What player do you think you have the best collection of in the world? (If any)
 
This obviously lends itself to billionaires or people that have been obsessed with collecting one player. I have been actively collecting Javier Baez, and I donít think I have his best collection in the world, but I feel like I would be top 10, maybe.

Anyone else have a particular player that they have a ton of thatís not collected by manythat they would feel confident declaring themselves world champ?

I'm fairly confident I'm in the running for Lou Brock.


There is also a Yaz thread and Clemente thread going on.

I would have to imagine Clemnte and Yaz are heavily collected. As a Cubs fan, I can appreciate the comments on that Brock thread.

Including post retirement issues, loaded with many 1/1s, of which I was able to secure a decent amount, and my near complete checklist of other than 1/1 cards, plus the variety of other items (aside from items that have not seen the light of day since the 80s, a couple rare items I failed to win or chose not to afford and super high end memorabilia), I'd challenge any takers for the claim to Steve Garvey.

Up until 1 year after he retired I would have had either the #1 or #2 Wade Boggs collection. The best was either me or a gentleman from Washington. Can't remember his name anymore but we cost each other a boat load of cash.

I sold all my rare stuff in 2001 because of a bad business deal. It really sucked at the time but now I am glad i done it as those cards sold for way more then than they would now.

I think I have the best possible Darryl Palmer collection. :)

Josh Fogg as evidenced here: http://jasondeanmartin.weebly.com/jo...ollection.html

I have added a few things but not updated my stats. Added a game used bat a couple weeks ago. Set me back a whopping $20.

So I admit my ignorance: who is that?

Man, another Cubs heartbreaker, Steve Garvey. Any cocktail napkins from his people of affection?

I'd be tough to beat on Marshall University graduates in the pros (granted I am sure someone would top me on Randy Moss). I have a huge collection including NFL, MLB, MiLB, CFL, Italian basketball, school issue, Ashland Oil, European football and generally weird stuff. Probably 10,000 different cards. WVADavis would probably be close, but he's the only one I know.
