Don't tell my dentist, but...

I need your plaque!  2002 Fleer Fall Classic HOF Plaques to be exact.  Thirty-one months ago, I set out to build this thirty card insert set.  Recently I was contacted by a fellow collector named Steve, who stumbled across my blog and offered to trade me these four cards that I needed for my set:

Cy Young, Luis Aparicio, Kirby Puckett, & Ozzie Smith

The addition of those four cards means I now have 83% of the set completed and leaves me needing only five cards to finish off the set and wrap up my thirty-one month journey.


Does anyone out there have a Babe Ruth, Christy Mathewson, Willie Stargell, Nolan Ryan, and/or Robin Yount they'd like to trade?  If so, I'd love to work something out.

Thanks Steve for all of your help.  I look forward to future trades.

Happy Friday and sayonara!

  1. I'm sure you're looking to do this on the cheap, but if you wanted to spring for it 4 of the 5 you need are on COMC. One guy has the Mathewson and the Yount for $2.25 a piece and another guy's got Babe Ruth for $3.50. Nolan Ryan, not so reasonable at $10.25. You could use the make an offer feature though, which I do all the time, to try to nab them a bit cheaper.

    You probably already knew all that but just wanted to let you know in case!

    1. Thanks for the suggestion. I actually started building this set, because I found a bunch of them on COMC at blowout prices. I'm sort of torn, because part of me wants to finish the set... but at the same time, I don't want to pay crazy prices. I'll probably pick singles up every now and then when I see them at reasonable prices.
