Default $20 Collector Club open for membership

I'm accused of being a charter member in the $20 Collector club. Please join me so that one day we will have the respect of collectors who buy big-boy cards for thousands of dollars and think they are of higher character/integrity than us.

Price of membership is to identify the best valued card for $20:

1971 topps PSA 6 Steve Garvey

I am definitely in the $20 club.

For me the best $20 card is a raw mint 1989 Fleer Bill Ripken F Face error. Has to be the most well known card in the hobby plus it says F*CK FACE on it.
T210 Series 3 Ft Worth, looking for low end examples and especially ones with a Y shaped hole punch. I also have some extra T210's for trade.

Count me in as your typical "$20 collector". I enjoy the hobby on the low end and am perfectly happy with my collection.

I very rarely spend over $200 on a single card.

Here is a recent $20 pickup of mine.

Count me in! I'm still trying to decide what to spend the $140 on that I stashed away for the centerpiece of my collection. As it is, none of my cards break three digits.

Here's a recent pickup. Chuck Klein, $12.

I'm at work and am unable to post pictures of either card, but I wanted to stamp my membership ASAP, as this is my kind of club!

My qualifying entries that I couldn't decide between...

1960 Fleer Ted Williams PSA 3

1947 Bond Bread Bobby Doerr RAW

I didn't choose the $20 Collector life... The $20 Collector life chose me.
Faith. Family. Country. Baseball. Baseball Cards.

I have an $18 bid pending right now at Mile High. I would tell you what it is but I can't out my winning auction. Cool card.

My $20 bargain bin is the hardest thing to keep stocked. It has contained 60's Mantles, Walter Payton and Joe Montana rookies and dozens of tobacco cards. Maybe I need to start a $20 dealer club! You guys are the bread and butter of the hobby, not the $20,000 guys.
Great experience buying from edjs and mybuddyinc. Check out my ebay store, weird, eclectic, accurate, and reasonable! Also check out

Can I count stuff bought years ago?

Counting the grading fees I think I'm right at $20 for the pair.

Maybe a little bonus or two?

The Lombardi was probably under a dollar. certainly no more then $2
