I will try to get a few pics added so you guys can see my basement. I do like it a lot. Funny thing is, the hardest ones for me to get are the new ones. They have so many different variations, and there is no way I can get to that many games. They have no real value, and most people throw them away. I find them for sale on occasion, and I always buy the ones I need. (don't let that secret out of the bag though, or they will start charging me more). I have a complete collection from 1921 through 2012. I am only missing one from 1998, 1 from 2000, 1 from 2008, and about 4 or 5 from 2011. 2011 was a bad year for me personaly, and I may have missed my oportunity. I have only seen 2 Cub scorecards for sale from the 19teens, and I simply couldn't aford to buiy them. Had I known then what I know now I would have bought them. My autographed ones that I am proudest of are 1929 with Hack Wilson ( his big year), 1938 homer in the gloaming game, and several different 38 games with his auto ( Gabby), several Santo autos, one on his first game ever played at Wrigley, lots of Banks, but nothing specific. I also have scorecards from the Sandberg game , hooten no hitter, Kery's 20 ks,The black cat game in New york, etc. etc. I know I am crazy, but I guess somebody has to be the crazy Cub Fan!!!
