Yesterday's mail was so much, I wasn't able to write about it until today! Only one trade came in yesterday, but it was a great one! When all was said and done, I added 48 new Garnett's to my collection! The member I traded with, Umpy9, is a very nice guy, and a former Garnett collector himself! He gave me a fantastic deal, and I am very grateful for that!
These are just some of the highlights:
1995- Classic Spotlight RS5
1996-97 Topps Chrome Pro Files PF15
I do this by their best RC in my opinion! (or their only RC)
So here's my list so far:
1965 Philadelphia Carl Eller. Near Mint - Mint(Member of the purple people eaters!)... one of my favorite cards
1970 Topps Tom Mack. Near Mint-Mint (11 time Pro Bowler, 5 time All NFL, 9 time All NFC)
1970 Topps Alan Page. Near Mint-Mint (Defensive and NFL MVP 1971, recorded 28 blocked kicks in his career!)
1970 Topps Lem Barney. Mint (Detroit

Today's mail only brought in one Garnett card, but it was a nice one!
2000-01 Ultimate Victory Ultimate Collection #d/100 88
This is my 816th Kevin Garnett card, which moves me up another 1/10th of a percentage point to 16.3% of all Garnett's in existence!
As always, thanks for taking a moment to follow my quest for every Garnett card in existence!
Follow or help my quest for every football hall of famer's rookie card. I only started this project about 1 month ago and have already gained a lot of ground! I will post new blogs every time I get a new HOF RC! Who knows if I will ever finish this project, the 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski looks pretty difficult as well as the 1965 Topps Joe Namath. I want these cards to be near mint and well centered at the least, with the exception of some cards.
