My name is Johnny Diamantas. I’m a real estate investor from Tampa, Florida. I’m 31. I started collecting refractors in my early 20’s.
I collect because I enjoy the simplisitic rarity of refractors. My goal is to (try to) stick to only collecting Hall of Fame caliber players because they’re more likely to increase in value. I view my collection as a long-term investment so I don’t sell many of my refractors.
I collect only base refractors; no inserts. Also, I try to stick to Topps Chrome and Bowman Chrome because I find the other brands like Finest and Stadium Club Chrome aren’t as appealing to collectors.
I plan to eventually grade most of my refractors via PSA.
