Player collection doldrums

In the last 6 months I've only picked up about 90 items total. Last 30 days... only 10.

In 2010 I think I've only managed to find 2 cards from my Bucky Jacobsen want list.

Bummer!

I feel your pain. My Weinke collection is pretty stagnant. I picked up a card yesterday that I needed, the first Weinke card I had picked up in months. Such is life for the collectors of such 2nd and 3rd tier players.

How close are you to everything?

After four years, I finally nailed down the last card to complete my Steve Howard collection. Granted, he only had 20 cards, but finally knocking that one out definitely helped keep my spirits up. Now if I could just find that one last Bernardo Brito!

I'm down to under 20 cards needed to complete my Ahmad Bradshaw collection (other than 1/1's) and I've picked up a few over the last few months...i've started trying to work on getting as much stuff /25 or less as I can to keep from getting overly bored with it.

sad part is it may take years to get the last 15 or so i need....if ever.

I've wiped out about 95% of all the Jerry Rice available that I need on this board and others. The stuff I do need people either will not come off on them or they want way too much in return.

I feel everyone else's pain. I have added 3 Lankfords to my collection this year so far. Have lost out on a handful of others on EBAY. Sooner or later something will show up that I need.

Luckily(and unluckily depending on how you look at it :)) for me Maddux has a ridiculous number of cards, Since coming back to fulltime trading in early September, I have picked up nearly 200 Maddux cards.

I am having hardly any luck with my Ryan collection! I started back trading again in August/September, and have picked up a handful of Ryan's I need. I bought some GU'd and AUTO lots as trade bait...figuring i'd be trading left and right...not happening! "Where in the world are the Nolan Ryan's?...ha ha.

Slavlite, what's your secret? Don't hold out on us, ha ha.

Did you stop with Henderson? If so and you have not liquidated, let me know.

I pick up new Garvey items, usually photos and autographs at a rate of maybe 10-20/yr. New cards at maybe 2-3 per year, unless a new issue floods the market. As far as I know, the new Topps update is complete except for a 1/1 manufactured bat card.
