I used to really be into collecting baseball and football cards. I started at the tail end
of the "normal era" of card collecting, just before Upper Deck started their first high-dollar set. At that time
it was possible to own one of every card made each year and I am a completist.
A while later my father wanted to get into collecting but, by then the inserts and specialty
cards had hit in force. It was no longer feasible to collect a sport and get all of the cards for a certain year.
My father was an Oklahoma State fan, so he decided that he would collect only players that played for OSU - in
particular - Robin Ventura.
There is no telling how many hours he spent on eBay and in card shops looking for Ventura cards.
He kept pretty good records of his collection in Excel also. When he passed away I inherited the collection and, in
fact, have added a few cards here and there to fill in some blanks. This may be one of the most complete
collections of Robin Ventura around.
I will try to add card fronts and backs when I get the time.
Trading Cards Database a good place for finding and tracking
cards and collections. They have no export function though.
