    I know I am not the only who use to or is still collecting sports cards. I gave up collecting in the mid 90's but I buy the occasional new rookie sensation......

    So here are a few of my favorites...starting with my Pride and Joy...

    I was able to obtain this with several other cards like...

    Later on I start collecting cards myself and I have the Bret Hull's, Joe Sakic, Brian Leetch, Pavel Bure, Peter Forsberg, Jaromir Jagr, Eric Lindros, and I also collected baseball so I have Ken Griffey, and basketball like Shaquille O'Neal etc.....

    I started to think about these b/c I left them all at my mother's house and just recently there was a water line that busted just above her which leaked all through her place...I left my main cards in a box inside plastic holders and the rest in binders next to it and I came very close to losing them all....So I have them now sealed in a large container, so I don't have to worry about them being destroyed now....

    So tell me whatcha got....:)

    WOW.

    Keep those damn cards!!!

    I have a signed Tigers hat with Justin Verlander's autograph. He got the no-hitter in 2007 against Milwaukee. This was pre-no-hitter.

    Ever since that day, it has been kept in a plastic zip-lock bag. Looking for a glass box/container for it :up:

    I used to collect B-Ball cards. I sold most of them. The only ones I kept are my Jordans. I have about 105 of him. The only one I don't have that i would like to have someday is his rookie card.

    not really :csad:

    i think we talked after a baseball game once. Every year the ODU team plays an exhibition game against the Triple AAA team here. (used to be farm club for mets, now its for orioles). I remember he was mowing everyone down. He was throwing faster than the opposing pitcher who was in the farm club.

    I think i might have his autograph around here somewhere, if i find it i'll post
