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.
500 Home Run Club Bat Cards

Frank Thomas - HAVE
Gary Sheffield - HAVE

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!
