For the last year of so, I have been casually beginning a collection of Baseball, Hockey &, more recently, Football Hall of Fame Game Used cards.

I'm not a basketball fan at all, so collecting HOF GU from that sport has never interested me. As for baseball, a HOF collection is right up my alley, since I couldn't name 1/4 of the players in the All-Star game. I'm definitely "old school".

Since joining TCC in February, I've gotten a little more agressive, thanks to trades & Group breaks. I also enjoy ebay "low-balling".

I'm relatively early in my collecting, so I've (for the most part) concentrated on lower-end cards. When it come to "Game Used", I'm not picky. Jerseys, bats, sticks, boards, shoes, jockstraps...all qualify. The goal is one per player, although on occasion, I may get more than one, particularly if I like the look of it (or if they are a great deal!)

I've posted some of my additions under the "Mail day" forum, but after looking around the site, as well as seeing some of the questions & comments, I've decided to show the collection in this thread.

There is a running total in my signature.

As always, comments, questions & smart-aleck remarks are always welcome!

I'll start out with a couple of new additions:

From the most recent Hockey Hall of Fame class ( a 99 cent ebay pick up):

Luc Robitaille (unnumbered)

Wayne Gretzky jersey. This was a pack pull from one of the earliest Be A Player issues. Jersey cards were so rare at the time, it had a BV of $450. It's still at $200.

As you can see, I got suckered into using SCD Authentic for grading! Spent a lot of $ on what has turned out to be an overpriced protection system!

Very nice collection of HOF cards. Some very cool stuff there.

If you're into HOF Baseball Game Used, there is no better set (in my opinion) than the 2000 Fleer Club 3000 Set! Beautiful stuff. You can see what they look like in my collection thread HERE. Good luck with the collection!

From ebay. Charlie Taylor # 58/100

I'm making a slight adjustment to the subject matter in the thread. I'll now be including autographs of HOFers as well.

My focus is still on GU, but I'd be crazy to turn down a nice auto.

Here's a couple:

Ozzie Newsome (also pack pull)
