Every Collector Has One

Yes, every single collector out there has a favorite card...or the ULTIMATE card.  For me, it is the 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card.  It's not the best card out there.  Hell, it's not even close. But, Griffey was my favorite player during that time period and I searched and searched and tried to find a little foil pack with THAT card in it.  I failed.  I still don't have that card, even though I could easily afford it now that I have gainful employment.  I'm sure I will own one soon.  It's just a matter of finding a good one...

The Ultimate Card.

What is your ultimate card?  You could own it or your could have coveted it for many years...which one is it?  Send me an email or comment and I'll share your ultimate card.


  1. 1991 Score Bo Jackson. You know the one... with the shoulder pads and bat. I love that card, it is beautiful!

  2. That's a great card. Back in the day, Bo was the hottest thing going. He was a great ballplayer...just wish his hips (he had hip problems, right?) could've held up.
