2009 Goudey: The Obsession Continues

So yes, I'm more than mildly obsessed with this set. I've got an idea for a longer post that's floating around in my head to try to explain it, but for now, I've got an agenda.

Thanks to one Goudey blaster and one fantastic blogger I was able to nab both the Bill Hall and Ben Sheets Brewer relics. Let's forget that neither of them actually play for the Crew anymore.

What I'd like to do is lay my hands upon the other Goudey Memorabilia and Goudey Graphs from this year's set. And yes, I realize we're talking about guys like Prince Fielder, Robin Yount, and Paul Molitor but I'm sure there's also someone out there dying to deal off their JJ Hardy Memorabilia card, right?

I'd really like to know if anyone out there is holding any of these memorabilia or autographed cards. Whether it's working out a trade offer or brokering a sale, let me know if you've got one of these and we can hammer out a deal.

Sure, I could buy them on eBay, I'm sure, but I really like getting to know the other people out there collecting, and this is the best way to do it, in my opinion.

So leave me a note or shoot me an email and let's make a deal.

Also, someone HAS to have that Kevin Slowey card, right? And as you'll soon find out, I'm just down to Slowey and the Bob Gibson on the base set. I'm so excited to finish it, someone please share in that excitment with me by letting me know what I can trade you for either of those cards.


  1. I don't know what year it is, but I THINK I have a Mat Gamel Goudey auto. Interested? Let me know and I can start searching (or not).

  2. i have the Gibson card and the slowey card too...... shoot me an email....
