I DID IT!!!! 1995 Atlanta Braves Auto Collection complete (PICS) - clintorris - 09-18-2012 07:33 PM

After several years of searching, sending TTM's, meeting players in person and buying I have completed my #1 collection goal of getting an auto of each member of the 1995 Braves world championship team. Here's some pics, sorry for the quality but it's the best I can do. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask. Now I'm not sure what to do next. Let me know what you think and Thanks for looking.

Amazing and a relief. Definitely didn't expect so much time and effort into trying to get these but once I start something I have to finish or try my best too. Now I just need my man cave so that I can hang this stuff up and display it proudly. Mentioned that to my wife and she just laughed. Sad

That's so cool!! Gives me hope on finishing my 2004 and 2007 Sox teams. How long did it take? Or do I want to know?

Hopefully 2012 roster will be next. And that collection is awesome. I only have about a 1/4 of what you have. Very jealous.

It was a little over 5 years. I got my first auto in 2007 from Chipper at a Pirates game and after that the fun began.
