    Still working on the 2003 Timeless Treasures Gold set! 100 players and only 10 cards of each player. I have 74 of the 100. 13 years and counting. Best regards, David

    Still working on...
    1941 Play Ball (need 7 cards, all big names, need to save up for this one)
    2000 Ultimate Victory Gold #/25 (I've got about 40 out of 90, and I'm not collecting rookies 91-120)
    2005 Origins Old Judge Gold #/20 (need one card: Chris Burke)
    2006 Upper Deck WBC Patch cards (no chance at finishing, it's 60 cards of 8 copies each)
    2008 Upper Deck Timelines Timeless Teams #/25 parallel (need Webb, Young, Ellsbury, Towles, and Beltran)
    2010 Upper Deck Exquisite base set
    2011 Topps Marquee Museum Gold Framed autos
    2014 National Treasures Flawless #/20 (need about 27)
    2017 Topps Silver Pack Continuity rainbow set (the 4-card pack promos that came with hobby/jumbo boxes of Topps this year, trying to get complete gold/orange/blue/green/base and whatever affordable reds and blacks come my way)

    I gave up on starting new sets in the last year or two, until I finish at least the Play Balls. But sure enough, I got sucked into the silver pack set at the start of the year. And sure enough, Topps ran that into the ground by including almost identical cards in Topps Chrome, not only making it less special but also making it very hard to search ebay for what I need.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases and Grady Sizemores I don't have

    Every damn set I'm working on is a forgotten set.

    Hell, young collectors weren't even born when Pacific stopped making football sets.

    This was such a beautiful memorabilia set with all the rare patches from the deceased/retired HOF players. Possibly one of the greatest game-used sets to ever be released.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    I never got any, I've been kicking the idea around of putting together the base set of 2001 Ultimate Collection Magic Number. Always loved the look of them. Base set is priced reasonably, parallels go crazy in some cases.

    If you do, I believe I have Larry Walker laying around.

    I'm currently working on all sweet spot single signatures. basically if there is an auto of the player in the set I want just one (preferably ball) some are bat only or glove only in certain years so I try to snag those when I can. never aim to complete because in early years mantle, cobb, Ruth and williams were included regularly.

    2001: 7 to go (- mantle, cobb, ruth)
    2002: 2 to go
    2003: 4 to go (- mantle and williams)
    2004: 3 to go
    2005: 5 to go
    2005 classic: 1
    2006: haven't tallied
    2007: haven't tallied
    2008: 9 to go
    2009: 7 to go

    I also have 2002, 03 and 04 classic started as well but haven't given much time to those sets yet. I can provide pictures if anyone's curious.
    **looking for Sweet spot, game ball and sweet sigs autos off my needs list.**

    I've been slowly rebuilding the 2001 Fleer Stitches in Time Autograph set. It's the only autograph set exclusively comprised of Negro League autographs (to the best of my knowledge). Wish they would have made more sets like it. We are rapidly reaching a time when no former Negro Leaguers are still around.

    The 2009 Ultimate Patch set is so amazing. One day, when I finish a few of my sets, I will buy a few of those.
