Nope, can't do it. I can't even get it down to one item per subject. That said, there are a few items on my no-trade list:













That said, if someone offered me a crazy payment or trade, say a 1952 Topps Mantle for the Marciano RC salesman sample, I would make the deal.

I'm pursuing a version of this. I hadn't collected anything in decades and decided to sell the handful of nice cards I'd managed to acquire as a kid to start collecting a playing career-era card for each of the first 5 HOFers. Since then, I've picked up a T206 Mathewson portrait (Piedmont 150), a T206 Johnson profile (Polar Bear), and a T206 Cobb bat off (Sweet Caporal). I'm not sure what I'll do after I get a Wagner and a Ruth, and I don't plan to limit the collection to any specific number of cards, but it will probably always be small, and I want each card to be cool and notable.

I did keep one card for sentimental reasons - a signed 1965 Topps Colavito, which Rocky signed for me in the 1990s because we got our hair cut at the same barber.

Maybe I could do a version of this. I love to collect sets, in lower grade, as that's the only way to afford them. Perhaps I would augment my sets with a # of nicer cards (likely duplicating the lesser cards I have in my set binder)

Hmm,I think whatever number I start with, I'll end up increasing over the years :-)

Nevermind

That’s a good idea for a collection

Looking at your "no trade" group is quite a treat!

Complete discolsure: I usually have my "Box of Twenty" separate from another segment of my collection. For instance I am working on a T202 back run for all Cobbs AND I have a box of eight right now.

I missed out last night on a card I really wanted to add to my Box 20 collection - 1951 Mays in Heritage. Just could not pull the trigger, but it looks beautiful!!

I have thought, even if only briefly, about limiting myself to the 1970s decade. It was when I was a boy and when I will always remember virtually all the players. It is not an endless amount of stuff, but there's plenty to work on and always some odd regional you didn't know about.
