i usually try to avoid buying boxes in hopes to get his rarer cards but since his autos are pushing $200 a piece i figured i would take a little gamble. The boxes only sell for $25.

I jumped on the Dickey bandwagon within the last few weeks when I read the Jeff Passan article on Yahoo! (best sports article of the year IMO) about Dickey. I like players with interesting/redemption stories- Hamilton, Greinke, etc. so Dickey's story resonated with me even though I haven't gone through some of the exact things he did. I also just attempted Kilimanjaro in June so I thought that was pretty cool as well. I hope he continues to do well.

The funny thing is I remember his '97 Bowman cards when I was 12. Those late '90s Bowman sets.... ahhhh. the gold old days.

As a fan mainly- I think the only card(s) I have are from 97 Bowman when I was a kid. I'd like to get more of his cards as I like his story but I think I'll wait for the buzz to die down some to save some money.

I did not realize he was a Tulsa Driller. What year was that? I grew up in Tulsa and I have a lot of team sets.

I would have been 11, the heyday of my collecting, before taking a hiatus because of the economy and school. Unfortunately these sets are still in Tulsa with my parents, I will have to give them a call.

Off Topic- do you own a '66 Stang? my dad went through his midlife crisis a few years back and bought himself one. It was his first car back in the day.

Sweet collection. I would not leave those autos out in light though. Those UD stickers fade easy.
