The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Jerry and Newman. We all have our rivals in this life and I did not know of mine until I met a “super collector” by the name of Bryan. I once bragged to collectors about my 1,000+ (730 different) Jose Canseco cards, Bryan quietly showed off his 2,432 in the pages of Beckett Monthly. I once spent over $50 on a lot of cards on eBay a few years back, his collection’s book value is pushing $20,000. I received my first game-used Canseco card in 2006, Bryan currently has 353. I lost a dramatic eBay auction two weeks ago in an attempt to win my very first Jose Canseco autograph, he has 264.
As a fellow Jose Canseco collector (18 years) it is hard for me to not be green with envy but you just can’t hate on a guy who has stuck with his player through thick and thin and is a major supporter of Wax Heaven to boot. Along with his amazing Canseco collection, in a couple of months Bryan might have an opportunity to not only meet his childhood idol, but maybe even possibly work with him. It would take years to scan Bryan’s entire collection so instead, he has put together an amazing DVD, with a score and everything. It’s a little long so I imagine only Jose fans will stick through the entire presentation. If you do, you are in for a treat!
Ladies and gentlemen, Wax TV presents to you, the greatest Jose Canseco baseball card collection of all-time, brought to you exclusively by Wax Heaven.
