The 2002 Elite Status Bert Snow puts me one away from the 11-card team set, just missing Jermaine Dye. 2004 Donruss Season Stat like Mark Ellis 02/78 puts me 2 away from that 16-card team set, missing Eric Byrnes and Keith Foulke. Still missing a lot from 1998 Bowman Chrome Golden Anniversary but the Tejada 42/50 is a nice pickup. And Piatt 17/99 puts me three away from the big 20-card team set of 2000 Bowman Gold, the most notable one I'm missing is Mark Mulder.
I finally received tracking info for my COMC order from December, so I should have a really enormous mailday tomorrow or Thursday. I'll refrain from scanning all thousand cards.

Rose and Flores, two brief Dodgers who were tough to find autos for as well. Do you have one or both?Today's mail:

Some shiny gold 2002-2005 Leaf stuff, all /25. Not too worried about the corner ding on the Jeremy Giambi, those 2002 Mirrors will get corner damage if they are in a 1 mph breeze.

Spiezio brings my 2007 Reserve Collection needs down to 4 - two commons plus and McGwire and a Canseco, yikes. Two more knocked off my Ginter Mini Black wantlist. Venditte brings my 2015 Topps Black needs down to 3. And the Mike Rose 2005 UD First Pitch card was unbelievably hard to find, so happy to have that done with. Now if I could only find a 2002 UD Victory Jose Flores.

I saw a beautiful Koufax at a show about two months ago for about $200. I shoulda just grabbed it but didn't and have regretted it since.This is one of the crazy Donruss buyout/bankruptcy era sets that I just love. 17 of the 18 players included in this set are Hall of Famers with Don Mattingly the only one that isn’t currently…jefffryecollection.wordpress.com
Here is the full collection so far. The Koufaxs are at the top end of my normal monthly buying range so it may be a while until it is complete unless another couple examples sell for <$200 like the ones I missed a few months ago. Either way I'll keep hammering away at it.
I'm going off the assumption that there are unnumbered replacement copies for all the cards floating around out there but I'm not chasing the craziness involved there. I'll be happy just to add those as I find them, if I find them. I'm just going to worry about the easily verifiable packed out and backdoored copies.
