What are you thankful for…

I hope everyone is able to get together with family for a nice safe and fun holiday.

As we eat our turkey and get ready to watch the Packers and Lions lets take a minute to give thanks to the hobby we love. Here is my list of what I am thankful for…

1952 Topps design
Whether an original, or one of the many re-dos
the design always look good and fresh. I am not sure there is a better looking retro platform for on-card autos.

1975 Topps
From the classic ’70s look to the great rookie class (four HOFers) this set rulled the entire decade and is still a top 10 set all time. I am also thankful that after over 20 years I have finally added a ’75 Brett and Yount to my collection.

1984 Donruss
This may be my favorite set all time.
The design was a quantum leap and the Mattingly rookie is a beast, still my favorite card in my collection.

1984 Eric Dickerson rookie
A great card of a great player with an awesome photo. As a kid that wore glasses Eric was somewhat of a hero.

Young guns
The greatest non-auto/relic rookie set.

The fact EEE is about to drop
I love Elite Extra Edition. It gets right to the the core of my prospector tendencies.

Wood grain card designs
Old and new it always looks good.

Finally adding a John Stockton auto to my collection
On-card to boot.

Kent Hrbek
Still my favorite player.

Picking up old school giants off ebay on the cheap.
There was a time those two cards would have cost me about $120 for both, I bought them on ebay for less than $5.

Busting wax
New stuff or old, it’s still the best thing about card collecting.


I am thankful for next year.
As a Minnesota sports fan that’s about all we have to keep us going.

Happy Thanksgiving ya’ll

  1. The Mattingly is in my top 3. Amazing card. Nice Hrbek card as well. Still wanting to go to his bar/restaurant at Target Field…
