    Ooh nice stuff. The only Grieve 1/1 I have is a Topps Gallery printing plate, I was mostly concentrating on football when he was with the A's.




    Some of my favorite Hattebergs, he wasn't in a ton of sets with the A's:

    How about some Goudeys? I wouldn't normally go for a "miscut" card but there's a sliver of white border on the right side of the Grove, good enough for me on this one.











    Bonus: one of my favorite autographs in my collection.




    And some more Grove:



    The National Treasures card is a GU hat/25. Probably my most wanted GU card is a Grove Leather Bound from 2001 UD Gold Glove, but those don't pop up often and are pretty pricey.

    Maybe I can theme some of these posts to birthdays...July 13 is Ryan Ludwick's birthday.




    Ludwick was drafted by the A's but traded to the Rangers (with some others) for Carlos Pena before he reached the majors.




    Hot Prospects Pena/Corey Patterson dual jersey is 02/10, single jersey is 30/50


    Pena only stuck with Oakland for half a season (blocking Scott Hatteberg from playing first base as detailed in Moneyball) before being involved in a trade that netted the A's Ted Lilly.






    Lilly was later traded to Toronto for Bobby Kielty and...shoot, I don't have my Bobby Kielty cards scanned yet, if I even have any good ones. So here's some more non-A's Ted Lilly cards, I collected him because he went to high school in central California pretty close to where I was living at the time.

    I will always love the A's for giving Big Frank a chance in 2006 and again in 2008.

    Wow that Thomas is a beauty, I don't think I've ever seen a 2006 Topps Chrome Super before, nice design with the gold borders.

    July 14 is Tim Hudson's birthday, here are a few of the favorites from my collection:



    '99 Bowman Gold is 26/99


    Recollection Collection is 09/39












    ...and even a few cool ones with the Braves:

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Some of my favorite cards are the various 3-4 player autograph cards UD put out in the mid to late 2000's.



    I feel like I have another one of these I haven't scanned yet.

    Some 1994 Stadium Club First Days (I have the team set minus Rickey, but not all are scanned).















    I loved the holofoil First Day stamps from 1993 and 1994, don't know why they moved away from that for a dull 1995 set before dropping the First Days altogether, then bringing them back as more generic numbered inserts. And for the most recent TSC sets they've been pretty boring, too.
