    When I started with pre war I was building the monster casually. Got into a late night convo about a card with a member here who was breaking up his own monster--- was almost $850 which at the time was a massive purchase and the most I ever spent on anything not a car....... So glad I did it. Not only does it look fantastic but it set my T206 collecting into high gear and the card itself has appreciated greatly. I hope I never HAVE to sell it because I never will willingly sell it.

    Thanks guys-- I remember having to think over it for days before I pulled the trigger. I just looked at my spreadsheet and it was $828 in August 2011. Can't believe that I had to think over that one!!

    Had a line on a centered Green Cobb a few years ago but it fell through. The market on green cobbs has gotten our of hand so I'll have to wait. Picked up a bat off two years ago so I'm getting there

    I have favorites pop up all the time ... I guess it depends upon what is incoming, HOWEVER - all time? I'd have to say this, most likely:



    A game used fielding glove signed/inscribed in silver ink. Jose trade it to me when I was at his house. I'm not quite certain how I could get anything better than that, honestly. Honorable mention goes to my game used 1989 World Series baseball signed by the team:



    If you are talking about cards, that is much, MUCH tougher for me. I have categories and refuse to compare them: 80's prototypes/variations, 90's-00's, customs, premium relics, 1/1's, etc. Ultimately, I could see myself saying my top favorite card is actually 15 cards

    It will likely only be surpassed when I finally snag a copy of his only pack-issued auto from the 2013 BBM Legendary Foreigners 2 Deep Impact set.

    Sold off the Cuddyer card collection, only collect full game used now.
    Here is my favorite piece/s:
    Combo Home Run Bat and Ball
    Will try and make this short....
    Date is June 9th, 2011. We were at the Twins game sitting in the Right Field stands. I had brought my camera with to take some pictures of Cuddyer that night. Got some shots of him in RF and up to bat. In the 5th inning Cuddyer crushed a ball to deep center field, a 3 Run HR into the bullpen.
    Fast forward to mid August. At a Saturday afternoon game and in between innings I decide to go to the pro shop to check out what Cuddyer items the have today. The shop had about 4-5 game used bats of his. It seemed that nearly every game, Cuddy busted a bat. I picked thru them and decided I would purchase one, on a whim I picked the one with the most pinetar and it had some infield dirt and grass stuck to it. On the way home I decided to look up the MLB holo number to see when it was from, amazingly enough, it was from the game on June 9th. I thought to myself, thats cool, we were at that game, cool to have a bat from a game we were at.
    Fast forward again to the beginning of September. Cuddyer was a big supporter of a local charity Cheerful Givers. In their annual fall auction, they had a couple of Cuddyer items, one of which stood out. It was a Home Run ball....THE Home Run ball from the June 9th game, autographed and Fully Inscribed. When I saw this, I knew I was going to win the ball at any cost. At that point, it also triggered something with me, the bat.....I took pictures at the game.....could the bat be the Home Run bat??? I quickly opened up my image files from that game, zoomed in on the bat during his at bats, pulled out the gamer I bought, compared the bat in hand to the bat in the images I had taken, sure enough, the wood grain matched up exactly on both. I had the Home Run bat from that game!!! I ended up winning the ball for a great price, so here it is, a Home Run Bat and Ball combo of Cuddyer (note I have since had the bat signed and inscribed with the same inscription as the ball).............

    That is so cool about Cuddyer. He is such a nice guy. A good friend and former teammate of his was Jim Thome. And the gem of my collection is a TTM auto of Thome on a 1992 Donruss base card.
