With that, I introduce "Grand Cards," a site primarily devoted to my Curtis Granderson collection, but with significant space devoted to my Detroit Tigers card collection as well.
My story could probably be repeated by millions of people across the country--I am a baseball nut who collected everything as a kid, but just grew out of it as I got older. I had new interests, the Tigers were mired in a decade of obsolescence, none of my friends collected etc. Then, after the 2006 season, I thought that it would be fun to buy a Tigers team set to commemorate the season. I was hooked. I needed to have the 2007 set too--it acknowledged some of last year's success! I should probably get 2005, because those young players really set the table. Plus, I already had the 1984 set from when I was younger--I needed to be prepared for another championship. Before I knew it I was back in the thick of things.
With the "Who's Your Tiger" campaign in full swing prior to the 2006 season, I became a Granderson devotee too and in the last year or so have decided to add a player collection to my overall Tigers sets. With that, the idea of Grand Cards (it sounds so much better than Grandy Cards doesn't it? And so much more flexibility!) was born and we are off and running.
So there you go, an abbreviated history of this blog. I look forward to sharing my collection with you.
