On another major board I thoroughly enjoyed reading the "daily" postings of a year long "collection" of a single player ( in this case it was Gary Carter). The poster titled it " 365 days of Gary Carter" and over a year posted some sweet stuff he had collected- pins, posters, cards, lineup stuff, plates, and various other knick knacks- everything from newspapers to towels to socks etc, etc, etc= all of it solely focused on his player collector love of everything Gary Carter.
I always thought the idea was great as I enjoyed looking for the posts daily to see how similar I was to that collector- sort of brought the hobby home in a way I was able to deeply connect with and no longer felt out of place for being so "focused" on the player aspects.
I have often wondered = would anyone here on FCB have an interest in a similar type post ??
I could do one of specific players (Roger Clemens, Nomar Garciaparra, Pudge Fisk, Dwight Evans, Fred Lynn, Boggs ) or could also do a team related one ( Red Sox items).
If anyone would like to see a similar post or feel this is something they'd enjoy reading let me know. I'm doing a major scan project after having spent 7 months finally scanning my 2000+ card slabbed BGS Clemens collection ( I also have another 500+ in PSA slabs).
I'll put up a POLL and we can go from there.
