I recently passed the 1,000 mark for the collection, completing my major collecting goal for the year. Thru this week I am up to 1,004 leaving me with exactly 300 more cards on the want list.

Some recent O'Neill mail....

and #1,004, the white whale....



2005 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites Autographs Rainbow PO #ed/10

I can't believe this card FINALLY popped up, I have been waiting 5 years just to see what one even looks like. Hit the BIN almost immediately, paid a tad more than I would have liked but I knew how high others were willing to go. I could probably list it right now for triple what I paid and probably have a buyer. I have always been a big fan of the ATFF sets and I can't express how stoked I am to land this.

Updated collection stats:
Currently at 77%, my goal for 2011 is to reach 80%, which is in the vicinity of 1045 cards.

Wicked, truly wicked collection.

I type the following as sheer force of habit . . .

Excellent additions. Some super tough cards especially the Studio Silver. I just sold an extra of that issue I had for a particular player for $100

Congrats Ravi! I had never seen that ATFF Rainbow before either. Wow, this makes me want to start collecting him again...

Great collection, and you picked a great guy to collect, what a warrior Paul O'Neil was, the heart of those great Yankee teams.

theplasticman - Congrats on the sale, fortunately I got my Studio Silver for a lot less than that.

basebal1fan - Thanks!

dabigbenchman - Thanks, means a lot coming from another Yankee collector. I feel the same way about O'Neill. People often say it was Jeter but they forget that he only became captain after O'Neill retired in 2001.

seawolf17 - Thanks! Hope you land one of McReynolds, will keep an eye out for you.

TheDogHollerer - Thank you!

Thanks again guys.
