    Those look nice. But if I remember correctly, Topps only wanted sketches of current players for the You Sketch It promotion so your cards had no chance of being used.

    I've lost a lot of LCS near me in the NW suburbs of Chicago during the last 20 years. It's hard seeing a shop shutter its doors, especially when the owner is "one of the good ones." But sometimes a...

    1999 UD Ovation does it for me. Was also a big fan of 1993 Ultra. 1997 Fleer EX 2000 is also a favorite. 1960 Topps for a base Topps set.
