Rarely do I find 30 O'Neill cards I need in a single week anymore, so this was an epic mail week for me thanks to some awesome traders. Along with these O'Neills I also got 650+ different Yankees Topps cards in the same trade for my team set project. Some highlights:

First off, two 1980s cards now leaves me 3 cards short of completing the 80s.

1983 Tampa Tarpons TCMA #19 (w/ entire team Set)

1988 Starting Lineup Reds #14

Some 90s stuff.

1998 Leaf Rookies and Stars True Blue #92

1999 Fleer Mystique Gold #34

Moving onto the 2000s, all low-numbered.

2000 Pacific Platinum Blue /75 (Believe it or not, my only purchase of the week, $0.99 with free shipping)

2000 Upper Deck Exclusives Silver /100 (Another toughie)

2003 Topps Retired Signature Black /99

2004 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites Refractors 26 /299

2005 Finest Refractor + Black X-Fractor (puts me Gold XF short of the non-1/1 rainbow)

It's always nice to find these, especially in bulk....

(9x) 1998 Topps Tek #37 (puts me at 39/90 overall)

(3x) 1998 Topps Tek Diffractors #37 :D (puts me a 4/90 overall)

And the two big ones...

2004 Topps Originals 1989 Autograph /24 (Gives me 2 of 5 Topps Buybacks)

1999 SkyBox Thunder Super Rave /25 :D :D :D :D :D
Just got in from the stadium (no game of course) and it was nice to see a player addition like this one! Nice, a few I need in that batch too!
Awesome.. I sure do miss "the warrior" he is one of my all time faves... I like when he is in the booth for Yankee games and ragging on Kay.. :D

Super-nice cards! I remember the chase on those Rave cards - they were extremely tough even when the product was being busted! I couldn't imagine trying to track one down now!

Thanks guys, it sure was a great mailweek! Normally it takes months for me to make this kind of progress. I did pass some small milestones with the latest haul:

1980s Decade: 34/37 = 91.89% complete (Passed the 90% mark!)
1990s Decade: 570/706 = 80.74% complete (Passed the 80% mark!)

Yes, those Tek patterns are tough to find, it was nice getting that many in one shot. I am also very psyched about finding the 3 Diffractors as well, my realistic goal is to find 9 of them and fill a single 9-card page. With these three I am now up to 4!

Thanks Tim, the Super Rave /25 was another awesome find, especially since I was able to trade for it! Beckett doesn't list odds, but I'm sure they were astronomical.
