UPDATE: ’30-YOC Top Ten Lists’ – Top Ten Most Wanted Baseball Cards For The 30-YOC Collection
With my recent acquisition of the 1968 Topps ‘Bird Belters’ card that features Frank and Brooks Robinson, I thought it would be a good time for me to review how I have progressed on my quest to score the ‘Top Ten Most Wanted Baseball Cards’.
This was originally posted on ’30-YOC’ on 11/12/2012. I thought it would be fun to look back and see how I have progressed with going after these cards now that we are six months removed from the original launch date.
I will keep the original post in tact and simply add a comment about the status of each in RED.
Enjoy. And thanks for reading!!!
10 – 1984 Topps Don Mattingly rookie card – Got it!!!
9 – 1990 Topps Glossy TV Andre Dawson – Not yet…
8 – 1989 Fleer Billy Ripken ‘F&CK FACE’ card – Got it!!!
7 – 1960 Topps George ‘Sparky’ Anderson – Got It!!
6 – 2001 Topps Fergie Jenkins Certified Autograph Issue – 1966 Design – Got It!!!
5 – 1992 Bowman Mariano Rivera rookie card – Not even close…
4 – 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card – Not yet…
3 – 1991 Donruss Elite Andre Dawson, serial numbered to 10,000 – Yessir!!!
2 – 2008 Upper Deck Heroes Ernie Banks Purple, serial numbered to 25. I have never seen this card, hence the image of Banks’ base card from the set – Still never seen one…
1 – 1968 Topps ‘Bird Bashers’ with Frank Robinson & Brooks Robinson – YES!!! 🙂
As you can see, I have done fairly well in bringing home some of the cards that I have tagged as ’30-YOC’s Most Wanted’.
Hopefully in time I can grab a few more, though some may be pretty pricey.
And who knows, a new list may be in order too…
Have a great night everyone. And ‘Thanks For Reading’.
