Wright On February

I had initially meant for this "Write On" series to be weekly, but those plans have went the way of many other plans I've had for this blog. It's not that I don't want to keep up with the blog , it's simply that I'm invested in several other online avenues - combine with school, two kids and a wife and that is how the clock runs around these parts.

I've known a few collectors that would scoff at the very idea of a blog, but that doesn't mean they enjoy the hobby any less. That's why I try and not beat myself up about not writing so much. 

I'm not all that creative when it comes to writing about cardboard either. I'm more of a show/tell/opinion type of guy.

I did get a package in the mail recently so I am going to enjoy writing about that. The trade show-and-tells might get a little mundane and overdone around the blogosphere, but they are really fun to cover from a writing stance.

At least in my view anyways.

The above David Wright is nice little gold piece from the previous year's Update Series and I am a gold seeker when it comes to cardboard - for those who didn't know that.

One of my first priorities is acquiring the entire 1993 Topps Baseball Set in Gold.

Yes, I am trying to get each of the 825 gold parallels in that set. It's not going to be easy, no matter how cheap the cards are. This is Topps largest set ever and will take a long time on my current budget, but we'll get there.

We will get there.

Back Story

My oldest son is a cancer and stroke survivor. He was treated by Vermont's Children's Hosipital and we couldn't have asked for a better outcome. The nurses, doctor's and staff showed the utmost caliber of professionalism. Their dedicated team was crucial to our son's recovery and survival. He has remained cancer free for over two years now.

Stemming from a 10 year bout with alcoholism, I am proud to say that I am now alcohol free for 4 years running!

And back in school and enrolled at Penn State's College of Information Sciences & Technology through World Campus


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: 

Vlogging...The word is dumb but the activity is life-changing. Follow my Geekneck vlog here:

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.

Card Blog:  

Sports...  I am a huge METS fan!

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.
