    Talking White whale captured (red refractor)

    This was a card I didn't think I'd see after 2004. I never saw it for sale (could have missed) when it was issued. Glad to have it added to my Bucky Jacobsen player collection.

    155/195 79% completed

    Missing 6 non 1/1 cards... then a bunch of plates and other 1/1 stuff. Completed the 2005 Playoff Prestige AL/NL/WS parallels in 2013. Been grabbing IP signed cards I don't have including a triple signed 2001 Topps and 2001 Topps Gold.

    Thanks for looking at this + for also keeping an eye open for any Bucky cards I might need (check your junk boxes haha).

    Those cards are beautiful in person and were crackling hot at release. I was lucky enough to get the red 1/1 and red refractor 1/1 of Sean Burnett at release.

    Congrats on your pick up and I'll keep my eyes peeled for other Buckys.

    ThoseBackPages - Thanks!

    SteelBrad - yeah, this is a crappy scan. The card is pretty clean. I still need the base red 1/1.

    jszczech - Thanks and thanks for asking. A few of these are surprisingly elusive. Since he was basically a common, not all of his tougher cards get listed... so those parallels and /150 type stuff are as tough to locate as the /25 cards.

    Sweet! That's a great card to get so many years later.

    How often do you get a card you need?

    [MENTION=3754]MansGame[/MENTION] - Haha, I just shuffled your Belle cards and put them back in your storage. Without holders.

    [MENTION=3094]LWMM[/MENTION] - It sucks. Maybe 2-3 a year. My last want list item was in March and then the Red was this week.

    Of Jacobsen? That's not too bad, considering you only lack 40. I probably get the same number of Gomes cards per year (excluding recent releases), and there are theoretically 141 to choose from there. (That also doesn't include the 7 non 1/1s I'm still going for---those come every 2-3 years or so.)

    That said, it's still a whole lot of time and effort for so few cards in return.

    Yeah, the other guys are more frequent pick ups. Just got a nice Erstad button I didn't have a copy of + a few game used full Astros jerseys recently.
