Just for the "F" of It #11

Time to show off another card I picked up just for the fun of it.  Today's card is a great looking card of 2017 Hall of Famer Tim Raines.


My Hall of Fame collection primarily consists of autographed cards, especially of the modern players and I do have an autograph of Raines in my collection.  However, when I saw this card pop up on Sportslots in an auction I had to bid and ended up bringing it home for $4.

This 2005 SP Legendary Cuts Glory Days set is one of my favorites.  I have contemplated trying to build either the insert set or base relic set several times.  It is a checklist that is 50 deep and it is a dozen years old so it would be quite an undertaking.  I really like the design with the color photo and sepia tones to the card.  This Raines card is great looking with the Expos uni and great looking blue jersey swatch.

Have you ever gone through with trying to put together a relic set?

  1. I tried putting together the 2016 Panini Diamond Kings Rookie Signatures Silver set but I've lost steam with that project. I have the big names too, Seager and Schwarber

  3. Beautiful card. I say go for it. That would be a fun set to build. I built the 2008 UD Masterpieces Captured on Canvas relic (football) set back in the day. I also completed the 2013 Topps Manufactured Rookie Card Patch (baseball) set. Not sure if that qualifies as a relic set though. And I didn't actually build it... but I purchased the 2005 Topps Pristine Legends Title Threads Relic (baseball) set earlier in the year.
