Glad to help [MENTION=17815]RedsFan11[/MENTION] Thanks for looking out for the Burks I need!
Collecting Ellis Burks cards since 1987.
Need these 7 cards to finish my Jim Thome set:
16, 17, 22, 24, 52, 63, 90
Thanks for looking!
Wow $404! That's crazy. The other box is at $234 with a day and a half to go. How high will it go?
Considering boxes have sold a few times at near-$500, $404 isn't ridiculous with the market. There's just no chance most of us are willing to do even half that.

This post is a couple weeks after the fact (my cpu went down), but I had to share some amazing tek movement now that I'm back online.
We all know [MENTION=8009]rinkrat38[/MENTION] is one of the biggest tek guys around, he needs no intro. We have been going back and forth for years about tek cards and for God knows how long both of us were one card away from finishing the McGwire pre-production run. For those that don't know there are 3 players that have blue pre-production cards. There are 30 of each (skip numbered to 90). I have never seen a single complete set of any of the three players. On top of these there are the gold pre-productions which have an unknown production run to them but are even more rare than the blue counterparts (which are extremely hard to find as well).
Well Rich finally found the pattern he needed (p89) and sent me a PM about how excited he was, then a couple minutes later after doing inventory realized that he was missing p2 still because he had the gold, not the blue. I intermediately put my p2 in the mail and sent it to him so he could finish the set because how cool is that, that he finished the run right?
About a half day later he messages me again and says he found the p2 and once he received the p89 in the mail, he would have the set.
Well off went my p2, and of course when Rich got it, he not only sent it back, he did something ridiculous...
He gave me both of his gold pre-prodcution copies of McGwire along with it putting me only 8 away from completing that set...
Are you kidding me?
Rich you are awesome, again, I cannot thank you enough.
Also congratulations on being the first person I know of to complete that virtually impossible run!!
