You can click on any card in each photo album and it will take you to a slide show picturing all 15 cards in that album. Just do the same thing for all 3 albums per page and all 7 pages of the website.

I'm signed up with ImageEvent. The whole thing only costs about $20 a year and is much easier to edit than a regular website I once created. Since signing up, I've had a blast scanning my collection. I've learned a lot about scanning in the process. In fact, I'm now rescanning cards I scanned just six months ago because I'm getting such good image quality now ...
At the url below, feel free to browse through my problem, in its relative entirety, and I invite you to witness, electronically, the depth of my true lack of discipline, as satired in my separate page entitled "Collection Focus"
I was born and have lived most of my life in England and followed football, cricket, rugby (both codes), etc growing up.
I've always loved all sports but particularly those with bats and balls - cricket and later on baseball thanks to television coverage and then the internet. Plus, I have always been a collector since childhood - comics, badges, lego, Star Wars figures, anything.....Probably drove my parents crazy at times!
I looked into collecting cricket memorabilia but its not that large or diverse a market. But I have been aware that there is a massive collecting base tied to baseball and really explored baseball cards thanks to ebay about two and a half years ago. I kind of jumped in like a headless chicken and was buying anything and everything without really thinking about what I was doing.
Now I'm a little more focused and collect a few sets including the t206 which have looks and history as key points of attraction!
Thanks for the kind words about the site!!

Thanks for the kind words. I'm sure I've said this before, but your rookie set rocks! Especially, those Negro Leaguers! I'm not gonna unload any of my cards any time soon - still plugging along toward completion, ya know. Quite the adventure.
As a few others have said, imageevent.com is a great way for web-design novices like myself to build a decent hobby site. I've found it well worth the $25 annual fee - not just for sharing scans of my cards but for reducing my reliance on eBay.
Thanks to this thread I went to work on my own photo-sharing site. I liked the ImageEvent layout the best so went with them. Very easy to use, upload, edit etc. Still was a lot of work with all the scanning. I didn't post all of my collection. Too much scanning. But I have posted my D304, T3 and '33 Goudey sets plus various single cards. I also made an album of photos I took at several baseball related exhibits I visited last fall including the Burdick collection at the Met and the Hall of Fame. Have a look!
Jeff: There's a few other beauts in my "BBHoF: The First Class" album. Otherwise that's it. No T206 Wagner, no '52 Mantle, nary a 19th century card, nothing over a six and no secret stash of "ultra high grade pre-War baseball cards". I have a few other sets I will eventually post once I can face the scanner again but they are of the beater-ish sort. But, yeah, that W600 is a humdinger. Figured it was as close as I'd ever get to the Alpha Engraving McGraw.
my buying vintage has slowed down heavily due to the fact that I'm in the process right now of trying to get each living HOFer's Auto on their R.C, so my focus is really on that right now, which hasn't allowed me the extra funds to put toward vintage,
I am currently collecting Hockey Hall of Famers. (In the past I completed a T201, 1961 Topps Baseball, and most of a 1954 Topps Baseball ) which were all sold off.
I need about 15 hof'ers to complete my hockey set and that should take me about another six months to a year to do. Then I'll just collect vintage hockey items and other examples of my HOF'ers that I like.
I'd show pictures but most of it isn't photographed or in a registry. I'd like to have most of it in an SGC registry in the future.
About 6 years ago I started collecting T-206 Dan Moeller cards. Why you may ask? Wanted to focus on one player in the common end of the T206 spectrum, looked to the minor leaguers (he played for the Jersey City Skeeters (great name!)), loved the portrait style, and we shared the same last name (not too many over the years).
Well to make a long story short, ended up becoming obsessed. Have become to foremost expert on Dan Moeller's career, so if you have any questions:) At one time had about 16 as I was going for higher conditioned examples, but have since gradually sold off many of my higher graded Moeller examples, to just focus on one each of lower grade back examples and scarcer backs.
I currently have 6 different T-206 backs and one Imperial C-46.
Love the pic a while back of Ted's DRUM Moeller, its now my screen saver! For what its worth I have created my own back scarcity for this one particular player over the years by closely fowllowing internet, ebay, and auction sales for the past 5 years. I have always wondered if other minor league commons have the same or different ratios in back availability and if they all have a similar production ratio. For anyone that may be interested on a "common minor league back level of difficulty ratio scale for Dan Moeller" feel free to email me or if you have a unique Moeller back PM me as well, as I would love to see it.
