Couldn’t help myself today, and continue to build my Topps issued 80s. Just love the Gwynn and Mattingly and of course as a Braves fan been looking for a couple nice copies of Glavine and Smoltz.

This came together quickly, and he's a great subject!

It may take a while, but I think he's a HOFer. An excellent buy-low player.

Agreed...with prices on the stuff I usually buy through the roof, I’ve been buying some low-pop graded Lofton...and buying some raw and submitting to PSA, as well.

A few other guys I think will eventually make HOF, too. It’s been fun!

I'm not seeing it. He only got votes in one year, 2013, and it was 3 percent. It would take a cosmic turnaround in perception of his career for him to make the Hall.

Very, very pleased to add Bo to my collection. He was waiting on me yesterday when I wandered into my LCS. Another childhood-era dream come true.

Just a great card that represented an exciting time in baseball. I always loved his 87 Topps, too. Cool pickup!

It'll have to come from the Veterans Committee.

I guess things change and anything is possible but he feels like a significantly weaker version of Tim Raines to me. Also he played for about 50 teams which won't help.

Tim Raines career WAR: 69.4
Kenny Lofton career WAR: 68.4

WAR isn’t everything, but I think the “lots of teams” thing masks a heck of a player.

And Lofton did play most of 10 seasons with Cleveland. He just also played a year or less for other 10 teams.

Hard to believe this inaugural issue still hasn't gotten any traction.
30 years this year.

Default January 2021 Pickups

Found pretty good deals on a beautiful Alonso rookie and a nice Hoerner rookie for my son.

Updating for the Wander I bought from TheDDG. This was my first time buying on the forum and I can't imagine an easier process. It's like eBay without the fees. He couldn't have made it any easier and it was a great deal.

I loved those card when they first came out too, Ray.
I think, although this is just a guess, that because this was the era where cards were flooding the market (junk wax era) they are all being lumped in with that?
This one, however, which I posted in the link below, finished well, imo.

Peter and I were discussing it somewhat in this thread as well.

Bought a few Boxes of 1991 Stadium Club Series 1 and pulled this nice Griffey from the second pack I opened.

Congrats I had wanted one for years too when I finally picked up mine. One of a few cards I will be unlikely to ever sell.

I'm with you, Jesse. Some people have said "that's nothing but a junk wax printing error!", but that's missing the impact and importance the card has in the hobby. I love it.

Yea that card was the holy grail back in the day. More of a myth actually as a kid I had heard about it but never actually seen one. I bought this one maybe 3 years ago.

Ours look like twins, a little O/C top to bottom and a touch on the bottom right corner. Congrats on buying yours before the spike!
