I actually got very lucky with these sets and got them all at once several years ago from a big Griffey collector who was looking to sell off his entire collection! I think this set looks sick together and I'm glad that I now own it! Thanks!

Those are great, I am trying to two more letters for a non-Griffey (Travis Snider) one I am doing... harder than I thought it would be!

Yeah, I'm sure it is very tough to complete sets like these! I wish you luck in getting your set completed! Like I mentioned before I got very lucky in being able to get these three sets together from the same collector several years ago! I love the fact that Griffey signed each letter even though each letter isn't game used but that makes these affordable for collectors! Also, only having 25 of each of these sets makes them really scarce as a set so that should make the values of these sets go up in the future especially after Griffey gets into the HOF which I believe he will be eligible starting in 2016! Check out my other thread posting titled Big Griffey Collector to see my sick Griffey collection and let me know what you think of it! Thanks!

Those are amazing looking. I have always liked Griffey's autograph.

Yeah! His autograph rocks in my opinion! I think that it is the best looking auto out there compared to other athletes! Thanks for looking and check out my collection on my Photobucket site! Here is the link: Pictures by Tpm2780 - Photobucket

Your collection is awesome. I think my favorite is the Mantle/Griffey dual autograph. That has always been a favorite card of mine. I don't have one myself. I hope to branch out on my Andrus collection one day and start getting non-card items. Jerseys, bats, balls, pictures, etc. I'm just so hooked on the cards right now and I can't believe I have gotten 15 1/1's right now and I have three more coming in the mail and several more I'm watching on EBay. I just gotta get the money and then get the best price. If you have or find any Andrus cards, please let me know.

Default Awesome...

That puts my Razor Letterman name sets to shame. I can't imagine how much time and how much $ the original collector had to invest.

Truly Jealous,

Yeah, I'm sure he put quite a bit of money into those sets but they should be worth a lot more in my opinion after Griffey gets into the HOF! Thanks!

Whats even more amazing is that I only started collecting Andrus back in November, so in just over two months I have accumulated all these. The 2011 Topps Chrome Superfractor 1/1 was the card that started all the madness. Check out my photo bucket link for pictures of all my cards.

WOW! Your collection rocks! I know how addicting it can be to collect a player that you absolutely LOVE but at the same time it is sooo fun to be able to collect cards! I know that I have spent a TON of money in the past on Griffey cards but I think that they will be worth a lot more in the future after he gets into the HOF and it has been very fun for me personally!
