I consider myself a set collector first and foremost. The best part of this hobby for me is finding a set I want to attempt, accumulating and organizing the cards, plugging the last few holes and then displaying the set in a binder. When I collected as a kid though, I focused on players more than anything else. I had that one binder, like most of my friends, that contained just about every card of a star player that I got my hands on.
In my second round of collecting, I've been meaning to settle on a hockey player to collect for quite some time now, and I've decided to collect my favorite active player, David Krejci of the Boston Bruins. My plan is to grow my collection, and reveal one new card each time Krejci registers a goal this season with the Bruins. This is only Krejci's second full season in the league so he doesn't have a ton of cards out there yet, so we'll see if I can outpace his scoring with my acquisition of cards. I've casually picked up a few Krejci cards already over the past couple of years so first here's a list of the cards I've already featured on the blog:
Hopefully I'll have a chance to post the next card soon!
