RE: BASEBALL Player collectors: List your player(s) here...
Hi all! Brand new to Beckett. Bought the baseball OPG to start organizing and cataloging my collection. Sorting cards into junk wax team sets to start.

Player wise I focus on Ken Griffey Jr, Byron Buxton, Miguel Sano, Brusdar Graterol, signed 1995 Mariners (Griffey, Edgar Martinez, etc). Generally focus on baseball but also collect Vikings, Seahawks.

Starting to also focus on vintage cards, 1950s and 1960s for now. Trying to build up 1965 Topps, 1995 Bowman.

Welcome to Beckett! Looks like you are a 'comrade in arms' as a Twins and Vikings fan, as well as a Griffey Jr. collector in his Mariners uniform (my PC). Most likely we will trade at some point.

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.

Acuna, Soroka, Riley, Bellinger, Ohtani, Albies, Pache

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

Is the Bowman Draft the first Adley Rutchman cards (other than the USA stuff)?

RE: BASEBALL Player collectors: List your player(s) here...
Well, 2017 was my last year for the hobby. Having been in the hobby since 1975, I have seen quite a lot in the hobby over the years.

I mostly picked up grocery racks back in the 70's begging my mom to spend the $.49 for each rack at the A&P porndollz grocery store. The 1975 Boston Redsox sex vid got me hooked at age 9 by having such a diverse and fun team. With players Yaz and Luis Tiant being my 2 favorite players xtreamporn from the team. Didn't understand at the time how fun a team it was with Rice and Lynn's historic rookie seasons. Yeah, they lost the World Series, but that team got me in the hobby.

I bought my first "hobby" box back in 1979 at age 13 thanks to my paper route and continued buying and putting together Topps, Fleer, & Donruss sets up until 1989.

Then Upper Deck happened and made me rethink my collecting habits. Couldn't afford to keep building the 3 sets and xnxxvideo want the premium UD set too. So that was the first time I had to adjust. Dropped Donruss & Fleer pornktube so I could afford UD. Never bothered with Score.

Then, just 2 years later, 1992 happened. Thanks to Topps, I had to have the Topps Gold parallels. It was crazy that year and I went all out. Not only went after the Gold set, 1992 Fleer Ultra and Bowman came out. Two more "premium" sets I liked and then it was on.

Gave up on base sets and focused on insert sets I liked. Hey, hobby was getting real expensive with $12.00 packs of Finest in 1993. So for next 8 or so years, focused on inserts I liked lubetube and never touched base sets. One only has but so much money for the hobby.

Then in the early 2000's, the game used and autograph market really took off. So had to have game used and auto's, so had to change my focus again. So I chose to collect my 5 favorite players of xnxxhub all time (Yaz, Steve Carlton, Greg Maddux, Hakeem Olajuwon and Larry Bird). This way I could also pick up auto's and game used of other players I liked. Gave up on insert sets at that point.

Then, 2004 Diamond Kings happened. Frickin 1/1's became common and super low numbered parallels as well. So gave up on Yaz, Olajuwon and Carlton to become super collectors of Bird and Maddux.

Well, that lasted 2 years because the low serial numbered cards became so common place and with Maddux xxnxx and Bird, couldn't afford it. Had over 2300 unique Maddux cards in 2006, and stopped because I simply couldn't afford to buy all the Maddux & Bird I wanted. I'm a completest and it ticked me off I couldn't acquire every card of them.

So stopped being a super collector and went back to sets. Since 2006, have been putting together insert and parallel sets I liked. Would buy cases to get me started (like Heritage Chrome & Chrome Refractors) and buy what else I needed.

What finally became the last straw was over the last few years, how little value comes out of these cases anymore. Having opened up packs since 1975, I have always had the itch to open. Well, nothing like opening up a $100 box to pull 2 sticker auto's box after box worth $5 and $20. Base set, if you can make one, sells for $15 and the inserts maybe $15 if you are lucky to even sell them. With so few "collectors" out there, I am stuck with tons of base and inserts whose value drops even more when you have to "blow out' the lot just to move them. And even when you hit a big name auto, it barely pays for the box.

So while I have never been in the hobby to make money (still have my 1976 Topps set), I would like to see value in the boxes I open.

Yes, the hobby has evolved over the years and I have adjusted time and time again, but it's at a point where I am no longer having fun. Too many sets I want to collect, but can't afford. Too many Maddux xnxc cards I want, will never afford or even be able to purchase because there are only 1 or 2 in existence.

So I say goodbye to the hobby in 2018. Topps gonzo xxx has ruined the hobby in so many ways (too many products, redemptions, pricing etc.) that the fun that once was collecting back in 1975 has completely gone away, for me at least.

Goodbye Baseball, it's been a fun 42 years.

John
