I gotta collection of all 4 major sports but my best in football would be 3 albums filled with rookies from players like barry and aikman, to vick faulk and many many others. Got the most in baseball and basketball.

Vintage yes, graded not really. Maybe it's short-sighted and unwise of me, but I'd rather pick up a new card than spend the money to have something graded...

Just a matter of taste, I guess. :-)

The graded specimens aren't just part of a collection, they are also investments. Grading cards isn't especially expensive either, and once they are graded, they are safe from air/water/damage, and easily appreciated from the confines of a sonically sealed lucite slab. Achieving a high grade on even some of the newer issues can double, triple, even quadruple the cards' raw book value.
For example, the last card I had graded was a 1983 Donruss Tony Gwynn rookie I pulled from a pack. I payed $10.00 for 3 packs at a local hobby shop that stocks vintage packs. The card looked absolutely flawless in every way. Perfect centering, wear-free edges and corners... PSA thought so too. They gave it a gem mint "10" grade.
Ungraded the card books for like $25.00. PSA 10? Somewhere north of about a hundred bucks, and they have come DOWN in value.
That's what is so great about collecting. There are a zillion reasons and ways to collect; I collect quality cards of players I like. What are some of the highlights of your collection OB1?

Got a Shaun Alexander Auto the other day. Also got one from him in the mail. He seems like a really nice guy. He signed the card personally to me and he added another card with it.
