    Talking Can it be? Finally have reached 100%

    After umpteen years of collecting - I have finally tracked down the last pack issued non 1/1 for my Travis Fryman collection. I wasn't sure I would ever get to this point, but lo and behold, I have. I'm still trying to track down other items - such as the 1998 Pinnacle Certified non-released items (see Mirror Red pickup below) and some show issued or buyback stamped items (also see below).




    I reached out to the seller who I got this from - but they never answered. I'd like to know if the Mirror Blue, the base, and the red versions are available. I have a mirror gold already that I picked up years ago.


    Here is the card that I finally tracked down. The 1998 Bowman Chrome Gold Anniversary Refractor 4/5. I know there has been scrutiny over these being possibly fakes. I can't tell you one way or another. It looks good to me. I scanned the serial numbers of this and my copy of the gold 30/50 and blew them up for a comparison. Feel free to judge for yourself.

    The buybacks are maddening, because there isn't really a checklist and WHO KNOWS if each card has all of the parallels!

    Awesome job getting to 100%. I slowly plug away at Darryl Kile, but I doubt I ever reach the end!

    Congrats on the milestone! I like how you distinguish with "pack issued,' as now that I am down to the nitty gritty (I think I have 22 left) with Manny Ramirez 90's cards I should consider differentiating between pack issued and non pack issued. You picked a heck of a card to end it off with- one of the best! Gotta update your sig!

    This is super impressive. I'm about 40 away from the same and it seems hopeless, glad to see someone got there, I honestly can't believe someone got there, it's just so ridiculously hard. How many frymans do you have including everything??
