Stanford Wantlist

A wantlist of Stanford Alumni. Focusing on Topps Flagship unless Topps never gave him a card in which case anything goes. I’m not against other brands, I’m just not focusing on them unless they cover something that Topps didn’t. The main reason is that I treat Topps Flagship as the “card of record” (so to speak). The other reason is that there have been so many sets—especially in the years I missed away from the hobby—that I need to keep the search parameters in check.

I’m also looking for oddball, regional, and non-english-language releases for anyone on here. I have a few of these listed but the wonderful thing about this hobby is that there’s so much to discover in oddball land.

Anything red is part of the original Topps searchlist.
Anything blue is a player who’s not represented in my binder yet.
Anything green represents a missing player/team/year combination.
Anything grey is a card which I have a reprint of.
Anything struckthrough is supposedly in transit.
Anything italicized is supposedly “on my pile” with a trading partner.

No modern Flagship cards

Sort of the opposite of the High Draft Picks crew of players who never made it to the bigs yet got cards. Some of these guys exist in minor league team sets which I haven’t researched at all. Many of the older guys show up on various pre-war cards which, while cool, are all probably outside the scope of this project both in terms of availability and affordability—though I am perfectly happy including reprints in this collection. As such this section is more for research purposes than card-acquisition purposes.

No Cards At All

A subset of the “No Modern Flagship” section listing guys who played in the majors but whose names return nothing on the Trading Card Database. I don’t count them as part of the project since there’s nothing to collect but I need to list them just the same.

Bob Reece—Montreal 1978
Harvey Shank—CA 1970
Charlie Swindells—StL 1904

Grey areas

Players who went to Stanford but never played on the team or who played on the team but ended up transferring to other schools afterwards. I’m adding them to the albums as I encounter cards (especially oddballs) but haven’t put together an explicit search list.

Bobby Brown
Shawn Greene
Bill Wakefield
Ken Williams

Completed players

While no longer part of the explicit wantlist, I’ll always interested in non-Flagship Topps cards, non-Topps cards, and especially oddball cards of these guys. The wonderful thing about oddballs is that even though I have a decent number of them listed in the searchlist there’s no way I can know about all of them.
