Heavenly Collections – Mark Grace

Brad (ebay ID: gracecollector) is a lifelong Cubs fan whose license plates read ‘CUBSGUY’. It’s no wonder that Mark Grace is the player nearest and dearest to his heart. Grace came up through the Cubs minor leagues, and played 13 memorable seasons in the Friendly Confines. Brad, who started collecting in 1980 at age 8, admired the way Mark played the game with hustle and hard work to overcome his lack of physical talents. Collecting Grace since 1990, Brad’s collection now numbers over 2,400 cards, including over 250 game used, 180 autographs, and 40 1/1 cards! Most amazingly, he’s scanned every card in his collection and created the Virtual Mark Grace Baseball Card Collection on his website, www.markgrace.com. It all makes for one jaw-dropping player collection!

Here’s some of his most “Graceful” cards:

  1. unreal! Did he mention how he was able to come about most of these? Such as ebay, trades, luck pulls from packs?

  2. Even though he was on the Cubs for most of his career, Mark Grace was a player that I could respect. I felt joy when he got his ring with the D’Backs.

  3. Insane collection and dedication. I dont even want to imagine how much time you have put into that website.
