One of the biggest questions I get as a collector and as a part-time dealer is: What do you collect? Well, that’s an easy and sometimes difficult question to answer. So, with this column I intend to periodically “show off” some of my favorite cards in my collection.
The first card I’m going to share with everyone is a 2003 Donruss Team Heroes John Candelaria autograph #d 59/100. The interesting part of this card is without a doubt the autograph as Candelaria signed it “Candyman,” which was a nickname of his throughout his career due to the pronounciation of his last name. While this card holds no significant book or selling value, it will always be a permanent part of my collection because I’m a Pittsburgh Pirates fan and I love quirky cards, as well.
(I hate sticker autographs but this is one time that I will make an exception.)
