2017 Chronicles - Swatches

Year: 2017
Manufacturer: Panini
Set: Chronicles
Card Type: Insert, Relic
Insert Set: Swatches
Card Number: CS-RF
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered, Relic
Relic Type: Jersey
Serial Number: 040/299

To say it's been slow at the Rollie Fingers Collector world headquarters is an understatement.  At least when it comes to picking up new cards for the collection.  But as luck would have it I just got a trade package in the mail from Julie who writes A Cracked Bat.  She also happens to be a Tigers collector amongst other things and I sent her a slug of Tigers a while back.  In the trade package were a great selection of Brewers cards about 85% of them I didn't already have, which is a boon considering the massive sorting and cataloging of my Brewers collection I've been undertaking, closing in on 9000 unique cards for the team!  To help add to that total and to my Rollie collection Julie also sent this gem.

I've seen this card pop up on my ebay searches, but I've been really limiting my online purchases lately and mainly to just new Yount cards.  So adding a new Rollie, a new Rollie serial numbered relic, and he's featured as a Brewer, or as close as Panini can get is great.  The card commemorates Rollies 300th save.    

Thanks Julie!

2016 Topps Archives Snapshots Black and White Parallel

Year: 2016
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Archives Snapshots
Card Number: AS-RF
Card Type: Parallel
Parallel Set: Black and  White


The other Rollie card I picked up from last year's COMC Black Friday sale was this Archives Snapshot Black and White parallel.  The card is exactly the same as the base color card only, you know, in black and white.  Still a great little set.

2016 Topps Archives Snapshots


Year: 2016
Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: Archives Snapshots
Card Number: AS-RF
Card Type: Base


I picked up a few Rollie Fingers off of COMC during their Black Friday event.  I've really slowed my PC of Rollie, but that's mainly because there are fewer cards to chase and most of them are low numbered auto cards.  Anywho,  The Topps Archives Snapshots was an Topps online exclusive.  Each box had 12 cards: one autograph, one black and white parallel and 10 base cards.  The base set is small, only 50 cards and there are 36 autograph subjects, Rollie has an autograph in the set as well and there are 2 parallels.  I really like this card and not just because it features Rollie as a Brewer.  It's a great photo.

2005 Upper Deck Hall of Fame baseball Silver

In hopes that I don't want the Rollie Blog to get booted from the Sportscard Blogroll and in the event that I find time to start posting regularly again I give you my arbitary 6 month post.  

This time featuring Rollies 2005 Upper Deck Hall of Fame Silver Parallel card.

1992 Treat Autograph with binder.

Been real slow here at the Rollie Fingers Collector.  Rollie has had a few new cards issued for him.  But the majority of those have been autographs or really low numbered relics from some higher end sets.  So I've been focusing elsewhere in my collecting.  But I picked this gem up a while back.  Treat ProAutographs put out a bunch of different retired and current players using different cards.  I'm not sure what they retailed for.  Rollie's card is a 1992 Upper Deck Heroes of Baseball #H7.  To make this even more interesting Upper Deck also put out an autographed version of this card hand numbered to 3000.

2005 Upper Deck Origins Baseball Red Bordered Old Judge

Year: 2005
Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Set: Origins
Card Number: 128
Card Type: Insert Parallel
Insert set: Old Judge
Parallel Set: Red Border
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 27/99

I guess this will mark the bi-annual Rollie post. I've really let this blog go.  It doesn't help that I have been focusing any of my collecting time, energy, or money on my Rollie collection.  Factor in that the collection has been stored away as we try and sell our home and the lack of office space to scan and to even write post and well something has got to give and that is unfortunately this blog.

Anywho  I do have a few cards cued up and so I figure I should post something to prove this blog isn't dead and won't get booted of the blogrolls.

We have featured here one of the many many sets and paralle sets Upper Deck produced in 2005.  There are tons of parallels to chase for this insert that include some autograph versions.  I like the overall look of the read bordered cards and it being serial numbered to just 99 doesn't hurt either.
