You may already follow this collector on YouTube, but today's article will introduce Carlos under a new persona:
The Mike Modano collector.
I started collecting in 1990. Baseball was the first sport I began with since it was my
What/Who Do You Collect?
My main collection is Mike Modano cards. I recently passed 1650 different, but another 100 or so new ones are sitting with COMC so once those come in, I should be over 1750.
Why Did You Start Collecting Mike Modano?
Modano was one of my favorites to watch in highlights, especially in that early-mid 90s
What Are Your Favourite Cards in Your Collection?
My current favorite is the 1997-98 Pinnacle Totally Certified Platinum Gold Mirror, but depending on the day it alternates with the 1997-98 UD Sixth Sense Wizard card.
What Is On Your Mike Modano Wantlist? Are There Any 'White Whales' That You'd Like To Add One Of These Years?
The ultimate white whale for me still is a (Modano) game-used Shield card. I’ve taken a few runs at them and they’ve been just out of my reach. A favorite insert I have my eyes peeled for is the 1996/97 Black Diamond Run for the Cup of Modano. That would be another of those late 90s inserts I dreamt of getting as a younger collector.

So many great cards on display, it does take a lot of time & dedication to put together a large collection like this. I was a bit surprised by the favourite cards that Carlos mentioned, I was expecting patch or auto cards. I do agree that the mid to late 90's gave us lots of cool series, and was I think, a period of great innovation in the hockey card industry.
Thanks for the comment as always, Al! I agree, the Favourite cards Carlos mentioned surprised me as well, especially when he mentioned the 90's. I thought he'd mention that sweet StarQuest Gold parallel /100 of Modano!
