Your Dream Card - mseward - 07-13-2011 07:55 PM

I'm sure this topic has been posted here before, but I'm pretty new to this board (as I'm sure are some others), so I thought I'd ask what your dream card(s) is (are). And, of course, if you'd like to share why, please do so. I enjoy stories about card collecting almost as much as collecting itself!

I think my dream card would be a 1954 Topps Al Kaline rookie. I have a reprint, because I'm sure I'll never be able to afford the real thing. I've been a Tigers fan my entire life (I'm 38 years old), and he's Mr. Tiger. I have a modest Al Kaline collection, and trying to grow it one (inexpensive) card at a time.

After that, I think it would be really neat to own a Ty Cobb or Hank Greenberg card from their playing days.

So...what's yours?

I forgot to include another card I've been wanting forever, but just can't afford yet: the 1964 Topps A.L. Bombers card featuring Al Kaline, Norm Cash, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris.

Stuck between two choices, either a 1914 Cracker Jack Smokey Joe Wood or an E90-1 American Caramel Joe Jackson. I don't really know why.

Everyone knows my answer to this question because I am working on the set. I just picked up 2 more yesterday and I will post scans in my monthly PC thread. Now I only need 98 more to finish the set except for the big 8 which are really not included in the set

My dream card is a 1933 DeLong #7 Lou Gehrig. I love to get my hands on a vintage Lou Gehrig and this one is my favorite.
