I really like having an LCS, especially one that takes the time to get to know you and your collecting interests. Recently the owner of one of the two LCSs in my area shot me an email letting me know he had picked up a lot of 9 Panini Coopertown Autograph cards. He shot me the list and I identified the two from the list that I needed for my HOF Auto collection. I was able to stop by the shop a few days later and pick up these two new cards for my collection.
I set a goal at the beginning of the year to add 4 HOF Autos to my collection. I have now added 5 with my pick up of Early Wynn and Johnnie Mize together and Paul Molitor right at the beginning of the year. I did give a list of players I would target and only Molitor appears on the list but I am counting this as a collecting goal that is completed. I will keep my eyes open for more autos but I am happy to have hit a goal so early in the year.
