Griffey base card project : help needed

Kids, I need help.

The good thing about the month of May here in France is that we get a ton of holidays. May 1st is Labor day, on the 8th we celebrate the end of WW2, today has something to do with Jesus and so does May 25th (well, with the Holy spirit this time). We're such a catholic nation...Though it means that the country comes to a halt (we also get 5 weeks paid vacation per year, and they're good from May of one year to May of the other year, so a lot of people use their remaining ones right now), it also means I have more time to sort through my cards.

And it's precisely what I did with my Griffey cards. I don't have that many to start with (around 300 or 400), but I'd definitely like to focus on base cards. Inserts and parallels and subsets are really (really) cool, but one step at a time.

So just in case you have some collecting dust somewhere, here's what I need :

Allen & Ginter : 2006/2007/2008/2010
Archives : 2012
Bowman : I only have 1990 & 2010
Donruss : 95 / 97 / 2001/2003

  1. Oh. If only there was a Junior mega collector in the blogsphere.... Someone so caught up in the player that his collection and obsession is almost like a drug addiction. A super heavy..... Griffey Hoarder! No, that's not a good name. Maybe the Kid Kollector? Better, but doesn't have that ring to it. Need something that sounds like a driven narcotics user. Ken Griffey, J.....

    I got nothing.

    1. hehe yeah, my first impulse was to reach out to my man from NO, writing him a heartfelt email about a poor French guy left alone and cardless in the middle of nowhere. But I didn't want him to send me cards out of pity.

  2. Um, yeah. I got you, bro. I almost certainly have most of these in duplicate.

    Prepare ye some binder space!

  3. By the way, do you have any idea how excited I get when another blogger uses a Griffey as the cover photo in a post? Like, really excited.

    1. I should've picked 95 UD to make you even more....hum...excited. What was I thinking ?

  4. I can help with your Gold Glovers list once I'm settled into my new place. Moving in a week. Enjoy your holiday time! I look forward to the day I can sort and organize my cards, hopefully will have lots of time with the long MI winters ahead.

  5. I just sent you the vast majority of your list. Unfortunately I forgot to count them, so I can't update my Griffey totals. Do me a favor and count the Griffeys I sent you and email me that number so I can update my numbers!
