AMAZING collection you have! Just incredible the cards you have acquired over the years and then having them all slabbed...WOW!!
Thank you for the compliment . I've been able to get lots of help from many board members and Clemens collectors along the way its been a group effort. Luckily I collect cards and not reputations, so I've just chugged away on him since 1984.

Next up will be the visually pleasing Materials Ink subset- one of my favorites. If they want to do faux art -this is how I like it done ! Lucked out on a few as they came up during negative publicity times. Saved a lot of money holding off buying. They still were not cheap but cheaper than peak days.

There are 8 variations of them = all numbered to just 5 each. The fact I've been able to accumulate 3 different examples is a blessing

Got 4 slabs back from PSA two were re-slabs ( the Leaf Limited) and two were new poppages
The Leafs had come back reverse labeled- PSA corrected. Other two just popped
Been carrying both around forever so grades are as expected

So the BGS registry has been down 3 days now and not functioning (what else is new) so I couldn't update photos in my Clemens registry. I did the scans just couldn't update them. So here's the next 2004 Timeless Treasures subsets the Rookie Year Materials and Statistical Champions subsets.
Inventory girl has been sent the pics and my checklist is done just gotta update there when they get around to fixing it

The Rookie Year stuff I'll question the authenticity of think DLP got taken ( Clemens never gave up his rookie year stuff to anyone) .It has 8 items been able to slab two. I own 2 others that need slabbing when I locate where I put them
Most of the signatures are numbered 9 or less in that sub series and most cards are 25 or less

The Stats Champs has about a dozen cards, all low numbered, all 5 or less and just a pain to locate. Been able to find 5 of them so far. Slabbing the last one as we speak. The dupe jersey number is going in my sale pile once I get that far on the dupes. I remember getting it back low graded and mailing the other out and praying- glad it upgraded !!

The last of the 2004 Timeless Treasures is scanned. The World Series Materials sub set is sometimes confusing
The Prime is # to 10 = and the Base to 9 = you go figure out why. Anyways the Prime example I have is one of the few laundry tags I own
I have a bunch more to slab but missing half of them at least. Props to @Pinbreaker for the #/10 assist
And will be bringing more over from secured storage just finished a 2nd box so these all go back in morning

After a week of torture at work getting to some scans. I think I have the auto version of these "somewhere"
I haven't really slabbed many from this series as a lot of base inserts and I always do GU and autos first
Will be scanning the 2004 Sweet Spot series next when I get more time

OK folks after two weeks of concentrating on grading subs taking a break as my budgets about to explode from so many packages. Up next in the scan list is 2004 UPPER DECK SWEET SPOT . I've let my feeling be known on prior years what I think of Sweet Spot. Suffice to say this years version was decent

Info on the set can be found here at 2004 SWEET SPOT

The set has a whole slew of autos, single, double, triple and quad pieces and some nice inserts included.
Haven't taken an inventory lately of what I need, but its not on my priority list right now ( when I don't like a set its back burner)

Scans below will get to more later . Believe I have a dupe of the Diamond Champs patch ( # 02/10) somewhere
And getting bat pieces for both Clemens and Johnson- um yeah - again I doubt they are authentic despite claims
Maybe batting practice bats- certainly not their game used ones
I've also remarked how difficult it is to get wins against the Johnson crowd on these
You wind up paying more for these mid level game used than you'd expect back then and I'm sure even now

I will scan my triple and quads in a bit have to answer more emails I'm behind on and send inventory girl the links

Scanned the Triple and Quads, emailed my inventory girl, heading to bed before the graveyard shift at work
On these your fighting every player collector genre there is. Some of the highest numbered to 99 costs you'll see are in Quad jersey pieces. Especially ones that have future or current Hall of Famers with rabid collector bases
Not even gonna mention how many I went through to find the best conditioned
