Default Who do you collect?

When I saw Sean's thread "show as many cards as you can in ONE photo", I immediately wondered why Hal Chase? So, this may be a recycled idea for a thread, but do you have a centerpiece player of special interest?
Who do you collect and why?

Default Arky Vaughan

I collect all things Arky Vaughan. I am about two-thirds of the way through putting together a master set of his cards. I like Arky because I think he is terribly underrated, even with Bill James' praise in his most recent Historical Baseball Abstract. In my opinion (I agree with James), he's the second-best shortstop all-time and I don't see that changing any time soon (sorry Derek Jeter). Also, contemporary accounts indicate that he was a quiet, understated, and dignified player, but a fierce competitor.

Default John B Miller

I collect Dots Miller stuff because we are from the same hometown, I'm a huge Pirates fan and six of my relatives are also related to him. I'm hoping to have a large display piece made sometime soon based on the Dots/town theme. Still want to get a couple more things before I start it

I don't collect anyone in particular, but have though about Bill Terry. Really great player that no one seems to collect.
