    What are some of the forgotten sets that some of us are working on..

    Since someone commented in one of my threads that they had never seen the 2001 UD Leather Bound Glove cards.
    I thought that there might be more sets that some of the newer collectors have never seen..

    Here are a few that I have been dabbling with..

    Holy smokes those are beautiful sets!

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I've been actively trying to fill in the holes for my 2003-2017 Topps Black Colorado Rockies team sets. The older these cards get, the tougher they are to find. Especially common players. They never pop up.

    I probably missed quiet a few unique and interesting sets during my hiatus from trading cards which was roughly 1999-2004. I've seen most anything before & after but I'd be interested in seeing any of the less known or rarer sets (and subsets) from that time frame.

    I'm sure I missed a lot of cool licensed Panini stuff. They lost their license right around the time I got back into collecting which was a shame.

    Good idea for a thread. The Leather Bound and Decade 70's sets reminded me that I myself have slowly been picking up a couple of GU sets from the turn of the millennium.

    I LOVED the 2001 (think it might actually be 2002, but there was only one release) Topps Super Teams set because it had so many players from great teams that don't get any modern card love (guys like Sal Bando, Mike Cuellar, Ed Kranepool, etc etc). I have all of the HOF autographs from the set and am slowly picking up the other autos and the GU cards.

    I also liked the 2002 Topps Coaches' Collection GU set, which was really cool because they are all former players, so the cards show an image of the guy in uniform for the team he was coaching/managing, as well as an image of one of his former Topps cards (and a slice of GU bat or jersey). The checklist is so full of history and baseball lifers:

    CC-AH Art Howe
    CC-AT Alan Trammell
    CC-BB Bruce Bochy
    CC-BM Buck Martinez
    CC-BV Bobby Valentine
    CC-BW Billy Williams
    CC-BBE Buddy Bell
    CC-BBR Bob Brenly
    CC-DB Dusty Baker
    CC-DL Davey Lopes
    CC-DBA Don Baylor
    CC-EH Ellie Hendricks
    CC-EM Eddie Murray
    CC-FW Frank White
    CC-HM Hal McRae
    CC-JT Joe Torre
    CC-KG Ken Griffey Sr.
    CC-LB Larry Bowa
    CC-LP Lance Parrish
    CC-MH Mike Hargrove
    CC-MS Mike Scioscia
    CC-MW Mookie Wilson
    CC-PG Phil Garner
    CC-PM Paul Molitor
    CC-TP Tony Perez
    CC-WR Willie Randolph


    Crap! I went to add some images but forgot that photo bucket blows! I need to move some images to the service here...
    HOF auto collector - I'm up to 252 different in my collection (used to have a photobucket link here, but photobucket sucks)

    GO ROCKIES!

    You mean the black parallels that are numbered to /63?

    Those are tough...

    2003 = serial #ed /52
    2004 = serial #ed /53
    2005 = serial #ed /54
    2006 = serial #ed /55
    2007 = serial #ed /56 (and copper, not black)
    2008 = serial #ed /57
    2009 = serial #ed /58
    2010 = serial #ed /59
    2011 = serial #ed /60
    2012 = serial #ed /61

    Luckily I have finished team sets from 2013-2017! It's fun, I recommend it for any team collector if they want a real challenge! Plus some of them (Arenado 2013 Topps Update Black /62; Blackmon 2011 Topps Update Black /60) sell for $100+ now when I picked them up for a few bucks each.

    I go for complete team sets as well, so any league leader cards that have multiple players on them (usually stars, and lots of Rockies players actually) are included in my team sets. So the challenge is even greater, and more expensive!

    I wish they had done a Red Sox set like that. I would have been all over it.
