Your Dream Card

Your Dream Card
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?

- Mickey

Collect Kirk Gibson (Tigers), Lou Whitaker, Alan Trammell, Jack Morris (Tigers), Lance Parrish (Tigers), Sparky Anderson (Tigers), Tom Brookens (Tigers), as well as earlier Tigers greats like Al Kaline, Norm Cash, Mickey Lolich, Willie Horton,etc.

RE: Your Dream Card
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.

Collect Kirk Gibson (Tigers), Lou Whitaker, Alan Trammell, Jack Morris (Tigers), Lance Parrish (Tigers), Sparky Anderson (Tigers), Tom Brookens (Tigers), as well as earlier Tigers greats like Al Kaline, Norm Cash, Mickey Lolich, Willie Horton,etc.

RE: Your Dream Card
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.

RE: Your Dream Card
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

RE: Your Dream Card
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.
