    Answered all 20. I had a hard time telling if my votes were submitted. Pretty standard questions here.

    The only question I had trouble with was Question 14.

    Being primarily a box breaker, I collect whatever comes out of the products I buy, whether it’s autos, materials, cut signatures, or memorabilia (such as auto’d balls or mini helmets).

    I collect sets, teams and players. I didn’t know how to choose!! This was fun.

    I like to call myself a “catch all” collector. I collect a little bit of everything as far as baseball goes. I do collect more Red Sox, and PC Pedroia and Middlebrooks, but I don’t exclusively look for any one team or players.

    Question 14 should include “vintage type collections” as a collector category.
