    Google your name with "baseball cards" and what will happen?

    I sometimes will google names I come across in the hobby, wondering if there is any information out there on them. Some collectors have achieved an insane amount of fame, while many, many more toil in obscurity. I decided to search my name and baseball cards just like this "first name last name baseball cards" to see what might be out there. I guess I am not too disappointed to see that there was merely one hit, on page 2 of 5. Some people are much more public and I tend to keep a slightly lower profile I guess. Someone had reached out to me for some thoughts, as they were doing a piece on a book I owned and had posted about online. I don't think I ever realized the article posted until just now, as this is the first time I am seeing it.

    What happens when you google your name and baseball cards? Anything? Nothing? Pages and pages of hits (you must be famous)?

    The golfer Ben Martin came up for me mainly. I should really pick up some of his cards. It would be kinda cool to collect someone with the same name as me.

    My first name also happens to be a city in CA. Torrance. So, yeah, a lot about baseball card stuff in Torrance, CA.

    All kinds of different stuff for me. Links to my different player collection websites, hobby articles I've written, posts on hobby boards, collecting awards from various sites, mentions on blogs, etc. About 4 pages of results.

    Makes me feel like

    and yet, no.
