't need as well.
4. If I could spend a day with one person from baseball history, it would be William Ellsworth Hoy.
I like mine done in the Chicago style, with relish, onions, pickles, celery salt, mustard, and maybe a pepper or two (no ketchup). Oh, you mean canine? Lucy, all dogs and I have an understanding...they don't like me, and the feeling is mutual.
2. My favorite player of all-time is Ryne Sandberg. Bar none. My son's middle name is Ryne.
3. My favorite team is the Chicago Cubs.
4. My favorite baseball movies are (because I couldn't decide on one) Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, Major League, and The Rookie.
5. My Favorite Baseball Books:
Topps Baseball Cards: The Complete Picture Collection, a 40 Year History, 1951-1990 by Frank Slocum, Red Foley, and Sy Berger
Classic Baseball Cards: The Golden Years 1886-1956 by Frank Slocum
6. My favorite card??? It's hard to choose. If I had to pick one, it would have to be...(really struggling to choose one)...out of 42,072 plus cards, I can't pick just one. Sorry. Now, if I had to pick a favorite set...it would either be 1989 Topps, or this:
my favorite insert set of all time, 2007 Topps Allen & Ginter Flags of the World!!!
