Zeprock Collection
I have been considering starting my own thread and posting cards from my collection for a few years and since 2020 is the 50th anniversary of my collecting, this seems like as good a time as any. I started collecting baseball cards in 1970 and my first card was a Kellogg's 3D Willie McCovey that innocently fell into my cereal bowl and changed my life. I've never stopped collecting and never taken a break and over the past 50 years I have amassed a collection in the neighborhood of 350,000 cards. Each binder is a different player and each box is a different year. The fireproof safe houses my most valuable cards. The photo on the right shows boxes of mostly duplicates that I have for trade.



I will be posting randomly in groups of nine cards because that just seems like a good "baseball number". 9 batters per game, 9 fielders per game, 9 innings per game, 9 pockets in a normal 9-pocket card sheet. Smile

I will start with my nine oldest cards and work my way up through the years scattering in some of my favorite cards of the many players I collect and other oddities.

Here we go!


1911 T205 Gold Border #89 Buck Herzog (Got this from my best friend back around 1987. He knew that I collected and mentioned it to a coworker of his who also collected and his coworker gave it to him to give to me. It's my oldest card.)
1921-24 Exhibits #172 Arnold Statz
1939-46 Exhibits Salutation #31A Charles Keller LL/Best Wishes
(I have a couple dozen of these and almost all of them are Hall of Famers but these are my two oldest Exhibits.)


1940 Play Ball #26 Wally Moses
1940 Play Ball #88 Mel Ott
(my oldest HOF card)
1940 Play Ball #114 Lon Warneke (I picked these up at a local card shop back around 1980-82 when they sold vintage Mantle cards for under $20 and the Ryan rookie booked at $12 in NrMt.)


1949 Bowman #39 Billy Goodman RC
1950 Bowman #43 Bobby Doerr
1950 Bowman #202 Cliff Chambers RC
(Looks like they depicted him at a Christmas tree farm.)

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

RE: Zeprock Collection
I have been waiting for you to do this forever, I'll be anxiously waiting on these photos! And waiting on a time machine to take me back to dropping $20 on some Vintage Mantles.

Love that Mel Ott card!

Not interested in GU or AUTO - base, base, base!!!
