That was a lot of work! Admittedly there were times when I never thought I would finish this update to the site. The number of images has doubled from approximately 1500 images to over 3000 images. It is so exciting that over 90% of my collection is available online, and I do not have to sort through binders or go to the safety deposit box at the bank to enjoy my collection.
I hope you enjoy all of the incredible Redskins material I added to the site. The major updates are:
- Modern Team Sets. Originally, this was conceived as a vintage card site only. I do not spend much time on material that is post-1972. However, I do have a complete run of Topps team sets from 1973-2015. The front and backs of all the modern cards have been scanned and added to the site. Now the site has team sets from 1935-2015 – a span of 80 years.
- In 2012, the Redskins added ten players to the Top 70 Redskins of All-Time list. So, now we have a Top 80 Redskins of All Time exhibit showcasing the rookie cards of everyone on the list.
- The 80 Years of Redskins Quarterbacks exhibit is now up-to-date. Hopefully, the Redskins will find their franchise quarterback soon; it has been nearly 30 years.
- Please enjoy a new exhibit: Redskins in the Hall of Fame. This features rookie and autograph cards of all of the Redskins enshrined in the Hall-of-Fame.
- Another new exhibit is online: Redskins Coaches. There are cards out there for almost every coach in Redskins history. Enjoy!
- The Before They Were Redskins exhibit is This was not too hard because the Redskins have slowed down considerably in free agency.
- I updated the Sonny Jurgensen PSA Master Set with a lot of upgraded cards.
This is a massive update to the site. It will be fairly easy to update the site going forward. The next update will probably be about 100 autograph and uniform cards. I am also sending five cards to PSA for grading.
Please let me know what you think of the updated site.
