Welcome to my new blog called “The Dutch Card Guy”. As the name suggests, I am based “all the way” in Europe (The Netherlands). I am a fairly new collector that caught the baseball card virus when living in the US for a few years. Since returning to Europe I have toyed with the idea of starting to collect baseball cards. The final push came when I saw a collection of 15,000 cards being offered here in The Netherlands for only a few hundred dollars. Of course the first reaction would be to think it would all be 80ties cardboard but actually it included a nice collection of vintage cards as well as some very nice “post-2006” cards, hence I decided to go for it. Since then (Oct ’11) I have bought some hobby boxes and participated in several box breaks online (see my Trade Trail overview). I will use this blog to keep you up-to-date on my cardboard ventures.
Thanks for reading my first post and I hope to see you back soon !
