    I am now, and always have been, a Cincinnati Reds homer! My whole collection centers around this fact, so I thought that I would show off some of what I have.

    This is truly the pride of my collection. It was signed at a show in 2000 and has COA on the back and the fram is 20x24.

    Next is my all-time favorite player and one this years inductees to the Hall of Fame:

    GREAT auto from a class act.

    Another one of my favorites:

    And the latest $200 million man in baseball:

    Those are some nice pieces. Did you get those last 3 signed yourself?
     
  3. Awesome stuff, especially the 20x24!

    Sweet start to the thread. I like the Reds, some great players over the years. And I LOOOVE Chapman :D

    No, I wish that I had but those were bought items. I will make my way up to Cincy at least a couple more times this year and will hopefully have some luck. They say that Votto is very hard to get, he does sign everyday but only 5 per day. I went to opening day but that was CRAZY and no oner signed before or after the game.

    I love this card, he hit a walkoff homerun in the first Reds game that I ever went to!

    After watching the Reds win their 6th straight game today I decided to add some to this thread.

    First some fan favorites from the past

    The Cuban Missile GU

  10. Nice mix of old and new. The Chapman game-used looks like it is from a pair of acid-washed jeans:rofl:.

    I can not figure out where that game from because it doesn't look like their gray unis.
     
  12. It is neat, none the less. Not too many game-used cards these days are interesting because of their one-tone swatches, but it is always nice to add an interesting one to the collection. I have seen several game-used coming out of Topps products containing varying years of All-Star jerseys, but they are not noted as such and are just inserted into the basic game-used cards.
