Hello fellow collectors, my name is Chris. This site is dedicated to displaying my Roy Oswalt collection.
I've collected Oswalt for over ten years, amassing 1,600 uniquely different cards. Put simply, this is
the greatest resource for collectors of Roy Oswalt. Please use the contact form in the footer to inquire about anything.
I also collect Tim Hudson and Jordan Zimmermann. The collection
is updated often, with highlights listed below.
What about the numbers?
Intrigued by the statistics above? They are the number of uniquely different cards in each category.
Hover over or click each category to see the individual completion statistics.
How did I estimate such lavish ratios? Beckett is the first step. Then I eliminate the cards I presume
undesirable: minor league issues, show stamped and numbered (such as Hawaii or Chicago), and certain
aftermarket cards. Each page contains high quality scans.

Card Additions & Site Updates
It's been awhile since my last update, but I will be adding over 50 new cards soon.
The 2003 Leaf Certified Materials Mirror Emerald 5/5 is the stand out card.
Over 40 new cards have been added in the last week, including my first GU button.
The other highlights are two 2004 SP Chirography Zito/Halladay triple autos.
There are many new autographs and patches to be added, which will get me close to 1,600 different cards.
My first superfractor autograph has been added, which is the 10th overall super.
This is my 3rd 1/1 autograph from 2017.
After a bit of a COMC binge, I have acquired card #1,500! Among the prominent cards in the updates today were:
another 2005 Zenith Epix. I am now 21/24 for the completion of the set. The 2010 Topps Finest Red Refractor
pushes me over 120 different refractors overall. For the 1,500th card: my first logoman 1/1.
I have reached the second big milestone of 2017: card #1,400! Several new scans of superfractors were added as well.
A few pages have been updated for better usability. Now it's much easier to scroll through a page, or just jump to a specific
year. Also, over 50 new cards have been added since the last update. I'm now 102 cards away from
1,500! The game used category now includes cards from 2012. All totals have been adjusted to include
7 new cards.
After roughly 14 years of collecting Oswalt, I've hit over 1,300 cards. The large category of base, inserts, and parallels
has also hit over 1,000 cards. It has been a labor of love to amass so many cards. The next goal
is reach to the prestigious 1,500 club.
My new scanner is here, specifically the Canoscan 9000F Mark 2. The quality is fantastic. See it in action for my 30th 1/1
from 2005 Reflections.
The domain for this site has finally been transferred! I will no longer be updating the old site. I've continued to make
improvements to some old code. New cards will also be added soon.
I've added 12 new base and parallels. This brings that section up to over 50% completion, making it the second to reach that
I've made many style improvements and bug fixes recently. I'm adding a new page featuring all cards in
one giant list. Additionally, there will be around 80 new cards added soon, bringing the total to
over 1,300! The majority are parallels, but I was able to acquire some game used.
It's been awhile, but I'm back!
This is the first blog posting for the new site. Recently, I decided to do away with Weebly for hosting.
I highly recommend
Github Pages for free hosting.
This site is a work in progress, so some aspects will not be perfect. However, I'm working daily
to get things in order. In the footer you will find a contact form.
Coming soon will be a redesigned site for my Roy Oswalt collection. I will also be adding information
on my appraisal service and galleries for my investment cards. Please be patient during the transition.
