Favorite Cards

So, there isn’t a whole lot going on the sports world right now.  The Super Bowl blog will be done later in the week.  Other than that, there isn’t a lot going on.  I figured I’d take the time to post some of my all-time favorite cards.  I am including pictures which will be direct links to eBay if you want to take a look at them.  Feel free to post comments with some of your favorite cards.

For me it all started with the 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. RC.  A beautiful card and one of the first centerpieces to my collection.

I absolutely loved the first year of SP Authentic FB with the Autograph Patches.  I have loved these cards ever since they came out, but the first year still holds a special place in my heart.  Sadly, there aren’t any on eBay right now, but I did find some completed ones.

I’ve always loved the Pull-Out Autograph Jersey Cards from Donruss/Panini.  They are not super easy to display, but they have huge, bold autographs and I have always liked them.

I’ve also always liked the Certified Mirror Gold Autographs with the four pieces of memorabilia and an autograph.  These cards often have some very cool patches and they are pretty rare as well.  The multi-piece cards have always been cool to me.

Nickname autographs have always been some of my favorite cards.  So many of them don’t sign their nicknames very often.  I’ve always wished that Jordan would sign “Air,” but I don’t think that is ever going to happen at this point.

Now, this next card is not one that many of us could ever own.  That doesn’t stop it from being one of my all-time favorite cards.  A beautiful design and a truly amazing card.  This card needs no introduction.

Jumbo Patches are always some of the better looking cards.  I have never been picky about which set they came from.  I just like the huge, multi-colored patches.

The next one is just one of my favorite cards.  It’s not a real valuable or rare card.  It’s just one that I liked because I liked the player and he doesn’t have a ton of Rookie year stuff.

This next card was one that I loved as a kid.  It was a super rare card as I remembered.  Now they aren’t worth nearly as much as they were when I had one.  Just a very cool looking insert.

This last one has special meaning to.  I made the checklist for this product while working at Upper Deck and I specifically made this card so I could try and buy one.  Sorry for the lousy picture, but I couldn’t find a good picture.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these.  As I said before, feel free to post your favorite cards as well.
