Ok guys, a little more than a month ago I started my Joe Carter collection. It was about time. Right now I have 11 GU cards and a refractor. About a month ago I made a big purchase of about 500 cards for around 10 bucks. These include his RC and some of those rare issues put out by random companies.

Joe is one of my favorite players of all time, and the Topps Tribute card is one of my favorites cards (I have one too).


If you have a Joe Carter have or wantlist, let me know if you are looking to do some trading. I am sure I have some Carters you could use.
otis0220
Yeah, I'll get back to you about what we may need.

Thanks. Well he became to be one of my favorite players when I was little when I started getting into sports around 15 years ago. I started to like the Jays and the Marlins. That home run he hit might have had something to do with it haha. It just defined him.

Love the autographed game-used batting gloves and the image of Carter in the card below. Truly one of his defining moments.

Ok guys, last update for 2010! These 2 came in today. Some interesting ones, first:

user posted image

This is a 2002 Danbury Mint 22 Karat Gold Card. The design looks a little like a 2001 Topps and 2006 Fleer Tradition.

This may look like a regular 89 Topps but tall. Actually this is a "talking" card. It's actually about 3x5 and you would put the card in a SportsTalk player. Sort of a rare collectible. It even has its own wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_Talk

Very nice collection!

Joe Carter falls into the "not quite" category of my supplement to my HOF collection called "Not Yet/Not Quite". Joe was a really good player who may have put up HOF numbers if he played longer, but was a player every team would want to have! To me, he is the everyday player version of Dave Stewart.

Cool looking gold card!

The others were doubles. Some of the main cards I want to highlight are the 95 Leaf Statistical Standouts /5000, 96 Leaf Limited Limited Gold and 93 UD SP Platinum Power Die-Cut. I already had this GU card creased in a couple areas so it's nice to have a nice one now. smile.gif
