The Battery

I've created this website to share and manage my sports collectibles.

The focus of my collection is vintage and modern baseball cards related to the Braves franchise. This includes their stints as the Boston (1912-1935, 1941-1952), Milwaukee (1953-1965), and Atlanta Braves (1966 to present), as well as their various incarnations as the Boston Red Stockings (1871-1875), Red Caps (1876-1882), Beaneaters (1883-1906), Doves (1907-1910), Rustlers (1911), and Bees (1936-1940).

I also collect cards of Atlanta Crackers (1901-1965), a minor league team that has been affiliated with the Braves and other major league franchises.

Lastly, I have side collections related to various stars and hall-of-famers, University of Georgia football, Freddie Freeman, golf, and the Atlanta Flames.
