Default My Brandon Gibson (Super) Collection

I'm still in the process of scanning everything in...to this point I'm up through 2009 Playoff Contenders, that I have in hand. As I get more scanned in, I will be sure to share. I'm becoming pretty proud of this collection. Enjoy!

Pretty impressive, just about half way there. Even if there are some plates, 81 is a lot of 1/1s for a rookie to have.

Thanks...the plates are the frustrating part. He's got plates in the following sets:

2009 Bowman Chrome
2009 Bowman Chrome Rookie Autographs
2009 Bowman Sterling
2009 Press Pass Legends
2009 Press Pass SE Gridiron Graphs
2009 Topps
2009 Topps Chrome
2009 Topps Platinum
2009 Topps Platinum Rookie Autographs
2009 Upper Deck Heroes (for two different base cards; #147 & #148)
2010 Topps
2011 Topps

Which means that 52 of his 81 1/1s are plates...absolutely absurd...At least I can say I have two of the plates... -.-

And he wasn't even in every set then? I wonder for someone like Sanchez who will be in every set, how many plates he has

Don't fret about the plates... Pick them up as you see them available, but you can't consider your collection incomplete without every plate. Save your sanity and treat them as added bonuses to your collection.

Besides, it gives you something to hunt for after you get all his cards.

I collect another former WSU Cougar Jerome Harrison. I have 245 of the 280 2006 rookie cards of him, but only 1 of the 34 1/1 parallels. I do have a few plates, but just consider them unique additions to go along with the set.

Good luck!!!

I hear you on the plates...at the point, my goal is just to get everything that ISN"T a 1/1...I'm happy to be able to say that I have 14 of the 41 that are /10 or less (and not a 1/1)

Thanks to 'myblues', I finished off the nameplate today.



Now I can finally get back to work on the rest of the collection.
