Bo knows how to whittle down my wants and Rolen a new set

I received an e-mail from reader Bo who was kind enough to go through my most wanted list and knock two of my sets down to a single remaining card for each to complete them. Bo was able to whittle down both 1990 Donruss and 1991 Ultra by sending the following:

Many thanks in getting these down to a card apiece. Hopefully you get the envelope I sent back to you in the next few days, hope the cards work for you Bo.

You'd think that being 9000 plus cards in we wouldn't see a new set, but we get just that in the keeper cards today. Still, not enough for the highlight of the 20 cards today though - but very close.


Another add for the 2009-10 McDonalds set. Any such food/insert card that I need is always a great add, especially with a nice design like this.

The rest

Definitely the newer side of sets through the Santa set. This is the first 2001 Fleer Showcase card. The base set is 160 cards however the last 45 cards are serial numbered. Seeing as this is the first card I've seen, I presume I won't be getting many more, but at least it is a small set. If I do get a few more I really like, might have to consider getting more. A solid card and decent enough design. Other than suffering from removing all of the background, this is alright. Also excited to see any A&G cards as I don't have many, and don't buy many.


A number of trade cards with some decent 2005 Upper Deck classics dupes, but also a couple not-so-usual dupes with an Ovechkin 2006 POG, and the Andre Johnson Heritage card as well.
