Welcome to my little corner of the web! I'm Donny. Pleased to meet you!
I have many, many hobbies. First, I collect baseball cards... mainly vintage baseball cards. The Mickey Mantle to the right was one of the first vintage cards I bought... back in 1986 I believe for a whopping $33 (I was 11 years old) at Nostalgia World in Memphis, TN.
I am working on the T206 set plus Topps sets particularly from 1952, 1954, 1955, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1962, 1963, 1965 (top priority), 1967, and 1975. I would really like to get into T3's, T200's, 1933 & 1934 Goudeys, and Old Judge's as well, but alas I don't know if my budget will allow all that right now.
Please check out my baseball card trading page and let me know if you're interested in trading.
I am a member of the following online trading groups and forums:
I highly recommend all three groups to all card collectors and traders. In my time with the groups, I have completed some good trades, organized and participated in circulating 1950s and 1960s dupe boxes, and have met some friendly people who share my interest in vintage baseball cards.
My other hobbies include: firearms and plinking, collecting coins (especially ancient Roman coins), metal detecting, collecting autographs, online gaming (MMORPGs)... there are others I'm sure.
I'm an aerospace engineer so I'm interested in rocketry, defense, and space stuff too.
