I've been working on my State of the Collection address. It's coming along I figure I'll roll it into my New Years Collecting Resolution. But one of my new goals is to start a nice modern HOF rookie collection.
As a Robin Yount and Rollie Fingers collector I've got 2 HOF rookies already. I'm still looking for that perfect opportunity for my Reggie Jackson rookie. My local LCS has a fairly decent one for 95 bucks so I'm hoping to get it for much less online. And I have lots of future HOFer Frank Thomas.
That being said I figure I'd look around ebay and see if I could find a rookie from this years inductee, Andre Dawson. Not only did I find a great looking rookie card but the auction I won came with a second year care as well, in equally good shape.
Look at the size of the Rookie Cup, its huge!!
I've always been a fan of the Hawk. I remember him better from his days in Chicago. I have to say that if you can get a Dawson auto there great.
Brian over at 30 year old cardboard has some great examples of his auto in his Ultimate Dawson collection.
I picked this card up about 5 years ago and have to say behind Yount and Fingers one of the nicest autos out there.
I love all the swoops and loops. So clean. If I remember I think this is numbered to 50 as well.
