2013 will be an exciting year for my wife and I as we welcome the addition of a baby boy to our family in March. I have always wanted a son, so that I could share with him all of the things my father and grandfather shared with me. I started thinking about all of the things I wanted to do with my new son and let me tell you there are a lot. So many of the things require him to be a bit older to enjoy or appreciate, but collecting baseball cards from his birth year seemed like something I could do while he was just a baby. As he gets older I hope to share my love of sports and its memorabilia with him.
This Blog will be used to chronicle my attempt to complete the 2013 Topps Baseball - Emerald parallel set of 330 cards. I really enjoy putting sets together, but to date I have only completed one set. I have several sets started with intentions of finishing them, but the cost or difficulty of finding the cards has always slowed me down. I know that I will need the help of others to complete this task which is why I have taken the advice from www.cardboardconnection.com and started a trading/collecting blog.
Currently I have 2 boxes of 2013 Topps Jumbo packs ordered and plan on starting with that. I should have 20 Emerald cards once I have opened those packs. Hopefully, I can use some of the other cards to trade or sell for more Emerald cards. Once those avenues are exhausted I plan on selling or trading some of the other cards in my collection. I will be posting a Trade list in the next few days and I will update my progress towards completion as I get new additions. I am actually a bit excited to try this out and see what happens.
If anyone has advice, tips, or cards they want to trade or possibly sell please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading and wish me luck.
