Obscure player collections?

I have a few...

Todd Greene Todd had respectable ML careers. I like collecting Todd because he was playing at the height of '90s inserts and was a MiLB Player of the Year, so he had enough hype to be included in some cool sets.

Jose Cruz Jr. Cruz has some great '90s stuff.
I have a "COMC collection" of these guys. Several years back when you could snag some great deals, often for pocket change, I started to pick up rare, unusual or just striking inserts/parallels of their RCs and prospect era cards. My criteria was usually "no way I could've afforded this/I would've loved to pull this" in 1995, 1996, 1997, etc." I also watched Todd at a few subway series games and had high hopes for him.

Ah, Jeff Reed! The Colorado Rockies' own Jeff Reed! I had forgotten about him, but I do remember the old dayz when he was our catcher. Seemed like a cool guy. I had no idea he played 17 seasons in the majors until I looked up his stats just now. Only totaled 4.4 WAR, but hey, I have a soft spot in my heart for journeymen.

What a great thread! Not really obscure, more of a star that fizzled a bit, I collect Ron Gant. A few other "minor stars" Darrell Porter, J.R. Richard, Greg Luzinski. I collected Todd Hundley (another star that fizzled) but gave that up years ago.

I remember! How's the collection going?
