My PC Collection (photos) :) R.A. Dickey
 
I guess this is the best time of any to show off my stuff that has taken me years to collect. Yes, years, I've been collecting R.A. for a long time now, since 1997. Now that he mowing everyone down I find its only appropriate to brag a little ;)... Enjoy! The full gallery is on photobucket [URL="http://www.photobucket.com/DickeyPC"]http://www.photobucket.com/DickeyPC[/URL]! And my PC website is in my sig! Check em both out! :)!

stang66dad 06-19-2012 02:25 AM

It was also my son's first birthday and my wife knew R.A. was pitching and decided to do this to his cake. [IMG]http://i1093.photobucket.com/albums/i440/stang66dad/DSC_0006.jpg[/IMG]
His name is Allen Ray Dickey but a lot of people like to call him AR for some reason hahahah

stang66dad 06-19-2012 08:03 AM

Thanks everyone

[QUOTE=Noahkalifungo;2844944]Crazy!! Why did you originally start collecting him back in '97?[/QUOTE]

He was the only active player in MLB that had the same last name as me. I was around 11 or 12 at the time and thought it was the coolest thing ever. I watched him through the years which you should know by now was not good, but i stuck with him. I moved to the city and started working for the Mets in 2009 and what do ya know... They pick him up in 2010. I was so excited and everybody in the office was like 'what is the big deal' haha i remember telling people his story in the pantry and everybody was like 'and we picked him up, why?'

danimal875 06-19-2012 08:10 AM

wow, great story, I will keep my eyes out for more rarities for you!

stang66dad 06-19-2012 08:27 AM

Thanks man! Hope you find something haha :)!

Bigdig9803 06-19-2012 09:06 AM

that is so great...I'm glad you are still going to collect him, and not just see dollar signs and unload the stuff...after this season he should have more cards too so your collection might just grow a lil bigger ;)

armyatc22 06-19-2012 09:11 AM

Since 1997???? Why no 97 Bowman and Bowman chrome cards????

There's gonna be a signing at the Steiner store in the Roosevelt field mall. $30/signature and $15 for inscriptions. If you can't go but want something from your collection you can mail it to me and PayPal the 30 and I'll get it signed.

stang66dad 06-20-2012 12:38 PM

I'm good man, kind of hard for em to do those things since I work for the Mets :D

hockeykid_97 06-20-2012 12:54 PM

where did you get the giant topps card poster

stang66dad 06-20-2012 12:58 PM

Its not a poster. Its a four foot tall baseball card made from heavy duty cardboardish type material. It weighs about 25-30lbs. I bought it at Citi Field. I am waiting on the other one from last year as we speak

v-man 06-20-2012 06:15 PM

That is simply AMAZIN! Sweet collection man!
