Let's be clear... I don't own all of those cards. I don't own even one of those cards. :ROFLMAO: But I've been collecting pictures of Rickey cards over the years, and have quite an extensive digital library (over 48,000 images!), especially of cards I'll never be able to afford. Someday I'll post them all online in a Rickey catalog/website, but first I'm still working on my "master list" of Rickeys. It is currently at over 22,000 items at the moment, but still cleaning it up methodically. I combined lists from several different insane Rickey collectors like me, so I have to weed out the duplicates as best I can and am trying to standardize on nomenclature, format, etc. Its my hobby when I'm not scanning ebay for Rickeys or drooling at pictures of Kent's Man-Cave-of-Steal.

You are a legend! Love it. And brilliant idea to collect photos of cards we will probably never see again once in a collection. Can’t wait to peruse that in the future! Thanks for all you are doing. I’m in awe.

Rickey Collection Milestone Achieved!!

I am now owner of 1,000 Rickey items that are serial numbered 25 or less. It has taken a long time to get to this milestone. I consider 25 as a good threshold of true difficulty to get. I also just crossed the 500 threshold for items serial numbered 15 or less. I'm on the cusp of a few other fun milestones too, but this is one I had in sight since last year and have been spending/bleeding cash ever since. :ROFLMAO:

Which one of the Leaf Sports Heroes is that? And what is that last card... I don't recognize it? Those Mizuno ones from the prior post are awesome! Such a cool idea.

Thanks! It’s the 2017 Leaf Sports Heroes:

The other card is a custom 80 set I had done to mimic the colors of the 1982 set:

Glad you like the Mizuno custom! So fun.
