Bear with me as I navigate through the challenges of creating this, my first website. The goal of this site is to catalog my current HOF autograph collections, share them with like minded collectors and hopefully spark interest on the joys of HOF collecting within a few new people.
I warn you now, it starts innocently enough but before you know it, the passion will explode. For me, it began with the chase. I had a love of sports cards but had lost focus. My collecting lacked a goal. I wanted to have a purpose and it dawned on me, what better subset than the absolute legends, the best that ever played.
Collecting HOF autos starts out incredibly easy in the beginning. It is staggering how many Hall of Fame autographs can be purchased for under $20, many under $10 or even $5. There are so many that my postal carrier surely cursed my name on a daily basis due to how many yellow bubble mailers he was having to deliver. I can tell you that my wife sure did but I digress.
My buying has slowed dramatically as I have reached the pointy end of the spear. My passion has outrun my budget as it were. I still search constantly to fill the many holes I have on my checklists but my pick ups have become far more infrequent. No worries, the chase is by far the most entertaining part of the journey and I am still every bit as engaged as I was on day one. The purchases may be less often but now they are bigger and more exciting.
Come on in, take a look but be warned, this passion can be contagious.
