This card is one of the ones that has been in my collection the longest. It has survived a couple of purges.
I thought about it a little bit ago and came to the realization I've always been a player collector, going to the the genesis of my collecting. In 1987, I wanted every Dale Murphy card. After that it was Will Clark. I can probably name a dozen other players I've collected hardcore over time.
I was really into NASCAR in the mid-1990s until the early-2000s and Jeremy Mayfield was my guy. The time finally came that I was "over" NASCAR and I went ahead and sold off the Mayfield collection that I had. I did keep this one. There were many autographs but this was the one I kept since it also had a Rusty Wallace autograph. It was also probably one of the two or three cards I paid the most for. I knew I wasn't going to get my money back for it, so it stayed.
I also purged a lot of card in the mid-2000s. This one survived that purge as well. I wish that the vintage football singles, 1955 Topps All American Football, 1971 Topps Baseball and the 2001 and 2002 Topps Heritage sets that I had made good progress on has survived it. Regerts.
