I like comic books. A lot. I have about 14,000 comics but I'm planning on selling at least 5000 of the comics over the next few months. I have about 800
hardcover comics. Hardcover's are my collecting specialty. I used to post on this board all the time, but I had to take a break from comics for a couple
years. Now that I'm back to collecting I'm really excited about all the new material being put out in hardcover, but I also think they are starting
to put out too many hardcover's each month.
Besides comics I'm a huge baseball fan. Yankees fan since I was born, even through the long drought until 1996. I haven't missed a game on TV or
radio in 4 years (I'll never work nights again!). All time favorite player is George Brett. Current favorite players are Mariano and Arod. I'm also a
huge fan of baseball history and have a collection of 200+ baseball books.
I live on a lake and I go fishing just about every day and usually more than once. Largemouth bass are the fish of choice. I'm currently raising money to
stock my lake with smallmouth bass as well.
I'm also a photographer. My main area of interest is shooting live hardcore and punk bands. I've been doing it for about 15 years and I do it mostly
for my own personal enjoyment, though I do occasionally take on paid work.
