I have finally completed the 2010 Allen & Ginter White Sox team set!  As an added bonus, the Alex Rios card is also partially signed by Sergio Santos!

I have added the checklist for 2011 Allen & Ginter.  This year's A&G set is definitely a bit of a departure from the A&G sets of the past.  You can click the sample images below to be taken to the checklist, or click here for the main checklist page.

Over the last few weeks, I have picked up a bunch of certified autos.  Here are some of the nicer ones.

Last week I received three autographs from Magglio Ordonez.  The autographs were obtained through the Detroit Tigers "Autographs for a Cause" program.  Magglio is one of eight current Tigers players that signs for a donation.  More information can be found here.

I just haven't had time lately to send out an TTM requests.  I used to be a TTM machine, but the last requests I sent out were in July of 2010.  I finally made myself send a few out on May 31st.  I sent to Mark Buehrle, Jon Garland, Octavio Dotel, and Magglio Ordonez.  All cards sent were for my UD project.  This week I got two of them back!

Mark Buehrle - 1/1
Jon Garland - 1/1


I am planning on sending another small batch of TTM requests later this week.  At the very least I will be sending to D.J. Carrasco, Dustin Hermanson, Don Johnson, Billy Pierce, Cliff Politte, & Bob Wilson.

When I began my various projects, I knew some players would be very tough.  In some cases, those tough players had MANY cards in the different sets I was attempting to complete.  One of those players is Scott Podsednik.

If you've ever tried graphing Scotty Pods in person, you know what I'm talking about.  He isn't the nicest guy.  Of course, he has 4 different Upper Deck cards in a Sox uniform, not to mention Allen & Ginter cards.  I also needed him for my rookie card project.  So I fully expected most, if not all of these cards to remain unsigned for quite a while.

Well, when Scott signed a minor league deal with the Phillies, I immediately contacted every grapher I know in Lehigh Valley, where their AAA team plays.  I was able to strike consigment deals with three of them, for a total of 10 cards.  I sent 2 of each Upper Deck card I needed, as well as an 06 A&G and a 01 Donruss Class of 2001 rookie card.  I doubled up on the UD cards as I was fairly certain each guy would be lucky to get one card done, and wanted to increase my chances of getting the UD stuff completed.

Well, lo and behold!  Nine of the cards have been sent back signed.  Not only are all of the UD cards done... I now have doubles of 3 of the 4!

Here are the six different Podsedniks in all of their glory!

I recently picked up 3 nice on-card certified autographs.  One absolutely gorgeous Gordon Beckham, and a couple of nice Magglio Ordonez autos.

I have updated the team set checklist portion of the site with all 2011 releases, including Bowman and Topps Pro Debut.  These are enhanced checklists, with scans of every single card.  I will be adding the checklist for 2011 Topps Series 2 some time next week.  Here is are examples of the new additions:
