Awesome idea. Ever heard of the guy who started off with a single paper clip and eventually traded for a house?

Yes, I read that article many years ago. That's when I thought to do it with baseball cards. I didn't want to go too big like he did. Something simple and possible. To duplicate him would take years....I don't have that much patience

Good luck sir! I've just subscribed to this thread, and will be watching closely. I've always wanted to do something like this, but haven't. You're doing it, so I'm going to live vicariously through you!

Not to hijack your thread but to show you what I have done so far.


I have been working on turning $500.00 into a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle by the next national and you might like the read OP. You will see where I got the five hundren in the link.

I must warn you that one of the cards right now in inventory is the 1989 UD Ken Griffey Jr. PSA GEM MINT 10.

Collectors Universe Forums - The quest to EARN a Mickey Mantle 1952 Topps by the National. Transaction #51 Michael Jordan Rookies + need your opinion

Thanks guys for the kind words. It's becoming a challenge! I'll get thru it tho!


Brady, you are the reason i started my quest! I am on CUF and have followed your blog. It's great! Job well done so far! I have wanted to do this for so long, and you gave me motivation to try something like this!


And yes. I know all about that Griffey card. I'm NOT happy about it
