Posted By: <b>Anson</b><p>We've done something similar in the past. However, I thought it would be fun to see what and who everyone collects or wants to collect. If anything, it might be helpful for trading or finding stuff folks need for sets. <br /><br />E101s - working on the set<br />E.Collins<br />Heilmann<br />Lajoie<br />Feller<br /><br /><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>jay behrens</b><p>still plugging away on the player set. For those that don't know what I am talking about, I am trying to get one card of every major leaguer that appeared on a card fro 1908-45. I originally included minor league cards, but becuase of monitoary contraints, I have eliminated them, so the player as to appear on the card as a major leaguer. This helped eliminate t209s, t210s, Tarzan Bread and other rare or tough cards.<br /><br />Within the player set I am working on the Delong set. I prefer Colgans over other cards of players and am also working on type cards of various sets and have already knocked out some tough sets.<br /><br />Jay<br><br>Last year there was a fistfight between fans and players at a professional basketball game. Not to be outdone, the National Hockey League has announced that not only will several fans be beaten every period, but one lucky fan each game will be run over by the Zamboni.

Posted By: <b>Paul Stratton</b><p>I started collecting cards of every player that had a chapter in Ritter's book "The Glory of Their Times", my favorite baseball book. Once that was complete I am now trying to collect one of every player or person in the index. It's gotten pretty tough. There are a lot of people listed, some don't have cards. It allows me to get away from focusing solely on pre-war cards. Maybe someone else is doing this, if you are I would be interested in your progress.<br /><br />Paul

Posted By: <b>Al Crisafulli</b><p>Cool thread. I'm sure it's been done here many times before, but it helps those of us that are new to the forum.<br /><br />My primary goals right now are to collect one card from every member of the Hall of Fame, and to collect one complete set from every year the Yankees won the World Series.<br /><br />For the Yankee run, here's what I've been working on lately:<br /><br />1938 Goudey - set complete in PSA holders, now I'm in upgrade mode<br />1934-36 Diamond Stars (I'm cheating and using this set for 1936) - set about 30% done in SGC holders<br /><br />This weekend, I started three more:<br /><br />1939 Goudey R303s (A, B, and C)<br />1961 Fleer baseball <br />T205 - not from a Yankee year, but I can't resist these cards anymore.<br /><br />-Al<br />

Posted By: <b>Rob (NYC)</b><p>I first satisfied my nostalgic side - basically Reggie Jackson in the 1977 World Series and Nolan Ryan. I have a couple post-1980's modern issues of Roger Clemens and Michael Jordan, but those are exceptions. And a few "shiny pennies" of Johan Santana. Okay, they may not be pre-war vintage, but I do/did enjoy watching them play. At least I am done with this phase of my collection.<br /><br />I am currently working on a 1909-11 T-206 Cardinals team set in affordable grading (VG to EX, w/o the O'Hara - I can't afford it in any condition). I also collect pre-war horse racing tobacco issues. Someday I hope to advance to N172s and N175s.

Posted By: <b>Michael Campbell</b><p>I pretty much stick to Jimmie Foxx items. Anything to do with him. As far as I can determine, I am only missing one publication where he appeared on the cover. But we all know how that goes.....another will pop up somewhere. I have only four more cards to go and I will have what I believe to be the vast majority of them. Graded appropriately to suit the rareness. Another words, a PSA grade 8 Diamond Star, but yet a grade 4 Buttercream is acceptable.etc. etc. I am missing only one pin. I believe. I have about 50 original photos and wire photos. That search will never end. I have four of his autographs, including a letter he wrote to a fan. I also like Buck Weaver and Hack Wilson. Some Mantle. Some Gehrig. I own his personal health club pass, that came out of the Gehrig family auction of 2000. So...the beat goes on. I have the collection malady. Glad there is no cure.<br />

Posted By: <b>identify7</b><p>Gentelmen: very interesting collections.<br /><br />I am afraid that i collect less serious, and less interesting stuff. My collection consists of trivia. As such, I seek players who have accomplished comparitively little, but through unique performance or circumstance, at one point in time achieved relative greatness.<br /><br />For example, other than Mathewson, in the twentieth century, there are two pitchers who finished a season with more wins than walks given up. Slim Sallee and Bret Saberhagen.<br /><br />These two individuals are in my Gil of Fame. I organize this collection by year. So for some years there are multiple players who have different levels of achievements.

Posted By: <b>Cat</b><p>What I say I collect and what I collect are two different things. My standard answer is: I collect rookies or the most siginificant card of all players voted in to the BB HOF by the baseball writers. This being said I have four Joe Jackson cards, Pete Rose's rookie, Roger Maris' rookie, and a whole host of players that were actually elected into the HOF by the veterans committee, including: Cap Anson, Monte Ward, Tim Keefe, and Charles Comiskey. I wanted an Allen & Ginter card and an Old Judge card, hence the players elected via the veterans committee. So in the end I have mostly rookie cards and significant cards of players elected to the HOF by the baseball writers, but stretch this definition so that I have different variations of cards as well as players that perhaps "should be" in the HOF as well as a few players that were important to me in my childhood following of the game (I have been asked before: What the heck is a Dave Kingman rookie card doing in your collection?).<br /><br />What I collect makes sense to me, but probably no one else.

Posted By: <b>Chad</b><p>In any set from any country, especially the guys without American issued cards. But I don't have the will power to resist other stuff so I pick up T cards now and then, the V100 set, and lately I've been picking up strip cards when I think I found a good deal. I tend to work on more affordable sets as i just don't have the patience to save up for high end cards. That and the "common" guys in a lot of sets are interesting to me. I was pretty excited to win V100's of Jesse Barnes and George Cutshaw, for example. Yep, I'm that big a geek about this.<br /><br />--Chad

Posted By: <b>Chris Mc</b><p>I have a limited budget so I'm down to only collecting 1930 Rogers Peet cards. Before my budget got pinched I really enjoyed collecting Obaks and 1920's "w" cards

Posted By: <b>Scott Thompson</b><p>I collect low grade T206's and am stuck at 452 at the present time. I will probably "hold" for a couple of years until I go back to work and then start on the rest of the "obtainable" cards. Barring a winning lottery ticket, I'll never have a Wagner (or a Plank, or any of the other big cards).<br /><br />I freely admit my collection is inferior to nearly every other collection on this board. I have no shame of my collection and have no jealousy towards those with superior ones. (OK...maybe Iím a little jealous, but not in a bad way!)<br /><br><br>Scott <br />
