My second biggest focus for my baseball collection (behind completing some long overdue sets) has been building my All-Star Collection. I've been trying to fill a box with at least one card of any player who ever received All-Star honors. A related project has been to complete a Frankenset of only players who were All-Stars. This group of cards will fit one of those two projects.
Same for these cards.
And these. And after seeing all of these images of former All-Stars, are there any that surprise you? Or that you forgot about? There are some pretty great cards here, but it's hard to beat the 1982 Reggie Smith as my favorite.
This final group is a hodge-podge of different collection hits. Juan Marichal for my All-Star MVPs collection; Kyle Seager and Dean Palmer for the All-Star projects; Joe Black and Tommy Agee for the Rookie of the Year binders; a multi-player Cubs card; and Jeremy Guthrie, former BYU Cougar.
The pictures may be all mixed up, but recent traders who get credit for these new acquisitions are the following TCDB users:
