Work in Progress

Hello Bloggers,

My name is Keith and I'm a New York Mets and West Virginia Mountaineers fan.  I've just got back into collecting cards after a long hiatus this past year or so.  I currently collect New York Mets and West Virginia Mountaineers autographs and game used memorabilia.  I also keep an eye out for some Pittsburgh Pirates stuff being I'm a displaced Mets fan in WV and have 2 young boys who love baseball so we will watch the Pirates.  One will be 5 and the other 2.  The Mets are my favorite team by far, but I will root for the Pirates except for when they play the Mets.  My goal in the blog world is to meet other card lovers and establish trade partners although it may take me awhile being I'm still accumulating cards and trade bait.  I'm working on scanning my collection to to have a visual guide to what I have in my collection.  Feel free to drop me a line as I love to talk cards and sports in general.  Let me know what you like to collect and I can start picking up stuff.  I have a few friends who collect so I might be able to find something you like or need. Go checkout my friend Matt's blog at Bob Walk the Plank, he is a huge Pirates fan.

 The pictures above are of two MLB baseballs and the one on the left is a foul ball from Darryl Strawberry that my dad caught for at Shea Stadium back in 1987 while we were sitting in 3rd base box seats.  The one on the right is my 4 yrs old ball that he got when he was 3 from the Pirates ball boy between innings while we were sitting right behind the dugout at PNC Park.  He was ecstatic the rest of the game and the whole way home.


  1. Looking good! It won't take long to get trade bait. We'll bust a few more boxes and we'll be good to go. Lots of people put the Gypsy Queen and Ginter sets together, so I'm sure you will be able to help there too.

  2. Catching a ball from a MLB game is a bucket list item. JUST ONCE, DANGIT!!!

    1. I was there when he caught it and was ecstatic as an 8 yr old. Have another couple memories/stories I'll divulge at later time.

  3. Welcome to the blogging community! Site looks good! Look forward to reading your posts in the future.
