    I don't get bored often, but am pretty bored right now. So I'm bumping this to the top in hopes that someone will magically post some rare Robbie cards! Still hoping to land some from my top wantlist below.

    Also I picked up this beauty recently. I have a couple other nice ones coming in the mail, plus one that got lost in the mail , but otherwise I agree with some other guys on other threads that it's been kinda dry out there lately.

    Appreciate the post. I haven't gotten to the point of picking up graded RC's yet, but hopefully someone will hit you up for those.

    What would compel someone to generate this ebay listing? Can anyone here even attempt to explain?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Roberto-Alom...EAAOSw-F5Zd2EQ

    It's a 1995 Score Alomar common card, listed at $10,000. Now and then I see morons trying to sell ordinary cards for big bucks, but I think that's mostly people who don't know anything and just think all baseball cards must be valuable. This one is something else that not even a "special kind of stupid" can explain. It isn't exactly important, I'm just curious if anyone even has a theory.

    Not typically a card that has a comma in it's price. I've seen a Wakefield common listed for a grand once and thought the same thing, my best guess is they know and are just hoping someone doesn't know what they are doing

    That's one of the most well put understatements I've heard in a while!

    Sunday night and time to indulge in wasting time with my PC. The influx of cards is slowing down as my wantlist gets more expensive...but still making slow and steady progress and am now over 3700 unique for this PC. Thought I would post some semi-interesting new pickups.

    This is a fun one - a promo mailer for the 1997 SP set. I have a few promo pieces with pics of Alomar cards on them, but this one is unique because it shows a card that was never made. Alomar and Jones didn't end up being included in the Marquee Matchups set. @Fandruw25

    Nothing too flashy here, but surprisingly hard to find. I had never seen the 1998 Pinnacle Inside Diamond Edition until two appeared on the same day. One was on ebay and I ended up with it as the only bidder for $20. The other was on COMC and was overpriced (shockingly). The other is 2004 Donruss Classics Auto. There's the red/10, green/5, and platinum/1. Glad to have the red example since I probably won't ever find the others.

    Also got a fun run completed the other day. Thanks to @Tfangman for an awesome hookup. A while ago I posted asking if anyone had rare Alomar stuff, and he PM'd me to say a local card shop had a few. Sure enough one of them was on my list - the 2001 Donruss season stat line. Surprisingly hard to find for a /40 card. Thanks Tim! I bought the second-to last one from @clarkfan, the 2002 Chicago Sun Times show stamp/5. I like those show stamped cards, but can back off a little since I think I now have one example from all the early 2000's shows where DLP did this promotion.

    Finally some promos from a set I really like, for unexplainable reasons - 2003 Playoff Portraits. This set had 5 promos and I found #4 recently. This SAMPLE card took FOREVER to arrive, and I had given up on it. I was about as bummed as you can get over a $3 card, but finally the USPS came through. As far as I know these promos were:

    Blank Back (top left) - mailed to dealers
    Red (top right) - given out at 2003 Atlantic City National show
    SAMPLE (bottom left) - inserts inside Beckett magazines
    PROMO (bottom right) - came with Absolute Memorabilia boxes
    Green (missing) - given out at Chicago Fanfest

    Hi banjar, I'm mostly a basketball/football guy but my baseball PC is Roberto Alomar. That said, since I have a few collections, I pretty much only collect Alomar PSA/BGS RCs and relic/autograph cards and a few others I just like the look of. There are too many regular base/oddball variants for me to track down every card.

    I like your collection and writeups about some of the oddballs you've found though. Unfortunately don't have anything on your wantlist. However, if you know the whereabouts of a McDonald's 1992 autograph or another one of those super rare Barry Colla autographs, I'd love to know about them and buy them. Or if you have any other relic/autograph duplicates that you're willing sell, I'd be interested. Keep up the collection and the great posts!

    Howdy! Somehow I missed this post until now. Welcome to the board and thanks for the kind words.

    There's actually over 2000 known cards I'm still missing, so I would love to see what you have for sale/trade. On my end, I have a good number of duplicates, although few if any GU/Auto cards. Might still have something you're interested in though. We should compare notes...

    The ebay seller I bought the 1992 Colla Auto from was ebbetsfieldboy. I think I saw him post another copy a few months ago, but I don't see that listing up right now. Probably worth emailing him to see if there's any left.

    I've seen a few 1992 McDonald's Autos crop up on ebay from various sellers after I bought mine from that pawn shop in Toronto, but again none currently listed. I think they were mostly in the $150 range, although one went for something like $50 at auction...so keep your eyes open for more.

    Thanks for the notes on the 1992 cards. I've been keeping an eye out but there isn't much out there.

    Unfortunately, since I usually use ebay for the autograph/game used cards, I don't have almost any duplicates to trade or sell to you. My basketball collection is much bigger and usually focus my attention there - even then rare to have dupes unless I screw up and buy a second one by accident lol. I did buy a couple lots of Alomar cards a few years ago that had standard base cards that I could search through for some variants if there are any you're looking for. I live in Toronto and may have to check into some pawn shops although I've never been to one and they seem a bit intimidating haha.

    Anyways, even if we can't get a trade or anything going, it's always nice to talk to someone with the same PC.

    Coolio. Keep in touch, and lots of luck with the card searches. And post some scans of cool cards as you get them, or show off some already in the collection? I'd love to see some of the stuff you have picked up.
