Baseball cards, anyone?

Wow ... that’s some collection! I have a few ‘treasured’ items, that are more ‘personal love’ memorabilia ... like the baseball Blyleven tossed to me during a game in 1986 ... but I am not a collector of anything. Anyone going in on this 1933 Babe Ruth card?

"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things."

It took me a while but this year I finally divested of several moving cartons' worth of baseball cards I had been lugging across the country through various moves. But I still kept the best 25% or so, so maybe that moves me only 75% of the way toward adulthood.

Just this week I did similarly with my other childhood hobby of coin collecting. The high-end dealer, a full decade older than myself, was remarkably courteous as he sifted through my fifty pounds of pennies looking for anything remarkable.  He recognized a kindred spirit. :)
