There's a lot of incredible things posted on this site....but that ...might be the most impressive thing I've seen/read yet! Wow...

Wow, that is high praise! Appreciate it.

Some new custom card flair has arrived! The 1/1 “Downtown” card turned out so amazing IMO. Just having so much fun collecting…

Those are great customs! I just reached out to the idrawbaseballcards creator about a Puckett. I don’t have social media accounts, this site and another forum are my only social media type accounts, lol. So, I don’t think I’d be able to reach out to the others...

SWEET SHARES! I hadn't ever seen the 04 Playoff Prime Cuts Gold Dodgers /10...pretty cool.

BTW, I'm working on a "master list" of Rickeys. I have been working to combine my list with lists from 3 other Rickey super-collectors. I'll share it when complete...but if you have a list, I'd love to combine it into the master.
TCDb - Trading Card Data Base - currently lists 10,364 Rickey Henderson cards

I'll throw this out there...cuz, why not.
I have 107 out of 140 possible variations of the 2005 Leaf Sportscasters of Rickey. (76%)
I have 44 out of 56 possible variations of the 2005 Donruss Studio Portraits of Rickey. (79%)
I have 28 out of 45 possible variations of the 2005 Donruss Throwback Threads Polo Grounds of Rickey. (62%)
I have 45 out of 88 possible variations of the 2004 Leaf Exhibits of Rickey. (51%)

Plus I have a few doubles of each. Is anyone interested in trading/selling to get me closer to completion on those? :)
Leffer - I have card #39 of the 04 Leaf Exhibits - #6/46. If you need it, I'd love to trade for one of your extra Rickey Polo grounds cards. I'm working on putting together the Polo Grounds set, at least 1 card of every player, and am at about 80/100. While I do have a Rickey #96 [#/40 - strike -short fly -out] I wouldn't mind another, and if you need the one I have, I'm not married to the one I have. Abide [Bob]

I am tired of cardboard, I’ve moved on to 100% handtooled leather cards instead:

That is utterly amazing. I don't even know where to begin describing my fascination. Kudos to the artist! BTW, what is that BEHIND the awesome leather piece? Is that some sort of uncut sheet?

It’s a super fun piece for sure! Never seen anything like it. As for the background, the artist has a book of Topps featuring every card from 51-80’s he said!

Super excited for this little Rickey Henderson Field pin to arrive in original packaging! A stadium exclusive during 2017 after they dedicated the field in his name…

That is a cool pin. There are a few out there on ebay right now getting some big $$ bids.

As a celebratory side note, I have crossed a few milestones in my Rickey collection recently that I'd like to share:

6,000+ different Rickey items
10,000+ total Rickey items

That is a lot of "stuff" in a closet. (I wish I had Ken's space, time, energy, decorating skills, and understanding family :ROFLMAO: to be able to display the stuff and share via social media)

And, at the 10,000 item marker, I have:
1200+ relic cards (of which almost 200 are prime)
almost 2500 serial numbered cards & an additional 210 items with known print runs (but not serial numbered)
140+ autographed items
I only have 13 Topps rookies, but do have the 77 Chong Modesto (and 79 Ogden)
I also just picked up my 17th serial numbered 1-of-1
And lastly, as an interesting stat....I currently have 939 Rickey Items that are serial numbered 30 or less. ;)

Goodness Scott! That’s just beyond amazing and incredible milestones. Love the 939, go ahead and retire that niche immediately. Ha! Congrats again, just wow….

So I had a good mail day when I opened up the 2021 Gold Framed Definitive #’d 01/30, but then I opened this amazing Rickey Henderson Field limited edition LIDS exclusive A’s hat and it elevated the mail day to legendary! Believe it or not, this is the first A’s fitted hat I have ever owned and now it will be a display piece!

Just in time, because if the A's move, it seems to me, they will sell the Field Naming Rights to a bank or insurance company, and there will no longer be a Rickey Henderson Field

Sadly, but a statue will be in its place is the rumor.
