The COMC shipment I request in June and was scheduled to ship in September finally arrived. I already have another 250 cards to ship from them at this point, but I won't be requesting any shipments until next year for sure. Or maybe I should request delivery now if I want them before 2025. I'll just show the "highlights" but I'll still have to break it up into 2 posts.

Cool to get the full 1981 Squirt Rickey Henderson panel. His last card remaining on my wantlist from that year is the Granny Goose card, which is tough and seems to often be potato chip stained.

102820comc-5.jpg
This batch completes team sets for 1993 Stadium Club First Day (one of my all-time favorites) and 1994 Sportflics Rookie/Traded Artist's Proofs. I'm 2 away from the Desert Shield team set and am only missing Rickey for the 1995 Donruss Press Proofs.

More '90s needs taken care of.

102820comc-7.jpg
I believe I'm down to just needing the McGwire for 1997 Bowman Chrome International Refractors and Grieve for 1998 Bowman's Best Atomics.

102820comc-2.jpg
Finishing up my Starting Lineup card needs, these can be a bit tough, especially if you would rather just have the card and not the sealed card/figure. The final one I needed was 1989 Walt Weiss, which I've currently got sitting in my COMC account.

102820comc-3.jpg
Topps Black pickups. I don't have any full Topps Black team sets but am just 2 away for 2003 and 1 away for 2004.

102820comc-4.jpg
Various other recent Topps parallels. I am 2 cards away from a complete A's Topps Gold run 2001-2016. The two I need seem to be short-printed but I've seen pictures of them so I know they exist at least. I'll just be patient.

And my regular mail from today:

102920.jpg
So now I've got all of the Cespedes 2012 Topps Chrome RCs from Red Refractor on up, except for the Sepia/75 for some reason. These two '88 Topps autographs put me below 70 needed for the set. I'm guessing my progress will really stall out when I get down to 40-50 left.

These aren't cards but when crazy items of PC players pop up you just have to snag them. Other than ghosts like the Starting 9 I'm about out of cards to acquire for Jeff so items like these have to do.

Only one today but it's a big one:

103020.jpg

I had never even considered that Satchel Paige may have had some A's cards based on the single game he pitched for Kansas City in 1965 as a publicity stunt. After I picked up his recent Topps Turn Back the Clock A's card a week ago I decided to search for others, and as far as I can tell his only other A's card was in 2005 Upper Deck Heroes - 6 different versions numberd to different amounts, a single one of which is a game-used pants card /10. So with a total of ten Satchel Paige A's GU cards in existence, when I saw one on eBay I had to pick it up. Definitely one of my favorite cards now.

Your passion for the A's is impressive. I pick up any type of Dodger cards whenever I can, but I don't think I could maintain the search for complete sets, especially the harder to find inserts and parallels. Would love to have all those complete team sets, but too much else to spend $ on. I hope I didn't steal one you needed, especially since the seller didn't use A's in the title, but I won a Bobby Crosby 2004 Donruss Team Heroes gold /10. I have never seen the Garvey from that year and would love to have one, but I just like the set and the golds, so i pick them up when they are cheap.

I'll have to dig out my junk inserts by team to see if you need any of my A's. My goal was to try to trade them for similar Dodger inserts, but never got the program rolling. They are mostly 80s-early 00s, nothing super special, but there may be 1 or more of those cards nobody cares enough to list and are hard to find.

Thanks. Yeah I tend to go for too much sometimes and have tried to reign it in and focus more on the cards I'm really interested in rather than just everything I don't have. You can't get everything so it's a waste of money to try when it's something as vast as an entire team. Speaking of, I don't have that Bobby Crosby Team Heroes/10 but it's also not something I particularly care about all that much so no big deal on missing it. Plenty of other A's (and plenty of Bobby Crosby cards even) to get. I do have one card from that set!



Anyway, today's mail was another tough one:

103120.jpg
1997 Score Reserve Collection Jason Giambi. I believe I only have one other card from this set, an Ariel Prieto. I think I got a decent price on this one because the seller was in Canada, about $9 shipped.

Here is what I have, nothing earth shattering. All of my semi-stars and any better players get sorted by name of player, but the commons all end up by team. If you need any or can't tell what the card is from the images, let me know. IMG_7986.jpgIMG_7987.jpg IMG_7985.jpgIMG_7988.jpg

At the risk of showing the depths of my team collecting depravity...I do have all of those (other than the stamped buybacks, which I don't really collect). Thank you for taking the time to look, though.
