More scans including some Gem Mint game used from 2007 Ultimate
Includes a jersey number item and somewhere I believe I have the 1/1 Career Best Prime Materials
I remember in 2007 when the first bankruptcy stuff started showing noticing the "no serial number "replacement stuff
Picked up so I'd have numbered and unnumbered versions. I'll scan more tomorrow

A few more scans done. A 2006 Ultimate Quad I prefer strong sigs but apparently BGS doesn't like these.
Not sure why = the Oswalt isn't cut off- he just didn't go all the way down. All strong with no smears or fading.
The Xfractor I found right when the series came out. The dual Elite have owned forever same with the ACN.
The ACN I own this 1/1 version and another stamped to 5.
More to follow slowly working my way thru Box 1 of stuff.

From the 2005 DONRUSS CLASSICS series a bunch of scans. Havent done a list of what I need in forever
Actually haven't bought any Clemens in forever concentrating on other Red Sox in my PC.
The Jersey Number piece we discussed years ago whether they did it on purpose or not ( his number was 12,21, or 22 = not 23 at any time). No one at DLP ever admitted to whether it was done intentionally to draw attention to the series or if the person didn't know Clemens jersey #. Even today no ones fessed up to the truth. I may have 1 or 2 more buried somewhere found these in the same box I've been scanning

Been busy doing personal stuff the last few days and more doc visits with wife. Scanning was back burner to my PSA subs
Got some time so some new scans. Some Clemens and a few new others once I get that far.
The Diamond Dominators was my first 10 back in the day and that and the Metal Universe made me happy when they came back. Anyone who has subbed either series knows the Gem difficulties. Refractor Gems are relatively common although I seem to be the only one subbing Clemens. The team book I have a bunch of PSA 10 I may cross over 1 day.
This got the Auth label as my hand slipped cutting it manually so the line is wavy hence the no grade auth slab.

What is the "Team Book" designation? I have never heard of this somehow.
Look at eBay auction 303497793936 Billy. Any Donruss card from these books is going to display certain characteristics having been hand cut from the books. Cool little 80's innovation. Mine my hand slipped and I was slightly off producing a wavy line. I'll try again, I have some books here, and a few PSA 10 I'll try with.

No posts in my own thread in 8 weeks tells you how busy its been in my life
Some recent stuff back. I have more to follow as I catch up on lots of projects I am behind on
First BGS sub in 18 months back. And a few PSA re-slabs with new slab covers
Scanning more will show of more as I catch scanning and my registries up

Thanks. The Robert was an exciting pull. It was the first pack of my one box break. Stashed the other box in the closet for another day.

@Joey_peapod First love :love: the Griffey's nice collection of them !! This is why people who work the 1990s Finest sets are on a never ending quest to complete their sets. Although Phillip Gold died there are still lots of collectors of that 1993 set ( he was just the most aggressive) including our very own @George_Calfas . Good time to pop that 1993 one up is Turkey Day weekend when feebay offers a ton of promotions enticing high end buyers. I completed my 1993-1995 sets years ago and have been working on 1996-1999 the last 8 years. Stuck in the Killer B's right now but making headway so its all good. Only way some of the players will get here for the sets is relationships with player collectors. Wish my fingers were not always in so many pies otherwise I'd have probably completed dozens of projects years ago. But that's also why the hobby never gets boring for me ( the dozens of projects) so I'm cool with slow slogs.

Another slab scan caught up. With #7 back leaves me I believed with 7 or 8 still at PSA and will be done with ALL the Mark McGwires from that 1998 Pacific HR History set with most in PSA 9 or better condition. Think maybe 1 or 2 PSA 8 which I can upgrade.

Some supersized slabs back from PSA ( large slabs 4 inch wide by 7 inch tall)
Not the largest I have but big enough !! If folks remember my Red Sox PC posts I own tons of disc sets.
Slabbing a lot of PC items and selling others.








Goes well with the Papa Ginos I've had for a while now
