Brian’s Holiday Wish List

Brian Benson, one of our sales representatives, gave us his sports card wishlist for this Holiday season. One thing Brian doesn’t need is old Sabres goalie cards, as he has them scattered around his desk.

Sabres Goalies

Without further ado here is Brian’s wish list:

Baseball Picks

1984 Donruss Baseball Box – The second best product besides myself to come out in 1984.

2008 Donruss Threads Baseball – My Customers have had a lot of success with this product.

2008 UD Ball Park Collection – Lots of hits and good content in this box.

2007 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball – I was at the 2007 National Convention when the Mother Teresa card was pulled by one of our customers at our booth. What an awesome card. You can see the card and story here.

Allen and Ginter Baseball Box

1960 Topps Sandy Koufax – One of my favorite Baseball players of all time, I love the look of this card.


1980/81 Topps Basketball Wax Box – Sweet box plus Larry Bird and Magic Rookie Cards, I would be like a little kid at Christmas if I were to open one…..or maybe I would save it? Either way this is a classic product.

1972/73 Julius Erving Rookie – One of the greatest players of all time. I think this card would make a great trivia question in the sports world….how many people would guess what team Julius Erving played for when his rookie card was created?


1957 Bart Starr Rookie – Played for Lombardi, two time MVP and Super Bowl winner.

2008 Icon Football – My customers have given me a lot of good feedback about this product, and I think the Movie Letterman cards are pretty nice.


08/09 UD Series 1 Hockey – Basic Product but there is always a rush for the best Young Guns every year. I always hope my customers get the rookies they are after.

05/06 SP Game Used – Great rookie class mixed with a product I have always loved.

1984/85 O-Pee-Chee HockeySteve Yzerman, Pat LaFontaine, Dave Andreychuk, Doug Gilmour, Pat Verbeek, Cam Neely, and Chris Chelios!

O-Pee-Chee Hockey Cards

If you have any suggestions or thoughts on my wish list please leave me some feedback.

Happy Holidays!

    Brian, cool wish list. I was at the National in 2007 and saw that Mother Theresa card as well. What a neat card. Happy Holidays!

    Does he have a Grant Fuhr or Bob Sauve in his collection of sabres goalies? Anyway, I dig the 1984/85 O-Pee-Chee Hockey box. It was just about when I started to really get in to the sport and collecting. Nice list Brian.
