Yes, folks. Decision time. Over the past few years or so, I've altered my collection habits drastically. First, I need to provide conext. I used to open wax like crazy and collect autographs at random. Then in 2008, I moved onto strictly in-person/TTM autographs and signed baseballs. I've been doing that ever since and it's been more enjoyable. You may remember from last year when I purchased a 1960 Topps Sandy Koufax PSA auto. Well, I've been selling some doubles off lately and I've almost acquired the funds to go after a nice item. The dilemma is that I'm stuck on what to go after. I've narrowed it down to three and wanted some feedback! Mind you, these are in no particular order:
1. 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. PSA signed rookie
I remember pulling this card out of a pack back in the day (I still have it) and the nostalgia speaks for itself. If you're going to target an authenticated signed card from Junior, this is it.
2. Satchel Paige signed business card PSA
I've always wanted to add a Paige autograph and there's a few signed business cards floating around from his Springfield days. He's arguably the greatest negro league pitcher of all-time and the lore that comes with Satch is legendary.
3. 2001 Topps Ichiro PSA signed rookie OR 2001 Upper Deck signed PSA rookie
Yes, Ichiro will become the first Japanese-born Hall of Famer. I've always wanted to add an Ichiro and like Griffey, you go for the gusto. Rookie card, or bust.
So FCB faithful, what say you????
