Welcome to the #80want list. My most wanted, nay - needed - cards.

  1. 2010 Topps Golden Moments Patch/Autograph JP Arencibia /10
    • Seriously.
  2. 2012 Topps #207b JP Arencibia Short Print Photo Variations (Rookie Cup Logo)
    • Like #100 from 2013 Topps, JP had two of the best photo cards in the 2012 set. It captures everything I love about baseball - dirt, chalk, the rookie cup logo and full of catcher's gear. Hell, it bumped Joe Mauer's Pristine RC from 2002 from it's comfortable #2 slot.
  3. 2002 Topps Pristine Refractors #151 Joe Mauer
    • True Rookie Card of Joe Mauer, but refractory, and limited to /1999
  4. 2002 Bowman #379 Joe Mauer
    • True Rookie Card
  5. 2011 Bowman Topps 100 TP1 Bryce Harper
    • Just an awesome shot on this card.
  6. 1998 Topps Stars #1 Ken Griffey Jr. 1 Star Variation
    • In a group break @Another Orioles Blog, I had the Seattle Mariners. I was incredibly lucky to pull the base, 2-star, 3-star and 4-star Junior Griffeys...however, just didn't find the 1-star. It's like a base card but zoomed in slightly with silver foil.
  7. 2001 Topps Finest #134 Jose Reyes (True Rookie)
    • Numbered to /999, this is the hard-to-find rookie of newest Blue Jay and future GBOAT, Jose Reyes.
  8. 2012 Bowman Draft All-Star Futures Francisco Lindor
    • Shiny, blue, limited to /199. 
  1. 2011 Topps Chrome #182 JP Arencibia Red Refractor/Atomic Refractor
    • Completes The Magical JP Arencibia Rainbow Crusade
