First off, I am by no means a writer. I have zero capabilities in that department so please bear with me. A little background on me, I work for a distributor in the trading card industry. I still am and have been with them for almost 10 years. I am also an avid collector for over 20 years. I enjoy reading the numerous blogs out there in cyberland regarding our hobby so I figured I would start my own as well.

My goal in this blog is to be very interactive and reader driven. I will throw out topics and questions to get more information back from people out there that enjoy this hobby. I have direct contact with the manufacturers so I want to hear from you. Talk about a true town hall meeting! I know what I like to see but what you do others want to see? I see it this way...from reading blogs there doesn't seem to be much market research going on these days. I want to be that person that changes this. Without you I have no job...which doesn't make my wife or son very happy!

So I will persuade as many of you as possible to jump on board with me. In return I will voice your concerns. I want to learn more and more on how we can improve this hobby.
