I’m Joe Shlabotnik. I’ve been collecting since 1974, and since I’ve never done any purges until fairly recently, I’ve got way too much stuff.
The purpose of this blog is to keep me focused on the task of organizing, focusing and purging my collection, and sharing all the cool stuff I discover/rediscover along the way.
It’s also my social outlet for all things collecting, because none of my “real life” friends are into baseball cards.
My teams are the Mets, Orioles and Steelers, but I also love attending minor league and college baseball games. At various points in the past, I’ve been a fan of various NHL teams, NASCAR racing and minor league soccer.
Check out Joe Shlabotnik’s Cards! (My COMC store)… Any profits are used to buy cards from other COMC dealers in order to enhance the world-famous Shlabotnik collection. In other words, nobody’s getting rich here. Well, OK, maybe the COMC guys are getting rich, but I’m not.
