RE: BASEBALL Player collectors: List your player(s) here...
The two players I am going to focus on for player collections are Alan Trammell and Reno Bertoia. Trammell everyone knows, but Bertoia was a player for the Tigers and Twins in the 50s early 60s. He was from my hometown of Windsor Ontario and became a HS teacher after retiring, and some of my friends had him as a teacher. I often caddied for him when I was a kid at the Golf Club he was a member of.

RE: BASEBALL Player collectors: List your player(s) here...
I collect Roger Clemens and have an extensive collection of 438 cards starting in the 80's, 4 1999 & 2000 World Series signed balls, 4 CY6 signed balls, 1 300ws/4000k's signed ball, 1 signed bat, numerous (20 or more) signed 8x10 photos.
In 1995 Roger's secretary called me out of the Yellow Pages (Computers & Networks) and he has been a client ever since. Every year (when he was playing) Roger would lay a box full of Cards, Balls and other signed memorabilia on me at season end. I gave some of it away to special clients and I stockpiled the rest (in dark storage).
I have been reading (here & elsewhere) about the nuances of collecting these items only to learn that even though I have a great start on collecting, I am an absolute novice.
I put together a spreadsheet of all the cards, sorted by decade 80's 90's Y2k's.

Is there a better sort criteria, all the types & categories of cards is mind blowing. Is the organize feature of this site a good place work with?

Attachments don't work on the forums; I don't know why they even have it as an option. To post pics, you have to upload to a photosharing site like Photobucket. Then post the IMG Code.

Welcome to the boards!!

Orris...my opinion is a def. yes. Organize here is helpful for 2 reasons....(1) lets you mark what you have...including multipls. I work with spreadheets everyday and just find that it's alot easier to pay someone else to track what is new plus you can get book value on your items and (2) by marking your wants....folks here know what you need when working up a trade with you. At +12,500 items in the beckett database under Roger Clemens, I think it would be very helpful, but that's me. (you can add everthing then remove what you are not interested in...say printing plates). Good luck....

I'm not going to update the main entry (immediately below) any longer... so just keep posting your players' names here.

Why no more updates? The linkage on those "old site" names doesn't work now. However, I'm sure many of the account names are still good.

So just keep posting your players at the end of the thread so other player-collectors can find you.

----

Later this year, we will have another Super Collectors issue of <i>Beckett Baseball </i> where we profile collectors whose dedication to a single player goes above and beyond.
We want to find the most outrageous collections -- perhaps one or two per player who we can compare.
One of our first steps, though, is one that has benefits to users here.
We're going to start a fresh BASEBALL-ONLY player collector list. While only the most outrageous collections will make it into the magazine later this year, everyone can let other collectors know who they are looking for.
Post who you collect -- and perhaps some quick stats on what you have. As comments are left, we'll compile the list here.
Example: I actively collect <b>Nick Swisher</b>, anything related to the <b><i>Major League</i></b> movies and, to a lesser degree these days, <b>Jose Canseco</b>. (But that's just for baseball.)
For example, for Canseco I own 167 copies of his 1986 Donruss Rated Rookie -- along with one counterfeit version. My favorite card might be his 1983 Fritsch (first minor league card), which I only own 17 copies of. (Always need more! Ha.)
For Swisher, I own 22 1/1s, 88 certified autograph cards (some mem, some not) and all kinds of other stuff including about a dozen other signed items including a game-used batting helmet, two game-used jerseys and eight game-used bats. I'll spare you any more card/memorabilia stats for now -- perhaps I'll include them in the issue when it arrives later this year.
Right now, though, let us know who you collect and what you've got... we'll update the list up top here on occasion
