But that's not the club I'm here to talk about today.
While everybody was busy focusing on Stadium Club, I was secretly working on my own club. Two of them actually. The Luis Torrens fan club and the "People who have a T206 in their collection" club.
The latter was one that I only mentioned once (as a joke at that) but one that (I think) I was working on while on the sidelines.
Of course it all started last year when I finally picked up a T206 of my own and put myself in the club.
The feeling of getting a card from a set so iconic and more importantly so old as the T206 set is quite something. And that something was powerful enough for me to keep scooping up more when the price was right and to give them away when I felt that somebody else should have the privilege of adding such a big piece of cardboard history to their collection.
And I did that three times in 2014. First with Night Owl Cards, then with The Lost Collector and near the end of the year with Waiting 'til Next Year.
I could be wrong but for the most part it looked like they didn't mind finally adding a card that's so frigging old to their respective collections.
And here in 2014 I've already introduced one more person to the club. As I gave my collecting buddy Mr. Anco in Japan a T206 for his Indians PC.
That's four people I've managed to introduce to the club so far. Unfortunately I came to the blogosphere too late to introduce guys like Nick or Fuji or Dan or Mark H. to the club, but despite that there will be a fifth person soon enough.
As always thanks for stopping by and take care :).
