You think people would wonder who Joey Belle is? I have a couple David Arias rookies which are worth $30+. Who the heck is David Arias :-?

In the case of Belle, that would be a ton of Albert's most recent cards. I had quite a few "Joey" Belle's back in the day.

Now to see who's been collecting for awhile. B-)


Man, I used to have tons of 1989 and 1990 cards with "Joey" Belle. Nice call, Mad.

I'm a little late joining this post, but I have about 5000+ Clyde Drexler cards. As for baseball I have 500+ Tim Salmon cards and 400+ JT Snow cards.

To me, variety is the most impressive. Dr Duran Duran said he's got 500 diff Seitzers? If true, that might be most impressive. Seitzer's last year was in 1997 so his last card year was probably '98. To get to 500 diff means he's likely got a ton of oddball stuff and rare-ish/numbered parallels and inserts.

My guy is Rusty Greer. Unfortunately my pick is poor not because Rusty's career was less than outstanding and came to an early end, but because when his good cards were filtering through ebay there were two or three bigger collectors on there with bigger wallets. Still I have some cool ones like a 1997 Topps Gold Label 1/1 and a strange oversized 1998 Fleer Classic 63 numbered 00 of 63.

I don't have a lot of any single player. I think I have about 30 different Mattingly cards. I also was really big into Tim Salmon when he first came up, so I have a bunch of his cards including that ridiculous insert set Fleer Ultra had for him. I think I have a minor league card of his too.
