    Big Collecting Milestone!

    As I found out a couple years ago, March 12th marks the anniversary of collecting.* I found an old journal from elementary school at my parent's house that said as much:



    Since today marks the 29th anniversary of when I discovered my love for cardboard, I thought it would be a good time to show off my latest collecting milestone:



    It is important to note that I didn't REALLY start*on my Canseco collection until 2014, so the below is*the result of four years of laser focus - much of this, I can thank many of you for pointing me in the right direction when you see a rare Canseco pop up.* THANK YOU!!!


    Shown below are the 1,000+ unique pack-pulled Jose Canseco autographs & relics in my collection.































    While I was at it, I calculated some other interesting numbers:

    Over 200 1/1s
    Over 140 unique cards numbered to /5 or less
    Over 160 unique cards numbered to /10 or less
    Over 270 unique cards numbered to /25 or less

    To add it all up, that makes a total of nearly 800 cards that are numbered to 25 or less.

    The pictures above represent approximately 20% of my entire collection

    Thank you all again so much for all your help in building my collection!

    Damn dude...

    Did you count your customs or are they a separate category? Nvm, just read pack pulled...

    So, how many different Canseco customs have you done also?

    To accomplish all that in 4 years is mind boggling.

    I'm not big on PSA cards, though I have a copy of each of his main rookies in PSA 10 format, but since the 1987 Topps rookie cup card is the one that started it all for me, I went ahead and grabbed a PSA 10 version of it. That makes #56 for me!
