Michael's Baseball Cards - From Andrew

Don't let the age of the young gentleman named Andrew fool you, as he is an absolute pro in this wonderful world of cardboard. He is also very professional and doesn't mess around.

That's part of what I love about this hobby. It doesn't matter what age you are. There is always a place for everyone.

Andrew also has all the markings to become a legend in this hobby, if he is not already.

He sent me a very awesome and what I would call a "power package"!  Andrew really poured on heavy with the types of cards that I absolutely love and collect. He was a little unsure what to send me at first, but I can affirm that he sent me a jackpot!!

It's always a good day when I get new Mets cards and especially ones like these that I've never seen in person, until now. I find the David Wright in particular to be the most interesting and the Diamond Tejada looks absolutely stunning. I love me diamond parallels.

I also get to add to my cognac collection, which is filling out nicely thanks to fellow traders that know I like to indulge myself in parallel goodness!!

And finally we get to the GOLD!!!! These shiny cards look outstanding in a new binder filled with Ultra Pro Platinum pages. That is part of why I like them so much.

I don't know where I would be without gold parallels. In fact I think I mention it somewhere that they have a huge impact on me as a collector, dating back to 1993. I want to keep my tradition of gold going for as long as they keep producing them.

Back to the Diamonds where 2011 marked a big year for me as a collector. I have fond memories of pulling them and trying to see how many I acquire. Plus, they look really prestigious so that helps a bunch.

Andrew, I thank you so much for all the great stuff you sent. I assure you that your package will be getting to you shortly. I have it sitting right here in front of me along with 2 other traders that have been waiting on me for a while.

About Me

I am the mostly obvious but sometimes not-so-obvious computer geek. If it can be done with computing technology, I'm interested. I serve to be the intermediary between human and information technology - connecting people and things to our digital planet and binary universe.

Back Story

I share a nice home on the river with my beautiful wife and two children. 

My oldest son (Zayden) is a cancer and stroke survivor and my other son(Tanner) is more intelligent than any 2 year old I know. They were born 10 months apart, making them "Irish Twins".

Zayden was treated by Vermont's Children's Hosipital and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The nurses, doctor's and staff showed the utmost caliber of professionalism. Their dedicated team was crucial to our son's recovery and survival.

In the past, I have put my self through quite a bit (self inflicted mistakes) in regards to substance abuse but now  have everything in the world going for me as I continue through sobriety and exploration of life.


Information Technology...I love anything computers and am a full blooded Computer Geek. I am trying to break back into the IT world by getting my Bachelor Of Science in Information Sciences and Technology through Penn State. Besides my family, this is my main focus.

My website:  www.techrave.net 

Music... I have a big passion for music and I listen to most types of metal, hard rock, techno, trance, folk and much more...

I play guitar on a Schecter and play both acoustic and metal styles.

I also produce electronic music in FL Studio under a project called Mushraven that can be found here:     


Card Collecting... The hobby has grown and changed in so many ways...I'm glad to be apart of it once again. I am the proud author of the blog listed in the link below.

My Card Blog: cardraven.blogspot.com  

Sports...  I am a huge METS and BULLS fan! I also like the Jets, Canadiens and Rangers.

Mycology... I enjoy growing Shiitake mushrooms and take photographs of fungi in the wild. Some of my pictures can be viewed here on G+ in the albums section.

Picture Taking...I don't call myself a photographer because that would be insulting to real photographers. Actually, I just like taking pictures of scenery and various other things.

Along with that I also enjoy being outside tinkering around, fishing, landscaping, and spending time with my wife and kids.

So congratulations, you've found me and by reading this you probably know more about me than I would like you to know. Just kidding, my life is an open book and I am what is known as a modern day geek. Not exactly the stereotypical kind but whatever...

I just love life basically...I can find almost anything interesting.
