Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers
I am trying to obtain as many different Dodgers franchise cards as I can. There are currently about 117,000 unique cards for the Los Angeles and Brooklyn Dodgers and the names used prior to Dodgers, the Brooklyn Grooms, Brooklyn Superbas and Brooklyn Robins.
Currently building team sets from 1948-1959 Topps and Bowman.
I am also seeking One Million Dodgers cards. Any card, any year, any condition. Have other teams available for bulk trades.
Super collecting Carl Erskine and Orel Hershiser.
Hall of Fame
I collect cards of Hall of Fame inductees. I collect their main cards from the main sets from the years they played. Not interested in a lot of 80s/90s junk in this collection but will include some base.
Those inducted as Managers will have only their Manager cards included.
Collecting all cards of Indianapolis Indians players.
Pre-War and other Vintage
Collecting anything pre-1980. Currently buying T206 and Colgan’s Chips cards of Indianapolis Indians and looking for Brooklyn Superbas era cards.
I am starting to collect Exhibit Baseball post cards.

Game Used and Serial Numbered
I don’t seek out game used or serial numbered cards, but when they come into my possession I generally hold onto them.
Odd ball cards, particularly those associated with food products or various non-baseball related name brands.
Collecting Scott Earl cards. He has a 1985 Donruss card #491 and several minor league cards. Scott is from my hometown and is a family friend.
I also like to collect historic artifacts, autographs and photos that have nothing to do with sports. I have a Schuyler Colfax signature among that colletion. Colfax was the 25th Speaker of the House of Representatives and Vice President of the United States under President Ulysses S. Grant.
