No. I began collecting just Nolan Ryans in the Summer of 1990 and I still collect only Nolan Ryans to this day.

RE: Have you ever...
I recently decided to put together some sets because what i collected was all mixed and was a disaster so i decided to separate what i had into sets and have been very surprised I have some almost complete sets just from buying rack packs and blasters!

RE: Have you ever...
I get surprised all the time when I go through boxes of cards I have that I haven't opened in a year or so. One of my favorite surprises like that happened a few years ago when I was sorting through some boxes of mid to late 90s commons and found a 1997 Fleer David Ortiz rookie.

That is exactly the process that I am going through right now. I just finally got everything organized into sets and was quite surprised with some of the cards I found.

RE: Have you ever...
I was going through a box of old basketball cards and found a Larry Sanders (Bucks) auto rookie card numbered to 99. When I originally got it, I was like, who the heck is his? BV of $100

Also went through an old box and found some Topps packs in it from 2006 that had never been opened. Told my son we would open 2-3 packs a night. Second night of opening packs we pulled a 2003 Topps Team Topps Legends Willie Mays auto card. Why it was in a 2006 pack I have no idea. You can see it here:

It is my son and mine's website to display our cool stuff. Scroll down to 2006 for the Mays card.

Now we make it a habit to go through old stuff at least once a year looking for players who have emerged.

Finding Mike Trout rookie cards is never a bad thing. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Have you ever...
I kept only a few of my cards when i decided i was bored with it in 2001. So, there is no surprise to be had.
