1. 1987 Topps #20 Gary Carter

1987 Topps was the first set I collected, and I was a little league catcher, so naturally, Gary Carter was one of my non-Cubbie favorites! I've always loved the 1987 Topps Carter card!

2. 2013 Topps - Chasing The Dream Relics #CDR-JPA J.P. Arencibia

When I began collecting again around 2010-2011, I was not a "big time expensive card collector," nor am I really to this today. However, I decided to buy a hobby box of 2013 Topps, and this was the relic card I got. The other reason he's a PC guy is because he used to be married to one of the members of The Band Perry, which was one of my favorite country music acts.

3. 2017 Topps Chrome Sapphire Edition #361 Dylan Bundy

I've always been partial to the Orioles as a second-tier favorite team, and so I picked a few Orioles to have in my PC, and Dylan Bundy was a rookie who was pitching well at this time I decided to make him a PC guy. It was really between him and Kevin Gausman, but I stuck with Bundy.

4. 1986 Topps Traded #20T Jose Canseco

The Bash Brothers...I used to have that poster in my room of Canseco, McGwire and the cop car. When I was a kid, these guys were going to the World Series. That's the only way a small town Iowa kid would have even found out about the Oakland A's. The A's are also one of my second-tier favorite teams.

5. 2008 Donruss Elite Extra Edition #52 Joba Chamberlain

I put him in my PC because he was a popular pitcher when he played at Nebraska, and I lived in Omaha at the time. Even though I'm a die-hard Hawkeye fan, there was a time where Nebraska baseball was going to the College World Series and the bandwagon fans were out in Omaha!

6. 2004 Upper Deck - National Pride #USA10 Jeff Clement

This guy is a born and bread Iowa guy, so that's why he belongs in my PC.

7. 1991 Topps #103 Tim Costo

I remember when I opened packs of 1991 Topps, and they had the #1 DP cards in there...I thought that was so cool and different. Then, I came across a Hawkeye baseball guy!

8. 2010 Topps Chrome #184 Ike Davis

Ike gets in the PC because the Mets are a second-tier favorite team, and I used to play 1st base in high school. I thought he could have been the next Keith Hernandez. Oops.

9. 2013 Topps Update #US1a Matt Harvey

Matt Harvey, again a Met. He came on the scene and got to start the All Star Game when it was in NY, and he was on top of th world. It's a shame that he has had pitching struggles.

10. 2015 Panini Elite Extra Edition - USA Baseball 18U Game Jerseys #10 Cooper Johnson

Cooper is a former Ole Miss college baseball player. He recently was drafted by the Tigers. He gets in the PC because my friend's brother is the former Ole Miss AD, who is now with Texas A&M, and he's a catcher.
