Hi. My name is Todd Tobias and I built the lax card archive with a lot of card input from one other member who can introduce himself if he chooses. I am from San Diego and learned about lacrosse when I played my senior year of high school when my school first started a team back in 1991.

 

I am a lifelong card collector and bought my first lacrosse card in 2014. I began collecting just vintage. I began collecting modern lacrosse cards when the San Diego Seals came to town in 2019 and I started to learn about contemporary players. Now I have some of everything - vintage, modern, company sets (Topps, Upper Deck), team-issued sets and vintage postcards.

Hi everyone. My name is Jackson Van Vlake and I go to Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. I only got to play lacrosse my senior year in high school, but I fell in love with it and began following the PLL from its inception in 2019. I am a die hard Archers fan, and only began collecting cards with the 2020 PLL championship series. You can find pictures of my collection on Twitter @VlakeVan. Really looking forward to helping grow the lacrosse card community!

Hi All

My name is Jim.  I have been collecting sports cards off and on for over 40 years.  Became a big lacrosse fan watching my son play over the last 7 years.  I have mainly been collecting 1992 and newer lacrosse cards. Looking forward to having a place to chat with other lacrosse collectors.

Hello!  My name is Jim Coughlin.  I have assisted Todd Tobias with the Lax Card Archive - although he performed the majority of the work - scanning, sizing, cropping, typing, uploading.  You name it, Todd did it.  I have been collecting cards since my youth and diversified in my twenties. focusing on the less renowned sports.  For more than twelve years I edited a newsletter on soccer card collecting.  As a long time lacrosse fan, I began collecting modern day lax cards in 1992/93 with the Nastasi MILL set.  I have long been focused on the regional team issued sets, although I am appreciative of the efforts of Upper Deck, Parkside and now Topps with their large scale issues.  I contributed to the 2019 & 2020 Parkside sets, writing many of the card backs.  I have written a number of articles on lacrosse card collecting for "Inside Lacrosse" - both the magazine (Nov. 2017) and the on-line edition (a number of pieces).  It is my hope that the Lax Card Archive helps build the lacrosse card hobby while adding to the history and recognition of this wonderful sports and its great players.

Hello,

 

My name is Ray Humphrey and I have been collecting lacrosse cards since I found the 1975 Nabisco Sugar Daddy card in 1977. I specialize in anything University of Maryland (schedules, cards, post cards, brochures...etc.) I also am an avid collector of any field lacrosse cards (2001 MLL, Upper Deck, Parkside, Topps, team issue) from any period. I have lent minor assistance to both Todd and Jim on certain local issues by the Bayhawks and Tewaaraton foundation. I am willing to assist any collector to the extent I am able. Go Terps

Here I am.  At the start of something really big.  I have three kids that are all lacrosse nuts.  I am a sports nut.  I used to joke that I could watch two guys playing catch and then the pandemic hit and I realized how much sports was a part of my life.  Now, I have the 7th ranked Master Tony Gwynn set by PSA.  I have found lacrosse cards because Tobias gave me some cards and now I’m hooked.  I spend too much money on these “card board things” as my mom used to tell me.  Something about having a hobby as I go forward in life.  I grew up in San Diego and have been a SD die hard sports fan forever.  I moved to Northern California and I couldn’t let go of my roots so I adopted the San Diego Seals (I’m a season ticket holder).  My kid’s coach in lacrosse played in the NLL and has helped me understand the game.  I’m addicted to anything lacrosse and I was an integral part in growing our local youth program and creating a team at our local public school.

My name is Travis Stevens, but most of you know me as Cardbored (@cardbored1 from Twitter).  I've been collecting cards since 1990 and used to own a trading card shop back in 2009-10.  I've been looking for alternative sports cards to get into since I feel priced out of the major sports markets these days.  I usually become obsessed with whatever I'm collecting, so I expect that I'll be watching plenty of Lacrosse this year.  I'm married and have a couple young kids.  I'm a software engineer, work in healthcare data analytics, love pro wrestling (especially going to indie events), and have an NFT business called Duck Buck NFT.  I'm looking forward to helping build this community up!

Hey gang, better late than never, but I'm here!  My name is Kevin Mason, I'm about as die hard a lacrosse fan as there is.  Played as a child, picked it back up in high school, and I currently play in the Maryland Lacrosse League as a very out of shape dude in the 30+ division.  I have memorabilia and autographs of many of the all time greats on shafts, helmets, jerseys, and balls (still need John Grant Junior on something). I have developed an unhealthy interest in trading cards these past several months when PLL jumped into the game.  I will buy anything I like, and I'm learning more every day about the hobby.  I have cards ranging from 1959 Fleer to 2021 Topps, and a little of everything in between.  I'm a huge Terps, Bayhawks (RIP), and Whipsnakes fan, and I will willingly disclose everything in my entire collection and am always open for trading.  You can also find me on twitter at @TwoHandScoop.  Cheers!

Hi, I'm new to this site, I've been collecting sports cards from the time I was old enough to walk on my own to Wawa to buy baseball card's from all kinds of sports, I fell in love with lacrosse at an early age, huge Wing's fan and STH since the 87 day's when they came  back from the 75 season and presently now from the 2018 season,  My first lax card's I got were from the 92-93 STX Nastasi, recently I've been buying card's off other sites until someone spoke of this site and said how I would enjoy it, which I really do, it's like lax card heaven here. I am looking for a lot to add to my collection, I would love to find out how purchase any card's available here, I know they are very hard to come by, just looking for some point of direction, thank you so much for your time to read this and hope to find out some info soon. I mainly look for the Wing's or Barrage card's but I do have some other NLL teams I would like to add also.

Hi everyone,

I'm Eric Murray but you all would know me as fromthebenchyt on twitter or fromthebench on Instagram. I'm from New Brunswick Canada and played box lacrosse back in 2004 & 2005 when organized lacrosse first came to my city. Always loved the game and followed the NLL. Queue the Halifax Thunderbirds becoming only 2 and a half hours away along with the PLL forming and I went all in on the sport. I now volunteer and sit on my local lacrosse committee as well as coaching U10 box lacrosse last year. As for cards I collected when I was younger and then started back up with sports cards about 2 years ago like a lot of people. Collect mostly hockey and football before the initial PLL set came out. Big Redwoods fan and always looking to add to the collection of them along with guys that play for the Thunderbirds.

Hello all,

I'm new here, and thank you for letting me join. My name is Mark Forder (USA). The reason I came to this site is because a box of papers I have. The papers are from about 1860's through the mid 1890's.  There are over 2,000 pieces of paper (or more) in this box alone that were stored away in a basement of a bank that my wife once worked at. One day as the manager she was told that the building was going to be sold and that a company was coming to clear the entire basement / building out. The company came in and took pretty much everything and threw it into dumpsters including this box I have. That's where I pulled it from. 

The box was collected by a single individual back then, Charles S. Steele. In it there are papers from Firefighting, CDV's of actresses like Lotta Crabtree, Railroad, Steam Boat, Base Ball amateur and professional and more. Some of the papers feel as new as the day they were put in the box while others did not fair that well due to the dampness in the basement. There was a two foot wide steam of running water in the basement.

That leads me to a post card that I am trying to find out more about and Ironically the same exact one is on this site. I will find the right board to post it on to share it with you. Again the condition is not great. 

 

---Mark
