    Cal Ripkin is a classic. 688 items on eBay right now.

    Vladimir Guerrero gets butchered in so many ways. Vladimer, Guerrerro, and so many more.

    Everyone knows about fatfingers.com, right? It's fun to see what comes up for certain guys, and sometimes leads to great deals.

    The * says take everything after nol
    the - says do not include

    I have a series of these and they can be hardened to provide better results.
    i knew the -omit trick but didn't know this wildcard one. thank you!

    The wildcard * trick was disabled years ago.

    I've been trying to finish my 2004 Bowman Heritage Mahogany set since it came out. Have a saved search for Mahogany, Mohogany, Mahogony that all worked 15 years ago, now most posting them know how to spell.
