Does anybody still collect baseball cards? I stopped about 10 years ago but I kept them packed away in my closet. I recently pulled them out again to show my nephew and I came across a box that I kept my favorite cards in. Not necessarily the most valuable in money, but for sentimental reasons. Anyway, some of the Sox ones include '56 Aparicio rookie card, '52 Minoso, '57 Pierce, '59 Fox, '75 Allen and '81 Baines. Does anyone else have any favorite baseball cards?

I gotta go with the 1990 Upper Deck Frank Thomas card where he's oh-so-slightly flipping the bird to whoever's sitting next to him.

I like the 1990 Leaf Frank Thomas and the 1988 Donruss Ivan Calderon.

I don't collect cards so much anymore. I stopped in 91 or so and then I got to buying those "good deals" at wal-mart where they stuffed the tube with lots of packs about 5 years ago. They all rest in my closet. I just can't get myself to throw them all out.

Just off the top of my head I like the Rookie Fleer Kittle card. Any early Baines card is nice too. I also like the 82 tops Chet Lemon. I kinda wish Chet would have been a part of that 83 team. But I realize Rudy made that team go.

1980 Bob Molinaro

He's putting in a huge chaw as his action shot. I carry it around in my wallet.

haha nice catch. Frank looks pissed off in that card.

I cherished Frank's 1990 Leaf rookie card because it used to be worth 100+, but after all the years where his popularity fell its now about 20.00. I still love it.

I also have a minor league card of Ray Durhams little brother. Why cant I remember his name?!

Did you open that by chance? If you did, how do they look? I'm afraid to take the plastic off my little box.

Of that my favorite is his earliest card--1995 Hudson Valley Renegades

1990 Topps Frank Thomas Rookie Card, with him in his Auburn U jersey.

I could be wrong about the year though.

I stopped collecting years ago, but I can't really pick one card. I have a ton of Harold, Fisk, and Frank. Those were my favorite to collect.

1991 Frank Thomas Topps, he looks bad ass at the plate.


1991 Carlton Fisk Topps, ready to tag out Cecil Fielder.

My 1992 AUTOGRAPHED Guillen Card. Bought it for $5 two days before he became the manager. Fire sale, of course since he was going to be such a bad manager(as conveyed to me by the clerk).

The 1956 Topps set is the best. I especially like the Aparicio rookie, Fox, Pierce, Minoso, and the Rivera card that shows the NY cop interfering with a catch in the background. Then the whole 1990 Upper Deck set is a work of art.

When I was home during Christmas I decided to go through all my baseball cards out of morbid curiosity to see if I had anything good as it had been a good 7 or 8 years since I last looked at them. When I stumbled on this gem I couldn't help but laugh:

Bob Wickman, 1990 South Bend White Sox team set. I'm fairly certain the cards were a promotional giveaway, and his is the only name I can now recognize from that team.

It isn't my favorite card, but it's definitely the quirkiest of the lot. He's a bit more stout these days, nevertheless I can now emphatically answer "YES!" the next time my mom asks, "So do you think any of the players we saw when you and your brother were little ever made it to the majors?"

Here's a bit of trivia:
Who did the Sox acquire when they traded Bob Wickman?

I've got one of him in Edmonton. He's gained a couple of pounds since then. :D:

I just went through all of the cards that I had collected since I started. I stopped about 10 years ago, and just recently started again, and wanted to see what I had. I had a ton of Guillen player cards, some pretty good Frank Thomas cards. But I can't name my favorite. I just bought a Mark Buehrle rookie card, so I guess I'd have to say that one if I had to say one.

Man......I can remember going to all those abseball card shows in the early 80's and everyone "investing" in baseball cards for their kids college educations. That plan didn't work!!!

I'm in the same situation, but I have a great collection now, and I'm not sure I'd sell any of it anyway.

As far as my favorite card, it has to be the 1992 Topps Stadium Club Frank Thomas... number 301... a happy Frank... just as we all want to remember him.
