This was definitely the year of the Sandy Alomar Jr. collection. I came into the year with about 200 or so cards, and I will exit the year with nearly 900. I have added a number of higher-end cards that I was excited about. It has been a great year for this collection. It is unlikely that there will be another quite like it.
There is not much point to doing a bunch of different categories. This is the first year of the blog. But I will show off one card, my Card of the Year, which is my single favorite card in my Alomar collection, and my favorite card I have gotten this year, no matter the player:
CARD OF THE YEAR:
2005 Topps Rookie Cup Original Relics
The Alomar collection and blog have become the centers of my collection to this point. Unfortunately the cards I still need are going to become more difficult to find, making the likelihood of this blog being as busy as it has been this year, fairly slim.
