Been 5 months since the last past and no change

Not quite 10 left on the Jeff Frye list but here they are. I also still need the 1997 Pinnacle Press Plate Previews and 1998 Stadium Club Printing Plates but I've accepted the fact that finding them is just going to be due to blind luck.

1. 1995 Upper Deck Electric Diamond Gold #393 - Never seen one for sale
2. 1998 Stadium Club First Day Issue #281 /200 - Never seen one period
3. 1999 Fleer Tradition Starting 9 #404 /9 - Bane just like everyone else who has someone in this set
4. 2001 Pacific Retail LTD #137 /85 - One just went unsold on eBay for the fourth or fifth time in a Rockies Team Set but I can't make myself pay $120 for it
5. 1993 Decker Rangers #9 - Seen a picture of this one at least
6. 1997 Red Sox Score Premier #10 - Never seen one
7, 1999 Boston Red Sox Team Issued Photocards #NNO - Seen a picture but that's it
8. 2000 Boston Red Sox Team Issued Photocards #NNO - Never seen it
9. 2017 Texas Rangers Team Issued Alumni Alley #NNO - Saw a pic of a stack of them in a picture of him signing cards at the stadium on the Rangers website but that's it. Can't believe how hard this one has been to find.

The Sox photo cards are tough, there are a few they didn't even change the pic, just altered the cropping making some really hard to spot

You have any leads on any of them? I can't even get cards shops in Boston to admit to any knowledge of ever seeing them.
Do not get too excited but I'll check what I have, I don't remember a french Frye but I'll look when im out of work. I have 4, I think different Wakefield, one also came in an 8x10 version but I have no idea what year. They are completely blank back so unless you have something to compare with the year is almost complete guess work.

Appreciate it. I've reached the point of just accepting that collection is what it is unless a miraculous find happens so I don't ever get my hopes up.

Sorry dude, I had more than I thought but most from mid 2000s. I did find a late 90s Rich "El guapo" Garces though if you need a postcard of a potato.

Too bad for me that none of those cards I mentioned are going to be made any time soon. Still no hockey player I desire, I'm basically 'full' for most every other sport, logo/insignia cards are not a big issue, just those Daeadon/Barbourofelis, Hayoceros/Ilingoceros, Cyphornis/Osteodontornis, Ophthalmosaurus/Terminatator/Prognathodon/Albertonectes, and Arctotraversodon/Chronoperates etc. Best bet for me getting any cards I really want in the next year or two is the Steamrunner Class from Star Trek and maybe a black & White CFL John Helton HoF card.

2. 1998 Stadium Club First Day Issue #281 /200 - Still never seen one
3. 1999 Fleer Tradition Starting 9 #404 /9 - Bane just like everyone else who has someone in this set
4. 2001 Pacific Retail LTD #137 /85 - Teamsets4u still has his/her Rockies team set that pops up on eBay now and then but I still won't pay $120 for it.
5. 1997 Red Sox Score Premier #10 - Never seen one
6, 1999 Boston Red Sox Team Issued Photocards #NNO - Seen a picture but that's it
7. 2000 Boston Red Sox Team Issued Photocards #NNO - Never seen it
8. 2017 Texas Rangers Team Issued Alumni Alley #NNO - Saw a pic of a stack of them in a picture of him signing cards at the stadium on the Rangers website but that's it.

Others:

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I managed to acquire 20% of the list over the last year though so I'm pretty happy with that given the limited nature of everything.

Jeff Frye Wants:
1. 1995 Upper Deck Electric Diamond Gold #393 - Saw a pic of it finally but I still haven't seen one for sale.
2. 1998 Stadium Club First Day Issue #281 /200 - I still haven't seen one.
3. 1999 Fleer Tradition Starting 9 #404 /9 - Bane just like everyone else who has someone in this set
4. 1997 Red Sox Score Premier #10 - I still haven't seen one but a few of the Red Sox have been popping up in the last month, so hopefully Jeff will too soon.
5. 1999 Boston Red Sox Team Issued Photocards #NNO - Seen a picture but that's it
6. 2000 Boston Red Sox Team Issued Photocards #NNO - Never seen it
7. 2017 Texas Rangers Team Issued Alumni Alley #NNO - I spoke with Jeff at a show last August and he confirmed they exist at least. I've still never seen one other than in the pic on the Rangers' site.

Ryan Helsley Wants:
8. 2015 Bowman Chrome Draft Asia Black Wave Refractor #189 - I haven't seen one. I've read the print run is ~50 and being an Asian exclusive this could be interesting.
9. 2019 Topps Update Clear #US248 /10 - One Cardinals collector has 4 of the 10 and I can't pry one away. The only other I have seen sold right at release before prices settled.

Miscellaneous Wants:
10. 1993 Decker Rangers Nolan Ryan - I still want to complete the set.


Adds to the PC from last year's list:
PC Needs
Jeff Frye - 2001 Pacific Retail LTD #137 /85 - I found one in a random lot of Rockies Pacific stuff on eBay and I didn't pay $120 for it so that's a win.
Master Set Needs
1995 Select Certified Mirror Gold Derek Jeter - This was the last major piece to my 1995 Select Certified Master Set run. I still need a Mattingly Mirror Gold and a couple inserts but it should be done this year.

I have quite a few Griffey’s that I know aren’t coming off the list any time ever mainly the 93/94 finest refractors.

1. 1990 leaf preview (I’ll be ready to pull trigger next week)
2. 1989 Fleer Glossy (end of year)
3. 1994 UpperDeck up close and personal gold sig on gold bottom when I find one.
4. 1989 UpperDeck I’ll be looking to grab some nicely graded or raw if I can. I only own one currently.
5. Any Topps Tiffany’s. I currently only have one.

I cleared my #1 off my list. 👍👍👍
