About Base Card Hero

Hello! My name is Ryan and I am the creator of basecardhero.com. I started collecting baseball cards at the age of seven during the beginning of the junk wax era.

Over the years I have collected baseball, football, basketball and hockey. I continued collecting until the mid-1990’s when the collecting bubble had popped. By the time I began high school, my interest in collecting had vanished.

As I got older my interest in collecting came back. Today my focus has changed to baseball, football, and basketball. I currently collect Minnesota related teams with a strong focus on players who are University of Minnesota alumni and former and current Minnesota Twins players.

Set building has been a recent obsession of mine. eBay has provided a vast amount of junk wax era items at a great price. Cards that were out of my price range as a kid is now obtainable as an adult.
