The Beatles Honor Roll





   My girlfriend wife loves The Beatles, and I love my girlfriend wife. She is a life long White Sox fan (I forgive her.), and a walking encyclopedia of baseball knowledge. She has no interest in collecting baseball cards, but The Beatles and John Lennon in particular, are card subjects she can get into.

  I've created this post to give thanks to the card collectors who have assisted me in procuring The Beatles cards for my Love's collection. I will update this post whenever a new card has been received for her collection. I can offer baseball cards in exchange, and I keep my For Trade list updated at The Trading Card Database.



 Chris B. aka ntlwhlr  was the first to send a card. A John Lennon card no less! 1991 Pro Set SuperStars MusiCards #15a. Thank you Chris! 10 Mar 17



Billy Kingsley sent two cards. A 2011 Topps American Pie #52, and a 2013 Topps 75th Anniversary #29 (uber cool card!). Thank you for digging these up Billy! 15 Mar 17

Eric C, aka AnalogKid, sent twenty-two (22!) cards from The River Groups' 1993 The Beatles Collection. They are fabulous cards. I gave one to Zipper already, but I am saving the others for her birthday (next month). Thank you Eric! 5 July 17 



Phil C. of Trading Bases sent 4/10 Meet The Beatles insert cards from the 1996 Sports Time Beatles set. AND they arrived yesterday! What perfect timing! Thank you Phil! 11 Aug 2017

  1. Glad to be of assistance! One of my local shops had some original 60s Beatles cards, and I didn't get them. Kind of kicking myself for that now, but they sure were in rough shape. If I any come across any more, I'll keep you- and her!- in mind.

    1. Tomorrow is the big day! She will love them! I've been so impressed with Zipper's Beatles cards, that I have decided to start a Moody Blues collection. Cards are fun! :) Thanks again Eric!
