So what is Back In The Card Game? After many years of being out of the baseball card collecting game, I am back! I can remember buying my first pack of baseball cards back in 1983. Back then there was three main companies – Topps, Fleer and Donruss. It pretty much stayed that way until Score showed up in 1988 and Upper Deck in 1989. From 1987 to around 1991 was my heyday in the card collecting game and I pretty much had every card that came out. I collected a lot of differant players but my favorite was San Francisco Giants 1st baseman, Will Clark. I had a binders and boxes full of cards! Shortly after 1991, I got out of the game. It seemed that card collecting was becoming too much of a business for grown men and less of a hobby for kids and in my opinion there were too many companies producing sets and the price of cards was getting out of hand. Over the years I may have bought a pack or two of football cards here and there but cannot remember buying anything related to baseball. So why did I get back in the game? I was walking by the card section in Wal-Mart and saw the 2013 Topps Series 1 packs with Prince Fielder on the packs and thought why not, and grabbed a pack. I was really impressed with the 2013 Topps card design and the look so I decided to buy a few more packs. Those packs turned into a couple of Jumbo Packs, which then turned into a couple of Blaster Boxes and I was hooked. So I am back in the game. I am concentrating on finishing the base set of the 2013 Topps Series 1 and then will start branching out to other series like Topps Heritage and pulling my old cards out of storage to see what I have still!
Additionally, from time-to-time I will post some stuff about whats happening on the field in baseball. So enjoy and thanks for visiting!
