    Ive been collecting Kirby Puckett cards since 1987. Im getting really close to 4,000 unique cards now and could possibly hit that number by the end of the year. Let me know if anyone has anything interesting available. Thanks!

    Let the MLB know youd like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.

    I have found that I really like the multiplayer auto cards when they are done well. First off, they need to have a player photo. A lot of the newer and larger multis have no player photos. Those sticker dump cards and nice for bulk autos, but they are essentially "cuts" in my mind.

    That Griffey/Thomas/Thome is especially nice. I would rather see Mariners/White Sox/Dodgers personally though, but how cool is that card for a White Sox fan especially. All three shown as White Sox would have been odd, but cool too. The quad is great too, but Hafner hurts it now. For a non-HOFer in that spot, give me Belle (Indians) and I'd be happy.

    It's fun to go back and see those multi cards later, after some of the players have changed teams. I don't recall the specifics, but there was a triple where 1 player was a Dodger at the time and the others were not, but by the time all three retired, each had played for the Dodgers. Bonus for me!

    I don't specifically collect HOF players per se, but have pocket collections of many of them, including most extensively Thomas & Carew. I collect autographs, so anyone making the HOF needs to be in the collection (if I can, some of the long deceased that get elected later make that tough). If there is a good chance the guy is going to be enshried, hopefully I already snagged one or more. I don't forsee any surprises through 2025, having nearly 100% of the eligibles already, minus a few long shots. I think Lincecum was the biggest name I saw that I don't believe I have already. The Veteran Committee is where you can get stung. Looks like a few from those categories potentially hitting ballots soon that I may need to track down before it is too late.

    Hi Erwin - I have been collecting Robbie Alomar since 1990, and occasionally I blather on about it here:

    Collecting Roberto Alomar. Over 4000 unique cards, but always looking for those I'm missing!
