Officially Adding Four More ‘Legend PLayer Collections’ To My PC Roster!! You’re Gonna Love This!!!
In case you missed it, this week will be full of collecting announcements at ’30-YOC’. The other night announced the two current players I will be collecting – Giancarlo Stanton and Bryce Harper.
Well, tonight is another announcement. This one takes us back a few decades and to some of the biggest stars of the game and guys that have impacted my love for the sport.
There are four players that I will be actively collecting. I’ll try to go after some of their vintage cards as funds allow, but my goal will be to build collections of their modern issues as I pay tribute to their careers.
All of them are baseball royalty.
All of them are World Series champions.
All of them are MVP’s.
And all of them are no-doubt-about-it Hall of Famers!!!
Let’s do this!!!
Frank Robinson – One of the greatest offensive careers in the sport’s history. I have been a fan of his for a very long time, and I look forward to putting more emphasis on obtaining cards that honor his great career.
Hank Aaron – Is it possible that Hank Aaron is underrated? In my eyes, he is!! And I will do my best to make sure that I do what I can to learn about and share his legendary career as much as I can. Picking up new cards of Aaron is going to be a blast!
Reggie Jackson – One of the greatest personalities in the sport, I have been collecting cards of Reggie Jackson for the last few years, now I am making it ‘Official’. Reggie is featured in almost all new releases that include legends – it will be nice to start organizing and compiling an even bigger collection to honor Mr. October.
Roberto Clemente – Simply stated, I do not feel that Roberto Clemente gets the attention he is due; both baseball and baseball card wise. So, as I work to learn more about him myself, I will share by collecting his cards and featuring them on the blog. I really look forward to presenting new cards of Clemente to the great readers of this blog.
And there you have it. I hope that you’re liking my list!!
I’ve got a bit of organization to complete of the cards that I already own of these players. From there, I’ll build checklists so I know exactly what I have so I can focus on only going after cards I do not have.
And then the fun will begin – showing off the new stuff I go after!!!
Stay tuned to ’30-YOC’ – there is going to be a lot of future posts that celebrate the grand careers of Frank Robinson, Hank Aaron, Reggie Jackson, and Roberto Clemente.
Thanks for reading. Have a great night!
