Organize

I've been trying to organize cards the past few weeks and get them entered into Beckett Organize.  The biggest problem/concern I have is on how to grade my cards.  I've read many articles on what the grades are and how to determine the grade.  I just don't want to give somebody a "poorer" card than they are expecting in a trade.  I'm open to any suggestions on grading or good way to organize.

I'm also interested to know how most people display their collections.

Okay, here goes my first blog in the Baseball Card world.

I've been collecting cards when money allows since around 1985 (age 15).  I finally bought my first Jumbo Hobby Box yesterday and WOW!  It was great to sit and open each pack, sort out inserts and have the base set completed.

I hope to spend more time work on older sets.  I'm hoping to complete each Topps base set since 1970.   I'm hoping to work on all the years ending in 2 this year and then move on to ending in 3 next year.  We will see how this works.

I'm a big baseball fan following the Braves and Brewers.  I grew up a Braves fan and pulled for the Brewers and Red Sox due to the history with the Braves.  I've grown into a bigger Brewers fans the past couple of season due to the Nashville Sounds.

I look forward to what this new avenue of blogging has to offer.  I'm open to any suggestions.
