    Starting a Player Collection - Jeremy Hellickson

    Well it just dawned on me. I've never been a player collector. I've collected different sets, and always set aside any Twins cards that I have gotten, but I've never been a TRUE collector of any one player.......................until now!!!!!!!

    Jeremy Hellickson grew up in my hometown of Des Moines, Iowa, well I'm in Waukee now, but can throw a rock and hit Des Moines. He graduated from Hoover high school, where I have worked with the athletic department from time to time. I had never met Jeremy being that we are 8 years apart in age and I have never worked with the baseball team, until this past year's Twinsfest. The Bob Feller Museum had him signing at their booth. He was as nice as they come and very polite and signed several balls for me.

    I was at work a few hours ago, when my curiousity made me look on Beckett.com to see how many cards Jeremy has. As of this date, he only has 124 different official cards, including all of the 1/1's, printing plates and such.

    So that is how a player collector is born. As of right now, I do not own any Jeremy Hellickson cards. I have one autographed baseball left and that is it. So it starts today. 0/124. I have a ton of cards to trade, around 150,000 or so, so let me know what you have and what you are wanting for them. I will also have around $300 in PayPal at the end of this week, but would rather start off trading and am definitely looking for the more limited cards to get me started.

    Let me know what you think and what you have!!!!!!!

    If only you'd posted this a few months ago. I had all of these, but have since sold it all.

    I have an xfractor and a orange ref #/25. I haven't checked the bay lately but I remember percymiller listing the xfractor for 89.99. Haven't checked to see what orange refs are selling for.

    Sorry I don't. Plus, I believe he recently re-sold it.

    Hello Dave - we had a successful trade or two on Beckett, but I don't use that site anymore since I'm starting on here. Please let me know when you come up with prices on those as I would be interested in both and also if you are looking for anything in trade! Thanks.

    well we learned on sunday that his fan club eats at the buffalo wild wings right there by the show. other things we learned they damn near fill the place up, that buffalo wild wings in des moines has better looking waitstaff than those around omaha, and that the waitress we had would love to go to omaha. what we did not learn is why... i think its because of these *pointing at eyes* the ocean blues. go ahead dive in but its deep and it will swallow you.
