“STATE OF THE DAWSON”
As we end 2011 and head into 2012, I though that this would be a good time to provide a quick update as to the status of my Andre Dawson baseball card collection.
2011 was a fantastic year of growth for my Andre Dawson collection. The attention given to him by Topps after his 2010 Hall of Fame induction equated to him being in many of the year’s releases. I easily added over 100 new cards of Dawson to my collection this year, brining my grand total to 936 Unique Andre Dawson baseball cards!!!
Along with all of the modern-era stuff that I grabbed, I also went old-school nabbing a decent sized handful of cards issued during Andre’s playing days that had eluded me prior.
Here is a recap of how my collection stacks up today:
– 501 cards issued during Andre’s playing days
– 235 modern-era cards issued after Andre’s retirement
– 71 Autographs (IP & TTM, includes cards from my Inscription Set)
– 98 Game-Used relic cards
– 31 Certified Autographs
Pretty sweet stuff right there!!!
I have already had a peek of some of the 2012 checklists and it looks like Andre will once again be present in many of Topps’ releases – I CANNOT WAIT!!!
