    There's a guy who calls himself SI King. Supposed to be the top dog when it comes to collecting autographed versions of sports illustrated. He's pretty well known.
    Collecting Jeff Bagwell all day every day!
    Current Jeff Bagwell count: 4,637 different cards!
    Also collecting Jerry Stackhouse! 751 different cards!
    Also collecting Jack Lambert and football players from all Texas colleges!

    I have every issue from 1976 to 2010 stacked neatly in my basement by year. Just can't part with them. Stopped subscription in 2010/11 since I was running out of shelve space. Use to read magazine from cover to cover. I miss it.....

    The funny thing is, most people want a mint for their magazines or they can't give them away. Then there is high shipping costs for them to boot. There doesn't seem to be much of a middle ground, which is frustrating for team or player collectors who just need a stray copy here and there. I have boxes and boxes of magazines and I bet if I listed them for next to nothing, few would sell.

    Certain "first covers " sell well - Jordan Gretzky Tiger etc.... also some college teams have great followings like the Crimson Tide. I just can't break up something that was near and dear to me for most of my life.

    No, I don't collect them but I wish I had kept all the ones I had from the 60's and 70's.
