Mike Rumley-Wells's Wantlist

Hi, OBC Brothers and Sisters! I'm honored to be a member! Thanks for taking me into the group.

Several members have been tremendously helpful and generous in my process of joining, so I'm going to give them plugs right here: Cap Jeff Sinclair got me excited about this group in the first place--"the candy store steps!"--offered to mentor me, and sent some terrific cards my way; Rick Johnson, thanks for helping me think through some deeper issues of trading cards and bestowing an AMAZING "Starter Kit" box of cards including my first Mantle (talk about child-like joy!); and Rick Lyons, the Hero who sent me Stan Bahnsen to complete my first childhood set, 78 Topps!

I have to add here Lynn Miller, who single-handedly turned four sets (72, 73, 74 Topps and 74 Topps Traded) from have lists to wantlists!

I'm a missionary in Nicaragua, learning Spanish and and how to love God and my neighbor (I've got a ways to go on all three). If you want to hear more about that, ask me questions and I'll try not to lie.

My wife and I have four amazing and exhausting children, and different opinions as to the enduring value of cardboard. But she is patient and loves me...so here I am.

I have aspirations (or delusions) of completing the 1950-1980 Topps and Bowman run, or of passing the torch on to one of my children to complete it. The challenge for me is that I was born in 1968 and only started collecting in the late '70s. My dad would tell me stories about Ted Williams and Stan Musial while I opened packs and sorted through my cards, but he had not collected so I didn't get any Mantle-stuck-in-my-spokes hand-me-downs. Still, it's a labor of love, however long it takes. I gratefully accept cards in any condition and tend to put special cards and favorite players in toploaders or screwdowns even when they have already been...well loved.

Thanks!
Mike Rumley-Wells
