The WANT List (Players, Who & What I collect)

Outside of completing my sets, this is "who" I collect - favorite players, record-holder groups, teams or just pieces of cardboard that I feel like I need!

The Player Collections

- Anthony Rizzo
- Don Mattingly
- David Robertson
- Craig Kimbrel
- Freddie Freeman
- Eric Jagielo

I'll accept or probably be willing to trade for just about any cards of these players - base, insert, parallel, relic, serial numbered, 1/1's, auto's......or whatever they come up with next.   I have a lot of Mattingly cards from my childhood collecting period ('84-'92) but I know there are plenty of gaps to fill in!   I missed out on his last few playing years AND almost all of his post-playing days releases.    I don't have a lot of Robertsons and that needs to change!   Same thing for my two favorite Bravos: Fab Freddie & Kimbrel - I only have a few and there's room to grow.

Welcome, Anthony Rizzo!   At the time of this update, I have only two Rizzo cards - '12 Allen & Ginter (base) and a 2013 Gypsy Queen mini.   Wide open.

Top Cards

I'm fine-tuning this list.  

These are cards that I really want in my collection, for various reasons.   Some of the vintage might be a bit of a $tretch but you need to have dreams.   Others might be iconic or rookie cards of players I admire, like Dale Murphy's 1977 Topps rookie card OR it might be a card I had always drooled over as a kid (hey there, Jose!).   Lots of times, obtaining one of these cards (like the Murph) will translate into a set-building opportunity.   Just ask Mr. 1978 Eddie Murray!
