    Anyone working on any projects?

    It's a lazy Sunday, so I figured I would see what you guys are working on. I am doing a project, but I am also trying to get most-all of my non-personalized autographs sent to JSA, but I have a stack of hockey cards that I could locate US adresses for so I am going to try and hammer them out. I found 2 RC of Pat Murray, and 2 Logo Flyers cards (these work great for autographs). It should take a while to get them all sent out.

    After the major project ends, I am going to solely work on vintage TTMs until I go to college. I hope to nab 2-300 hundred of them.

    So what else are you guys working on?

    TBTwinsFan- I wouldn't worry about slabbing your cards if you are keeping them for yourself. You know they are real. Nice slabs are great to have, but the costs will add up. I spend that money on more cards and stamps.

    Therion- Once Clint Barmes has played I'll send an auto your way, unless you're looking for something in particular for him.


    As for me:
    1991 Topps set (have 96/792)
    1991 Topps Traded set (have 12/132)
    1955-1966 Topps Gene Freese cards (have 10/11)
    2010 Topps 2020 (have 2/20)

    Probably forgetting some minor ones.

    I am not doing it for authenticity, except on a couple, I am doing it for possible re-sale value, because if I go to college, I would rather sell a bunch of authentic's (vintage is basically what I am authenticating... not all of them). It's also for protection and looks.

    I'm working on the 1989 Score Football set, though I haven't devoted much time to it in quite a while.

    Sweet. I'd be much obliged. I was hoping I still had a 1991 Topps Curtis Wilkerson, but that is a popular set and I'm all out. If I put together another signing (though that is highly unlikely) I'll get one for you.

    Re: Anyone working on any projects?

    my side project(not just ttm), is to get an auto of every national ever. I think the hardest I have left is Frank Robinso, or Soriano. or maybe Strasburg(although he is rumored to be signing at natsfest) and Harper(when called up)

    "I don't lose sleep at night because my salary is X amount of dollars when I think it should be Y amount of dollars.
    I lose sleep at night because I've been in the league five years and we still haven't won a championship.
    I wake up in the middle night frustrated because we lost out in the first round and
    I want to see our players hoist the Stanley Cup.
    That's why I lose sleep. I don't worry about 13 months from now not having a paycheck."

    I thought about doing it for the Nats too, but I probably won't since many of those guys won't sign TTM. Zim did and I am going to have it slabbed so I know for sure...

    That should be a fun project!

    SCAN TIME

    1955 topps Brooklyn Bums auto'd team set. I am just missing Hodges and Jackie Robinson. I'd like to have them all in uniform holders shadowboxed around a 1955 pennant with a press pin or something else neat. I have been working on this one more than 5 years. Also working very very slowly on a 1952 auto set,about 150 so far, about 90% of the living guys

    I am going to find a Coach Anderson autograph to go with my Siebert, then I am going to have them both framed.

    I am also starting a small one... but with the JSA submission, I am going to get Manning TTM and have it JSA authenticated

    Every pacer in a pacer uni, preferably on 8x10s, but cards if necessary (wayman tisdale for example). And I'm still plugging away on my topps set.
