    I suspect that most collectors really have no issues collecting beyond their "Home Team". Unless you are specific and exclusive to a single team, for example, you might not actively even seek...

    I don't specifically collect HOF players per se, but have pocket collections of many of them, including most extensively Thomas & Carew. I collect autographs, so anyone making the HOF needs to be in...

    I have found that I really like the multiplayer auto cards when they are done well. First off, they need to have a player photo. A lot of the newer and larger multis have no player photos. Those...

    Not saying Tanner couldn't do it, but I would assume that to be a completely different skill set. Customizing SLUs will most likely require repainting. This requires the hand of an artist. Tanner...

    Yep, that is the same copy that I mentioned in my story. The one that introduced me to the existance of this card. I don't see that card selling for even close to half of what they are asking, but...

    There are a few events or situations in the card collecting world that have affected me in a negative manner. Most of these have seared a bad memory into my brain which I will take to my grave, but...

    This sounds very textbook late 80s to early 90s collection here. Enough key words to sound knowledgable at the time, but nothing specific enough to show current knowledge of the market now. Odds...
