The name is Bonds. Barry Bonds.

I'm up to 269 unique Barry Bonds cards in my collection on route to 762. I know I have a few more headed my way. The 269 includes these 4 that I found hiding in piles recently.

The 1989 Upper Deck was in my donut collection because of the photo on the back. I had set aside the Ultra card because the unique photo commemorating his 500th home run. Every once in a while you will see a player swinging a sledgehammer, as is the case with the 1996 Score card. The Naturals card was with a small stack of cards from that set Thant I had picked up at a card show at some point and I just haven't finished sorting them yet.

I know I have more coming in from The Diamond King, so that may get me up to 300. Even so, that means I will still need 450+ cards. I don't currently have a list, which makes it difficult to complete trades, but if you have any large Bonds lots and want to unload them, let me know and hopefully I can let you know which cards I need and we can make a trade.


  1. Seeing Barry wear #24 is weird. I'm so used to seeing him with #25 on his back. Btw... received your PWEs. Planning to open them up today after I get back from the farmer's market. Thanks in advance. I'll dig up some Bonds and send them your way.

  2. I am planning to get some Bonds cards out to you...when my life stops being so crazy!

  3. I have probably close to 100 Bonds cards in a Pirates uniform. Consider them yours, don't need anything in return.
