    Thank you to @onionring9 for the nice words and for the support over the last few years trying to complete this all but unknown 1998 Tek pre-production set. The clammy hands part of this was that I found the p. 89 McGwire pre-production on a COMC consignment. As usual they took their time mailing it. The package left Washington State and took a tour of most of the American League cities. Never seen so many stops on a USPS tracking sheet. After a couple of weeks of it being stuck in Dallas, I all but gave up on it. Finally got it a bit more than a month after it was first mailed. No damage, and a clearly typed accurate label. Go figure! Main thing is I got it! Still need one more Roger Clemens pattern for that set of 30 cards, pattern 6, and two more Raul Mondesi patterns, 28 and 49. I do have those two Mondesi patterns in gold but would like to get the blue variations.

    Congrats on getting down to 9! Now that you have patterns 1, 23, and 90 it should be a breeze. Good luck.

    Got in 1998 Tek diffractor pattern #3500 this week! Took me 3 1/2 years to get from #3000 to 3500. Unrealistic to think of completing this set, but might be able to get to the halfway mark!
