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.
