CONTEST: Share Your Opinion & WIN BIG
I held a similar contest to this a while back and it was successful & useful, so I'm gonna do it again...

Below you'll find a list of 115 players that I have autos of in my Current Stars PC. The collection needs to be capped at 100 players, so I want you to tell me:

a)Which would be your bottom 15 players on the list (ie: the ones who don't belong in the Current Stars PC)?

AND

b)Which 5 players is the collection missing (Trout, Rivera and Ichiro are given and should not be in your answer)?

Just post your answers in the thread, and on the weekend I'll use random.org to select a post number, and the winner will receive a package of cards including autos & game used tailored to the collecting preferences of the winner and valued at at least $50 BV.

Please base your choices on a combination of past and current performance (so a bad 2012 doesn't necessarily remove them from the list) as well as future potential.

Lemme know if you have questions, but hopefully the instructions are clear. Thanks in advance for your input! Cheers.

RE: CONTEST: Share Your Opinion & WIN BIG
That's a pretty comprehensive and impressive list Mr. Rabbit but if I were going to have to drop 15 from it, I guess I'd drop these (in no particular order):

Jarrod Parker
Melky Cabrera
Nick Markakis
Shin Soo Choo
Jordan Zimmermann
Jason Motte
Mike Morse
Ben Revere
Dustin Ackley
Alex Avila
Lance Lynn
Jon Jay
Yovani Gallardo
Mike Moustakas
Salvador Perez

If I were to add five, I think I'd try to add these (in no particular order):

Will Middlebrooks
Marco Scutaro
Todd Helton
Wade Miley
Brett Lawrie

Actually I can't believe you don't already have Helton on your list and by the way, you have Josh Johnson listed twice.

I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.
