About Me

     Hello, my name is Chuck, a big baseball fan in Tennessee. I started collecting baseball cards when I was in 3rd grade and my first pack was 1987 Topps for 35 cents. I love math, so I got into card collecting at first because I loved all the stats on the back of the cards. After awhile, I came around to enjoy this sport called 'baseball' that all these baseball cards seem to be centered around. Ha!

     In high school I discovered I enjoyed making money. So I opened up a makeshift card shop on my front porch. We lived on a busy street, so I was able to generate some business when I wasn't in school. For college I went to a business school to pursue a degree in Marketing in hopes I've running a lucrative business one day. I wasn't sure what kind of business, maybe baseball cards, maybe something else, I just knew I wanted to make a lot of money. But later in college I started attending a church and decided to follow Jesus. That was a game changer. Over time Jesus changed my heart's desires. Today I still have a strong desire to make money, but it's so I can GIVE it away rather than keep it for myself. I long to give so I can help others who are much less fortunate than I am. There is a good chance when you buy something from my site that I will donate some of the money to an organization that fights sex trafficking (International Justice Mission) or feeds people that are literally starving to death (Compassion International) or provides life-saving/life-changing surgeries to children in developing countries whose families cannot afford surgey (CURE International). But I don't want to mention all of this as a way to make you "feel good" about buying from me, I would rather you experience the joy of generosity yourself. Rather than buy sports cards from me, I would love it if you used your money instead to visit one of the web sites I've mentioned (or one you are more familiar with), read their stories, and give toward a cause you believe in. We in the United States are the richest nation in human history, and I believe we have a responsibility to help others who are less fortunate. In doing so, I guarantee you will not regret it, whether it's giving your money, time, or other resources.

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. - 1 Timothy 6:17-19 New International Version (NIV)

There was a time in my life I thought nothing would be better than making a lot of money for myself. I could have stayed away from God for fear He would have me give that up that desire. Instead He modified that desire into something even better: Living to give instead of living to get. If you are afraid to know God because you're scared He may want you to give up something you enjoy I promise you that whatever that desire is He will modify it or swap it for something even better.
