Almost anyone in any type of job collects business cards to keep up with their contacts, but when you're in the TV business the collection of business cards can grow to be quite diverse and interesting.
A lot of my cards are Police, Fire, EMS cards. This was one of the various models of Sheriff Gerald K. Hege cards.
There are also lots of Laywers, politicians, government officials and a plethera of tow truck companies.
Some of my favorite cards are from the local NASCAR teams.
And the collection wouldn't be complete without a ton of cards from other TV reporters and photogs that I have run into or worked with over the past 13 years.
I met Jim Cantore at a NASCAR Race a couple of years ago.
Another staple business card is the 'free food' card and the 'buy 5 get one free' card.
And cards to get us back to great places to eat. (interesting opaque plastic card.)
This card is for that one day that me and some deputy get into a pissing match....
That's on the back of this.....
I also have cards from a familiar blogging buddy....
Some of my card collection goes back to the mid to late eighties when I was just a kid. This one is my parents 'Show' card from their country music singing days.
Most of the cards I collect get deposited onto my computer desk until I take the time to insert them into the card holding book.
I haven't kept up with getting the cards inserted into the book lately.
