The Tim Wallach collector is easily the most extreme player collector of whom I am aware. He seems obsessed even by player collector standards. I visit his webpage somewhat frequently and even sent cards to him on two occasions now. But I find tips on his site for my own collection. On one of his posts he linked to a site for buying minor league singles which he used to get cards of Wallach as a minor league manager. I contacted the business through the site and eventually worked out a deal for the two Alomars he had that I needed.
2. 2007 New Orleans Zephyrs Multi-Ad. This was the big one though as it was #4 on my Top 10 Most Wanted. I was wondering if I would ever be able to find it. This was the reason I set something up with Dave at the website. There are no New York Mets cards of Alomar out there of which I am aware. However, he has the New Orleans Zephyrs card that is his last card from his active playing career. I love the shot too of the aged catcher wearing his equipment. He played 45 games with the Zephyrs in 2007 with some decent hitting numbers.
