I'm Joe, aka "Hartlandman" across the street, formerly known as "MonkaPop". I'm going to try and read all of the posts here and join in somewhere down the line, if you'll have me, that is!.
I've been involved with card collecting since 1988, and I have put together a nice little memorabilia collection over the years as well. I've completed several high-end insert sets, and own a couple of Master Collections.
...where I display some of it. I'm also one of the owners of Hartland Collectibles, L.L.C., and we make sport and western figurines. If anyone would like to visit that site, just let me know. (I'm not trying to "spam" here).
I'm going to go read, and hope to get to know some of you.
