NOTE: Cards are not marked FT yet because they are only available under certain circumstances.

The ones that are marked are available in any trade for other autos.


As many of you know I am working on a lifetime on card auto project. The project consists of many players I have seen play in my life, and most of which have at some point been All-Stars or KC Royals past and present.

The project has now crossed the 1000 mark and my goal by the end of 2012 is to reach 1050. I am actually pushing hard for this to have the holiday months off.

I am willing to trade down on anything in the project if I get the same player back and add something. The project is not about value for me but more about acquiring the player.

Here are the requirements to make it as a project card.
* On card auto, Sweet Spot, SP or Finest Letter, True Cut auto for older players
* No stickers unless the player has nothing else available
* White index cuts okay on some of the high-dollar guys as long as auto is all visible
* IP or TTM autos only of those with no "pack pulled" copies available
* IP or TTM must come from reputable source for later authentication
* Avoiding brands like Best, Just, etc unless noted or a big name player

Again this is a LIFE TIME project.

Here is my progress so far.

Here is the list of players yet to acquire. There is names being added daily. Some I have researched and those have notes. Others have notes if there are stipulations for them to make the project.

I think that`s an awesome idea. I also reason the same way when I`m looking for autos. I collect Bucs, but I just love cards and the hobby and remember certian players and sets from when I was young and along the way and collect much the way you are now. I do also have a couple of those autos you are looking for. One that comes to mind quickly is Matt Capps. I`m sure I have some more.
Help me!!!
wish I had something to help you with... Funny, I don't see a bag of sea monkeys in this life list. ;-)

Yeah you'd think I'd have added that.
Daily bump!
Anyone interested in swapping anything out I have?
Hola! Good day!
I have the Ramon Hernandez in this scan. Have any Braves?
