So what do you do when you stop seeing the cards you need for a set? I've started to build the mini sets to keep my interest.

Hours upon hours of looking through flickr and trade lists. Constantly checking ebay.

Is there a better way? I have others looking also. I even take extras I dont need just to keep it going. Lol

Come out come out wherever you are

I feel your pain brother! I started my quest in 2004 ...to build the 2003 Timeless Treasures gold set! 100 players and only 10 of each card was made for each player! 16 years later...I have 75% of the cards......only missing about 25. But one no good xxxxx has 8 of the Roger Clemens gold cards.....he was on another site! He refused to trade it to me....I even offer about $75.00 for the worst one that he had....there were two or three with dings around the bottom of the cards....and he said only if it was last one that I needed. I check everyday on ebay....and maybe once a year one of the gold show up on ebay.......But I'll probably never finish the set. Happy Holidays, David

Lol. Oh the hoarders are there for the set I'm doing also. I know that for sure. Atleast the clemens collector said if it's the last card he would sell. About 2 years ago there was a short period where I couldnt check ebay and dont you know most of what I needed popped up from same seller and sold cheaper than they should have. It's what makes the hobby fun as long as they slowly show up.

The only thing....would be sign up at all of the trading sites and post your wantlist for all to see! Their also sites like Sportslot.com or COMC that you can check....Place an Ad for them in Sports collector magazine...I use to get it daily ...so I don't know if their still around. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you and your family! Best wishes, David
