I was recently able to pick up a new Giants card that not only features one of my favorite former Giants but also comes from one of my favorite autograph sets of all time. Check out this JT Snow autograph:
The Giants have 5 players in the set and I have 3 of them. In addition to the JT Snow, I have star reliever Robb Nen:
Any my favorite player of all time, Willie McCovey.
The other two Giants on the checklist are Damon Minor (which should be a relatively cheap pick up) and Barry Bonds (just the opposite). One day I would like to finish the team set.
There was a day when I considered going after the entire autograph set but I really don't need another collecting focus at this time. While I do think the cards are great looking, going after a set of 150 autograph cards released 16 years ago seems like a little bigger than I would like to tackle. In the meantime, I will enjoy my Giants.
