Collectors who zero in on high grade baseball and other sports cards and have the resources to chase the best of the best are putting together some amazingly clean and rare sets.
PSA's Set Registry catalogs the progress of those exhaustive collections and the company has just unveiled its 2009 Set Registry Awards that honor the best accumulations to date.
The list includes not just company sets but also themes like Pro Football Hall of Fame rookies and others accepted into the Registry, which now includes over 4500 sets.
