Pat Neshek on baseball cards

Pat Neshek came up with the Twins in 2006 and had a breakout season the following year, going 7-2 with a 2.94 ERA in 74 appearances. Injuries limited him after that but he bounced back in 2011 with the Padres, going 1-1 with a 4.01 ERA in 25 games. He is an avid collector who has most of his autograph collection posted on his own site, On the Road with Pat Neshek. It also has some of his stories about his own cards. He kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"Favorite card is a 2007 Topps Heritage short print, I opened 36 boxes & never got one...had to buy it on eBay. I collect autographs (music, baseball), graded sets of 1970 topps, 68, 74 & 85. Also graded Garbage Pail Kids cards. Also collect single signed HOF baseball collection - 125 different guys, ttm & in person baseball/hockey autographs, and other historical autographs."

Thanks! Here is a Neshek card I have, from 2007 Upper Deck.
