I've always had a soft spot for retro sets, especially those designs from my childhood. And yet I would never even think about collecting logo-less retro sets if it wasn't for being a team set (or player) collector. But I will say, I really do like what Panini did with what they have to work with. Now I just need the Kyle Seager card from this set.
It's awfully tough to hate on cards like this Griffey. Why, the way it's framed, it could very well be a licensed card and you'd never know it. More stuff like this would go a long ways in winning over even the most stubborn collector.
And we will end it today with this Fernando Rodney card. I'm probably in the minority in saying that I don't mind sticker autos, but the off-colors and prison-softball team hat just don't do anything for me. And yet I still purchased it, albeit for 99 cents.
I guess I will buy just about anything.
