After picking up a scanner on Friday, I've scanned all of my personal collection. I just got finishing redesigning my Photobucket, removing old links of digital camera pictures and replacing them with scans.

In my old Sosa and Wright collection topics, some of the pictures no longer work. Plus, even for those that are still working (which I attached rather than linked to), scans will show them much better. So, I decided to start a new show and tell thread - for my entire personal collection. This will include cards from my Sosa collection, Wright collection, Sweet Spot Classic collection, and any other PC card I have. Since I have more to work with, I'll try to provide one picture each day.

First, I'll start with my first game-used card: 2000 UD Ovation Greg Maddux

I didn't think Wright signed TTM.

Some say he uses a ghost signer. But, the signature looks authentic when compared to my other two autographs of Wright.

Nice Collection I am looking forward to seeing your collection. By the way, I have been comparing Wright's ttm autos and yours looks authentic.

I like them like that too. Allows for much better detail.
dviv17
I don't like them so huge that one has to scroll a ton over, but I like them that size. I downsize them by one on photobucket when I post scans.

Yeah - I've got them at 'message board' size right now.

Well, not all of them, but I shrink the pictures before I post them here.
bigalexx
nice cant wait to see the rest of your PC
Iplayfootball_90
I usually try to keep mine about that size as well.

How true!

My picture for today: I said earlier it was my first autograph, but after thinking - it isn't. laugh.gif But, it's one of my first autographs - I'd say around my third. It's one of my favorite pieces - a nice, clean, on-card autograph, of an important player for the World Series 1950s Yankees. He passed away earlier this year.

Thanks. Steve hasn't offered anything because he's not a Hall of Famer. laugh.gif

Thanks everyone!

Tomorrow will be my first patch.
ffman
My first patch, from my first hobby box. I picked up the box at a Wal-Mart Supercenter; I later found out it was an overpriced box, but I did well.

Today I have four cards. And, these are actually my first autographs, but of course not pack-pulled.

In 1994, Nabisco held a promotion - send in serial numbers from a certain number of their products, along with a small amount of money (forgot how much, but it wasn't alot) for four MLB autographed cards. Jim Palmer, Duke Snider, Frank Robinson, and Bob Gibson.

The cards (they're not in a binder page - just in toploaders taped to one):

And the certificate of authenticity for each:

Great additions Cody, thanks for sharing the collection!
Iplayfootball_90
WOW! Those are awesome for not having to pay much, Cody. ohmy.gif

For today:

I know very little about the player, but it's one of my favorite cards due to the Biblical inscription - the only card like that I have.

The inscription is '1 Cor. 10:31'.

Nice auto, Cody! Thanks for sharing!

Nice stuff !!

Thank you everyone!

For today - one of my favorite cards, if not THE favorite, although it probably holds the lowest book value.

2005 Fleer Authentix Jersey Authentix Sammy Sosa (w/ Majestic logo).

There are patch variants in this set (Patch Authentix) but, oddly enough, this is not part of the variant set. It's a regular jersey - I just happened to pull a swatch with the logo on it.

wow, thats one of the best jersey cards I've ever seen!

Nice card!!!

Thanks. Definitely the best regular jersey I have, with my Nolan Ryan Astros 2-color behind it.

Next, one of the centerpieces of my collection:

2005 Reflections Dual Signature Red Jose Reyes/David Wright /99

And, Wright had a great game today, hitting two home runs, 4 RBI, 2 walks, a stolen base, and scoring three runs. The Mets won 10-2.

Oh....and the score was 10-7, not 10-2. laugh.gif

David Wright's 1st home run went 460 feet.
