I'm hoping you just mean the set itself and not getting the set signed. No way unless you are loaded rich you would be able to get the entire set autographed

Not too bad. You can buy a case of the stuff for around $200-220 which will give you a great start, plus you can sell the YSLs and hits to get some of your money back on the case. I did a case myself and it was pretty fun. I was able to help out quite a few team/player collectors on this site and got some nice Twins lots in exchange...I sold the leftover YSLs and Golds from the case and got around $100+ back on the case, plus I had 12 Autographs, a YSL GU and YSL Buyback auto. Now if you're looking to do all the golds, then I'd say you're crazy.

I say, go for it. If you do not set a time limit to complete it, you should have a chance. Just make sure you have enough trade bait/money.

I voted for it. It can't be any worse than trying to do the 1998 Topps Tek set of 8100 cards. Hope it works for you. Butch

oldmarine0311-I may just do that if I get a case and I get any YSL's for the Bench I would be more than willing to work something out with you.

As far as it goes I think I am going for it good or bad.

I got a box full of a couple hundred of these actually. 5 or so AS and 25 or so golds.

If I can downsize into some GU/AU's or something, I can send them your way.

blowoutcards has them very very cheap.. Like 250 a case I think..

Chris

Blowout has them for around $220 during the weekend specials, which is higher than they were a few months back ($180), but still a good deal IMO. Cracking a case will give you most of the base and insert cards, but will barely get you started on the golds.

5% not so bad and you can get free shipping if you do not mind waiting the 2-5 estimated days which is what I did.

I think I might have a couple hundred of these cards. You can get them at the Dollar Tree. They are yours if you want them. I know we talked about trading for some Mets base cards, I'd be more then happy to trade you what I have for those Mets. LMK.

Look at this way, with the glass half full. You will always be on the hunt for something. I think that is the challenge here. Finding what we are looking for. Besides how important is it what others think?
