About The Collection

My collection of Scott Rolen cards began several years ago. I remember watching Scott play back in the early-mid 90s and admiring how he played.

After Scott made it to the Bigs is when my collection really took off. I used to save up my lunch money so I could hit up the local card shop to see how many Scott Rolen cards I could add to my collection. Back then, it was a pretty slow grind.

Fast forward several years with the internet growing in popularity, especially with auction sites like eBay and forums like FreedomCardBoard, and my collection began to take on a life of it's own. I was able to add new cards to my collection on a regular basis and my collection quickly outgrew the binder.

I have since transferred my entire collection from a binder to penny sleeves and toploaders; housed in monster boxes. They take up quite a bit of space that way, but they are still easy to look through and they have the added protection of the toploaders.

Since Scott "retired" in 2012, I have slowly been going back through the years and filling in the cards I'm missing. My goal is to obtain at least one copy of every card produced that has more than five copies. The #/1 - #/5 cards I will add to the collection as availability and funds allow.

The Rolen Collection is not affiliated with Scott Rolen or Major League Baseball in any way.
