    That Elimination is great! I've never seen a Thomas...nice, nice find! I do have the Onyx 35/99 though.

    From the late '90s, the 1999 Prism Retail Red is killing me similarly.

    I also need the Juan Red. Only 2 Juan collectors have it.

    I got the #/100 Game Ball with the amazing lettering on it way back in 2000, it was the first 'big' RJ card I ever bought where I spent a good amount of money (for a 16 year old).

    The #/25 Auto version I just got in today, it's the first one I've seen in the past 4 years, and I have absolutely no recollection of seeing one back in 2000-2004.

    I just love the layout on these cards with the thin lines and small details, quintessential early 2000s UD design.

    ^^ Awesome stuff! Nice Juans, Bernies, Clemens and RJs.

    The 2000 GOTG set served as the catalyst that got me collecting again. I was at the local mall back in 2001 and came across a card table selling the 2000 Greats of the Game base cards. I paid $5 for the Mattingly base, wishing I could land the autographed version some day. That was the only card I would buy for a long time until I started collecting seriously in 2003. One of the first things I did when I caught the collecting bug was buy the 2000 GOTG complete set.

    All these years later, I finally bit the bullet. Yes, it's expensive for a Mattingly auto, but it's a short-print of a now classic set.

    The gold is awesome with the printing on the glove swatch. May have overpaid for that one a bit, but figured I may never see another
    The autograph if my memory serves me correctly is an SP

    More Burbank fun for me today. Found a few Helton's that fit my collection nicely:

    $6, serial #001/250:


    $5, serial #250/250:


    $12:


    $15:


    The 001/250 and 250/250 weren't listed in the titles, was only able to find them by clicking on the actual auctions and looking @ pictures. I like finding little gems like this.

    2001 Leaf Certified Mirror Gold #/25. Not a huge card, but finding any card #/25 from 17 years ago is just plain tough. And the only nice 90s/00s insert I've added in ages.

    A little heads up on 2000 Stadium Club Diamond Pearls. The ink? on the top layer will stick to the inside of penny sleeves. ALSO, the entire top layer easily delaminates from the pearly stock.

    So, be careful how you store them, and don’t pay extra for a blank front proof.

    Does it only stick if there is pressure on the card? I try not to pack my cards in too tightly for just that reason...even without penny sleeves. I cringe when I hear that “crackle” of cards separating.
