Wink You know you're obsessed with baseball [cards] when...
When people mention Carlos Santana (the guitarist), you mention his position, number, and batting average.

You put business cards in a penny sleeve.

You get WAY too much mail.

You know how to spell Saltalamacchia.

Let's get some more of these!

When you hear the word auto you dont think of cars.
You call gu/autos hits, like a druggie getting his fix by taking some hits off of a pipe.
Ill think of more but thats the only ones as of now...

You go through 3 rolls of tape a week

You look on the back of random items (ie. fruit, remote, soda cans) looking for stats and serial numbers

I started my own spreadsheet with collection name, player name, auto or game used, card number and high and low buy values. My wife said I was insane. I told her I was teaching my oldest (8) to learn to use a spreadsheet. He was outside playing at the time.

You cant go grocery shopping without picking up a few packs.

When you are about to buy something not card related and you compare the cost to what kind of cards you could get. ( Im guilty of this one often )

You set your alarm for 4 AM not because you have an early shift but because you want to snipe.

You ask your child's school photographer if the wallet sized can be cut instead to 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches.
