About this set: This collection was eight years in the making, beginning in 2002. On numerous occasions, I quit the pursuit due to my frustrations with Set Registry growing pains. Thankfully, Joe Orlando and BJ Searls and her staff at PSA worked with me to create a template of base cards for the modern player (cards post 1980) which renewed my collecting spirit. Cal Ripken Jr.’s set was the first to use this “primary set” template, now known as the “basic set” which all others would follow. I would like to thank all of the collectors and dealers who helped me put this set together, including Jim Kane, Roger Mezhibovsky, Guy Downs, 4SC, and Johnathan and Nate at OCSI. It was not as easy as it seemed… but it sure was fun! Check out my Baltimore Hall-of-Fame showcase for more great Ripken cards.
