1998 Fleer Sports Illustrated Then and Now: Legends of the Game #10

I love finding new Rollie Cards.  I like them even more when the cost me a penny.  Yep this was in my mailbox this morning.  A great 1998 Fleer Sports Illustrated Then and Now Legends of the Game.  Of course I had to pay for shipping, but I still won this card for one cent and shipping was very reasonable. 

A great looking card with lots of picture. This set had various themes in the set,  the first 36 cards were Legends of the Games, then other themes like A Place in History, Legends of Today, and Legends of the Future.

2000 Upper Deck Legends Legendary Signatures Autograph card.

It's looking like another dismal year for new Rollie cards, but that just means we can focus on picking up great cards of yore.  Just in is this great 2000 Upper Deck Legends Legendary Signatures autograph card.

The one thing I really don't like about this card is the fact that Rollie is featured wearing an Upper Deck hat. What's up with that?  Looking at a few of the other cards in this set all that I could find have the inset picture with the player with a team hat.  

It's still a great looking card and the auto is on card which is always awesome.  Having such a nice big space for him to sign you get a great looking signature.  Add to that that this card was less than a ten dollar bill delivered and it's another great addition to the collection

2013 Panini Cooperstown Autograph #d to 700

I have a lot of Rollie Fingers autographed cards. It's one of the things I love about collecting him. His autos are cheap and so are the really cool relic cards.  On average a Rollie auto goes for around $10.  And that's a great price.   I had been trying to pick this card up for a while. I had already picked up his other auto in the set numbered to 199 and I got that card for a steal.  Well patience pays off again. I finally found a seller not asking for the moon with a decent starting price and ended up snagging this guy for $6 and even with shipping got it to me for under ten bucks!  It's been a really slow couple years for new Rollie cards and I'm glad I finally was able to pick up  the last card from last years Cooperstown set.
