Really glad you liked the site. It WAS an intense amount of work. Really really crazy. The scanning, the writing, getting and sizing all the photos to be uniform, all the data. Ugh it was a lot. Good news is I'm a teacher and just blitzed it last summer to get the darn site up and going.

Part of the joy of collecting is sharing. I was getting dulled and disinterested in collecting and figured the best way to renew my interest was to make a site so it's easily shared.

Maybe someday I end up selling the collection and including the site for the buyer.

Wish I knew more about SEO so the site could be improved.

Thanks for looking it the site. It means a lot to have collectors interact and enjoy it.

I'm sure some others with more knowledge can chime in on toughies, but there are a good number of deceased players from this set already. I won't catch them all, but looking at a checklist, these are guys I know have died: Howser, G. Carter, B. Diaz, D Smith, F Williams, D Moore, Boros, C Brown, T Phillips, S Anderson, Ruhle, Mahler, B Forsch, Fregosi, Welch, J Niekro, D Williams, Puckett, D Henderson, Bamburger, D. Lowry, Mauch, Gwynn, F Wills, Cerutti, Clutterbuck, Weaver, Pastore, Uribe, A Lopez, Scurry, Porter, Bergman, Quisenberry, Show, Flanagan & Andujar.

Ricky Wright is probably the #1 tough to impossible card for this set. For whatever reason, he is unwilling to sign that card and he seems to be harder than average to get in general for a common player.

Donnie Moore and Bo Diaz both died within a couple years after their appearances in the set.
