My Hall of Fame Binder posts have been quite entertaining for me to write about. They also seem to fairly well viewed and I appreciate the comments you, the reader, have been leaving. It's a rare day when I come up with a good idea on my own. For the record, the amount of joy I've had from putting the HOF binder together makes it a great idea, but it wasn't my idea.
AJ, The Lost Collector, was collecting cards of Hall of Fame players for his son a couple of years before I decided to stop being jealous of a newborn and do something about it. Not only did AJ help to inspire my favorite new project, but he just sent me a PWE of Cubs.
Let's take a look at what a fifty-five cent stamp can deliver.
I bought one pack of 2019 Topps Series 1 and that will probably be my last. I was lucky enough to find two Cubs in that hobby pack. AJ is helping me build my team set.
I, like many collectors, could do without the Topps Now advertisements. It is what it is.
How about this card? Sweet action shot of a flying Albert Almora and it's all foiled up!
This card is my favorite base card from 2019 Series 1 so far. I haven't seen all the photos that were used yet, but this is a unique shot and one that speaks to Baez' defensive skill set.
We started with a Sammy card and we'll finish with a Kraft Singles SuperStars card of Sammy.
AJ, thank you for the Cubs cards. Also, again, thanks for the HOF binder idea. It's been a lot of fun so far!
