Hello fellow collectors, my name is Chris. This site is dedicated to displaying my Roy Oswalt collection.
I've collected Oswalt for almost 20 years, amassing
different cards. Put simply, this is
the greatest resource for collectors of Roy Oswalt baseball cards. Please use the
contact form in the footer to inquire about anything. The collection
is updated often, with recently added cards and highlights listed
What about the numbers?
Intrigued by the stats above? They're the number of different cards in each category.
Hover over or tap each category to see the individual completion stats.
How did I estimate such lavish ratios? Beckett is the first step. Then I eliminate the cards I presume
undesirable: oversized, minor league issues, show stamped (such as Hawaii or Chicago), and
certain aftermarket cards. All pages have high quality images.
I've made dozens of small style changes recently. Also, lots of new scans.
Only 18 cards needed for 2200 total.
Beyond that, hitting each hundreds mark (2300, 2400, etc.) will be slow.
Unless I acquire a large PC from another collector, hitting 3000 might take several years.
My 50th 1/1 has arrived, which is my 11th Superfractor. It's from the only set in 2020 to feature Oswalt.
I went on a classic card scan frenzy over the weekend.
The majority of my cards don't have images, mainly because my scanning process is time intensive.
Look for lots of new images this month.
Card #2,000 has been added! I have some fun ideas and a new page coming soon.
The 1,800 different cards mark has been reached! Beyond that, I have made big changes to every page.
The lightbox gallery for my images has been upgraded, and it is now available on every page.
I've been holding onto a large stash of cards for the last few months.
These include several 1/1s, my most wanted auto (2003 LCM Emerald Auto), and several patches.
At the end of all this cataloging, I will reach over 1,800 cards.
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
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
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,
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
on my appraisal service and galleries for my investment cards. Please be patient during the transition.
