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.

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.

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.

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

Nice!

I picked these up for $20 back in the summer from a local card shop who strictly deals in hockey. Do the exchange rate thing, and these were less than $15 American.

I lucked into this Grover years go on ebay. I think it was an auction if I remember right for like 10 bucks plus probably near 10 bucks shipping (I think it came from Canada). No one else bid!

He grabbed a box that a guy traded for some low value hockey cards and the owner said to me, I am not sure why I did this?

I went through them, grabbed the cards that were in decent shape or knew the players and asked him how much? He started at $40, we went back and forth until he came to $20.

My only regret, and although I would have paid more, is I didn't grab them all.

I went back 2-3 days later but they were gone. The remaining cards were mostly "team" cards, with a few other rough players thrown in.

This one qualifies. If I do decide to sell it sometime down the road, do you guys think that I should divulge that some restoration work has been done to the card?

Hey if a grading company can't spot the improvement it's all good.

Oh so close! The graded T206s I posted were $3 each. Of course that was ummmm........."some" time ago.

Keep going and I'll have to scan the 48 Bowman football I trash picked.

Don't worry about the restoration work that has been done. What you should be doing immediately is getting that card in a PSA slab! I heard it somewhere, not sure where, that cards sell for more in a PSA slab.
