    Graded cards? I hate graded cards so the only two I have are those silly 2001 Donruss Anniversary Originals that came from Donruss in slabs. One is a 7 and one is a 7.5 (!!!). With 700 million copies of 88 Donruss floating around they couldn't be bothered to slab nice examples. Otherwise if I have to buy a graded card to fill a hole in my collection, the first thing I do when I get it is bust it from its cage. I know some of you guys are cringing right now, but I gotta be me

    No TTM or show autos yet. If I ever go to a signing I'll bring my all-time favorite card - 1993 Donruss Elite.

    I do have a few on top cell packs just for fun, but only pick them up on the CHEAP.

    When the time comes? I expect exactly Jack and Schitt for my collection. There aren't many other Alomar collectors out there so I don't think my heirs will have much luck finding a buyer for my collection. So in my will I request my brother to put the whole damn thing up for consignment sale on ebay, and he can do what he wants with the proceeds.

    You didn't ask but I'll confess one more thing. I have started adding team cards - and their parallels - to my PC. Sad but true.

    Do you have side collections of "On Top" cellos/racks.
    What percentage of what you paid for your cards do you expect when the time comes?
    Do these players have museums where the cards can be donated when the time comes?
    These are very impressive collections but future disposition would be a HUGE concern for me.

    Cool stuff guys, I love reading the updates to this thread! I hope to have the Brandon Webb collection join one day, butcher's just not much out there anymore. I'm probably 275 short or so of 1,500.
    I collect all cards of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
    Especially interested in: Brandon Webb, Paul Goldschmidt, Daniel Hudson, Luis Gonzalez, Jay Bell, A.J. Pollock, Steve Finley, David Peralta, Zack Godley, Stephen Drew

    I've been waiting to be able to post in this thread, and just yesterday I finally made it to the 1500 unique Kirby Puckett cards milestone.

    These last pickups are the ones that put me at exactly 1501 (the Mirror Blue is actually a duplicate). I almost only chase earlier releases, so 95% of them are pre-2001.

    I have had some help from a few fellow collectors here, so thank you guys very much for that.

    On to the next milestone!

    Congrats on the milestone! I love this particular set and its parallels. Question is, do you peel or no? Just yesterday, I peeled all of the mirror golds that I've been collecting.

    The Blue was already peeled when I got it, but I have not peeled any of the others except the base and Artists Proof. I would have to practice a little on some more base cards to get the confidence to peel the Mirrors.

    They do look incredible without the film!

    Just found a plethora of Gwynns on Sportlots, which should put me over 6,000 finally. Seems like yesterday I was sitting at 3,141 and contemplating ending my collection at that magical number. I'll post my 6,000th when it arrives.

    *edit to add this timely post from April 2009 when I got my 3,500th Gwynn:

    I found one dealer that had 44 cards I needed (almost all pre-2000). He was selling at a great price, and a bonus to find that many from one guy! Nothing even scan worthy, a lot of old Topps stickers, Panini, many random base cards, pacific minor inserts, etc...

    (some I know I already have, but not with all of my Gwynn stuff. I figured for .35 per, it's easier to buy a new one than to hunt through hundreds of boxes!)

    Still a ways to go, but it's nice to find so many at once.
