I have recently connected with Rich Mueller, the Managing Editor of Sports Collectors Daily, an excellent online sports memorabilia magazine. I am going to be contributing articles about AFL cards and memorabilia, and perhaps some curatorial-type pieces on how to collect and display various types of sports memorabilia.
My first article, Collecting Autographed 1960 Fleer AFL Set Includes Unique Challenges, was published last week, and deals with the difficulties inherent in collecting an autographed version of the inaugural AFL trading card set. As you might imagine, this is not an easy project. I am roughly seven years into the collection, and still missing roughly 25% of the set.
Are there any other autographed AFL card collectors out there? What types of cards do you collect? Are you working on any projects in particular?
