I have a few binders crammed full of cards of my favorite Cubs, but there are a handful of guys who get special treatment. In my collection I have five players for which I have cataloged all their cards in a Google Sheet. When I was younger and only collected Ryne Sandberg cards I was able to memorize every card in my Ryno binder. I'd hit a card show with my family on a weekend and I would instantly know if I had a card in my collection or not.
These days I do so much window shopping on Ebay I can't remember if I actually have a specific card or if I just keep scrolling past it online. I know some people prefer Trading Card Database, and I do have all of my Vogelbach cards listed on the website, but I prefer my Google Sheets which allows me the freedom to make additional notes.
For instance, this beauty of a Kerry Wood relic, from 2004 Fleer National Pastime set, came from Greg, the proprietor of The Collective Mind blog.
A second PWE arrived this week and it was one of those types where a 9-pocket page is folded up and stuffed into a business envelope. I've had great success sending and receiving cards this way.Johnny's Trading Spot. John and I have swapped cards many times over, but not so recently.
