I can only have one???

I don't collect Hockey, Football or Basketball cards.  As a matter of fact, I don't care much for them so I don't know why I would capitalize them.  I do have a smattering of Stars, Cowboys and Mavericks, but I don't actively chase them so I couldn't begin to tell you a favorite set from each of those sports.

I do collect a Baseball card or two.  My choice for a favorite set changes from time to time, but thanks to the  Million Card Giveaway from Topps back in 2010, I became aware of some amazing play at the plate cards in the 1956 Topps set.

I won't show them all here because I've got something in mind for them in a future post, but I absolutely love the 1956 Topps set.  It's not even just about the patp cards anymore.  When I grow up and get rich (I'm only 41), I'm going to put together the whole set.  For now, I'm happy with the few cards I have and I wouldn't give them up for anything.  


  1. I hope to one day build this set myself. It's my favorite card design of all-time.

    1. I'll be looking for these if I ever get to a card show.
