My Official Diamondbacks Collection Post

I've created this post in an effort to keep better track of my Diamondbacks autograph collection.

The other day I stumbled on the D-Backs all-time roster on I exported the list into Excel and tried to figure out how many players I had autographs from. While doing so, I had an idea. Why not turn it into an ongoing blog post?

The purpose of this is to see how many former and current D-Backs players we have autographs from on a baseball card featuring them in a D-Backs baseball card. Kind of like Ryan's Great Orioles Autograph Project but on a much smaller scale.

I've outlined a few rules to go along with our new project.

In order to make it onto this list, I have to have posted the card on the blog already. Expect a steady flow of D-Backs posts while I try to get caught up. 

If it's not a D-Backs card, it's not part of this collection. There's a ton of guys who played in Arizona who didn't get a card featuring them on the Diamondbacks. That's a shame but that means they won't be included in this project.

Non-2008 Topps cards take precedence over 2008 Topps cards for this project. Actually I haven't added any 08 Topps stuff to this list yet.

Cards signed in person take precedence over certified autos.

I'll make updates as we post new cards. Enjoy!

  1. Very cool idea! Can't wait to see more!

  2. If you email me a list of guys who played for the team but don't have a card, I'll see what I can do custom-wise for you.
