The same people that conducted the recent Omar Vizquel signing also had one with Sandy Alomar Jr. I still needed him on an Upper Deck card, so there was no question that I would be participating. I ended up sending 3 cards. The 01 UD, his best rookie, and a cool refractor.
I’m very pleased to knock out these Upper Deck Wayne Edwards cards, as well as the Desert Shield card. Thanks Mr. Edwards!

Two more crossed off of my all-time Upper Deck wantlist. I’m a little bummed that they were signed in black, considering I paid for the autographs via PastPros. Still, I’m happy to have them. Thanks Billy!

I recently took part in another Frank Thomas private signing. I had only planned on sending in 3 cards, but then I heard a rumor that he might be raising his price soon. So I sent in as many as I could afford, which ended up being 9. They all turned out great. The 1992 Donruss Elite is definitely one of my top 5 favorite signed Thomas cards.
I am, or should I say I was, a very big fan of Upper Deck cards. They were so much nicer than plain old Topps/Donruss/Fleer. They almost had a classy feel to them. To this day, the 1993 Upper Deck set is my favorite baseball card set of all time.
I’ve put together a page showcasing every White Sox base card that Upper Deck ever made… all 531 of them! You can view that page HERE.
The only other card set I’m likely to do this for is Allen & Ginter. There will be many more checklists coming, but it is too time consuming scanning images of every single card. Most checklists will have one sample image, along with the checklist itself.
Tom Orr recently held a reasonably priced signing with Frank Thomas, and I sent in 3 cards. I received the cards last week.
I’ve decided to send in 2-3 cards for every Thomas signing that has an affordable fee for cards. Funds permitting, of course.
With the help of Jes (jeserone) on SCN, all of my Jon Garland set cards are done. Jes has helped me time and time again.
