Not to mention the signed Rich Klein 92 Topps card. Nearly forgot the Keith Olberman T-206 cards they put out a few years back. Lastly, the Sy Berger Fan Favorites auto.

Can anyone think of some other hobby personnel related cards out there?
My 1992 card is actually part of a 66 card set. I did an article on that set in Sports Collectors Daily and if he is willing to admit it, a board member has the uncut sheet.
Look for our show listings in the Net 54 Calendar section

I have many fond memories of purchasing sets from Renata from the late 70's through the late 80's. Here is my look back at a number of the different card sets that Renata issued as well as the Baseball Hobby Card Magazine that she published.

From my winter 1983 copy of BHCR, here is an interview with Renata herself .....apparently she and her husband (former Yankee batboy Bill Hongach) have/had quite a collection themselves. If I had a collection like the one they have, I would be smiling in all of my pictures (unlike Renata in this article).

When I was working for my father back in the 1980's one of the places
we did work at was a housing development in Highland Mills. We were
doing the tile work at their house and I remember having a discussion
with her about baseball cards and her shows but I was out of the
collecting loop at that time.
