Collected baseball cards from 1986-1995, and again from 2014 to Present. A simple blog to discuss the hobby.
Sweet Toews! That wouldn't be a bad mini-collection to work on.
I figure it will give me a reason to look at more hockey than I have been. The Stanley Cup has always been cool to me.
Nice finish. I see you saved the best for last. Congratulations on being in the home stretch of that 56 set. It's my favorite set of all-time. Sadly... I won't be adding that one to my collection anytime soon... unless I win the lottery.
The commons are generally pretty reasonable in the single digits, I've been able to get really far without spending more than $60 on any individual card. Koufax and Mantle are going to break that record pretty hard when it comes down to it, but I'll cross that road when I come to it.
Love the action on the Barry Sanders and Randy Moss cards - I would think Sanders is often pictured running with the football as opposed to catching it.
Exactly the reason I picked them up - they were in a stack of football cards that all looked the same. Running backs running, quarterbacks about to throw, wide receivers standing on the line of scrimmage.... Snooze
I'm a Blackhawks fan and one of my "things I collect" is any Hawks card that has the Stanley Cup on it. Very nice pickup! -kinifeellikeacollectoragain.blogspot.com
The Stanley Cup is definitely my favorite championship trophy, especially the tradition of the players getting to keep it for a day - usually you don't see much interaction after the game in the other sports.
