Over the years, I have accumulated so much junk. A good portion of it including most of my Starting Lineups and any figures were traded off. I also had a bunch of autographed items I was just looking to downsize with and traded half of those off as well. I still have some to go in that area.
Most of the items I acquired over the years were from purchases in online catalogs, local outlets, department stores, gifts from family, and from a few contests I won. I originally really wanted these items, but as time has gone on and I have gotten older and what feels as my house getting smaller, I decided it was time just to collect cards now. No more adding those markdown McFarlane figures just for the fun of it.
There are some pieces however, I plan on keeping forever. These pieces I will showcase on here.
About 13 years ago, I took all of my Starting Lineup/McFarlane figures over to the closest card shop I had at the time-it was only an hour away but closed a year later after my visit-and traded them off to the shop owner who was selling figures better than cards. I was just happy to lose bulk in my house and I added some pretty sweet cards including a Joe Montana rookie!
A few years after that, my father handed me his two Starting Lineups he had displayed on the wall for years. Normally, I wouldn't be happy about adding more bulk, but, being that these were NY Giant legends, I was okay accepting them.
Up first was this LT. This guy was a game changer. Not something the Giants have had in a linebacker in years and years.
I am actually seeking out the Rodney Hampton Starting Lineups for my PC. That's only because I want it to be a Super PC and feel in order to do that I need it to be jacked up in all ways. I used to think I super collected Ken Griffey Jr and had all of his figures at one point, but I ditched them all in that trade to the shop owner. There was no way I was ever going to get all of his cards. Hampton I have a chance at!
How many of you still collect Starting Lineups or use them as apart of your Super PC collection?
