My Ryne Sandberg Rookie Card Collection

Being born in 1975 meant that I was 8 years old when Ryne Sandberg was a Chicago Cubs rookie.  Living in Upper Michigan, we got WGN on our TV so coming home from school each day, I was able to find a Cubs home game most of the time.  Along with Mark Grace, Ryno would be my favorite baseball players to this day.

Recently I decided I would assemble a PSA 10 collection of his rookie cards.  Previous to this, all I had was a low grade Topps rookie, which still needs to be upgraded. I am a huge fan of oddball cards, so the stickers, the Red Lobster and the All Star insert are a few of my favorites.

I will likely be chasing down the Donruss next, then upgrade the Topps rookie.  I hope you enjoy this Ryno eye candy!
