Matt has been collecting sports cards for 27 years, since the age of 5, starting with 1985 Topps. He remembers the days of walking down to the local White Hen Pantry to spend the $1 or $2 he had in his pocket, opening the packs slowly, reading the statistics and trading away all of the “good” cards for Chicago Cubs cards! He has been hooked ever since. Matt’s current collection focuses around Chicago based sports teams and baseball prospects.
Matt has a background in baseball, playing collegiately at Purdue University and spending time working with the Anaheim Angels Scouting and Player Development departments. Baseball is truly a passion of his and you can find him at Wrigley Field 15-20 times every summer.
