I love 1999 and 2000 SkyBox Star Rubies so this 2000 Tejada 31/50 is a big pickup for me...still need three more for the team set. Swisher completes the 2005 Reflections Blue/75 team set...I also have the Red/99 and Purple/99 team sets, short 2 for the Turquoise/50 and 4 for the Emerald/25 team sets. One of my favorite sets off all time...which makes it weird I didn't already have this Red 07/99 Zito/Mulder dual jersey card from the set. The Tejada SPx Spectrum 17/50 is from 2001, and the Grieve is a 1998 Gallery Proof 123/125. The HR King Canseco is out of 2002 Fleer Triple Crown.

Damon and Byrnes leave me one short of the 2001 Bowman Chrome X-Fractor team set (missing the Ryan Ludwick RC). The 2002 Bowman Chrome X-Fractor 151/250 completes that team set, including all the Bowman Draft cards. Herrera completes the 2005 Bowman Chrome plus Draft Blue Refractor/150 team set. And the Chris Singleton is from 2003 Topps Chrome Silver Refractors, which were redemption cards so you have to jump on one if you see it.

Another new Zito auto, a Cespedes base card 27/75 out of 2013 Five Star, a cool Khris Davis parallel, and a 2015 Topps Rainbow Max Muncy RC. That one finishes up the first five years of Topps Rainbow A's parallels, 2015-2019.

These three aren't mine. They're part of a group sub I'm putting together for SGC but they are just so beautiful I couldn't help but share them.

On to my mailday

The Nomo finishes up my Samples set.

The 1968 Topps lot leaves me just Bill Freehan short of the set.

Another one for the 1998 Significant Signatures set - This is a copy of the Billy Williams auto that was redeemed for a Koufax refractor. They were stamped redeemed there on his portrait on the back and returned with the Koufax auto.

Little late to the game maybe but I've been trying to add a few more of Albert's lesser chased RCs here and there. The Fleer Premiums are numbered /1999.

Might as well add some of his hermano too

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.

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.

I was actually looking forward to seeing your COMC order. I enjoy your team set progress updates.

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

I have neither. Flores has one or two autos on eBay so I suspect I'll eventually get him, Rose only has a signed index card available currently so I'll wait for something else but that might be a long wait.

1998 Topps Stars Supernovas Bronze Ben Grieve 084/100. Already had a Gold/50 so I guess I need the Silver/75 and the elusive Gold Rainbow/5. 2005 Topps Yellow Printing Plate Ken Macha, I believe that's the first year base Topps had plates (though they were in the 2004 Traded set). A 2000 Aurora Premiere Date 49/52 Giambi rounds out today's pickups...I'm missing a lot of Pacific's numbered parallels, they just aren't real high on my wantlist. This one was a steal for a buck shipped, though.

We've got a 2018 Museum Collection Khris Davis auto that I didn't have yet. 2002 Fleer Triple Crown RBI Kings Giambi is one of those "regular" inserts that is far harder to find than the GU parallel version of the card. If you look closely the 1999 Stadium Club Ramon Hernandez is a First Day Issue, 105/200. Far tougher than the /200 would indicate. Carlton/Grove gets me closer to finishing all of the hobby and retail cards from 2002 Fleer Fall Classics Rival Factions featuring an A's player...this one is the hobby version, 434/500. I believe I have 2 hobbies and 1 retail to go to finally finish this one. Next is a 1999 UD Immaculate Perception Double 0708/1000 Ben Grieve, another one that is seemingly tougher than the serial number would indicate. And lastly the non-A's side of a 1998 Mystery Finest Grieve/McGriff, which completes all of the regular Grieves in the set. Still need a Grieve/McGriff Refractor to be completely done with it.

Still waiting on my COMC shipment, last tracking entry is "shipment received, package acceptance pending" 28 hours ago in a neighboring zip code to the one I live in. Come on let me drive down and pick it up.

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.
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.

The next time there's a show there, hopefully he's there, since he's not a FT dealer, I'll check and grab it then, if still available...
