For those of you who aren't familiar with the product, they were an oddball issue intended to be played as a game. Here's a quick peek at the instructions, which can be found on the back of some of the cards:
I found it interesting that this 108 card set was distributed on 144 different panels. So the hunt was on for a complete set with all of the different panels.
Then a few weeks ago, I commented about my interest in purchasing a set over on Brian's blog: Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary.
This led to Jim (GCRL) reaching out to me and offering to sell me a complete set of panels for whatever I felt was a reasonable price. We agreed on $25 shipped. The set arrived on Monday and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. I was planning on doing a set spotlight post, but quickly realized that there was no way I was going to scan all 144 panels or even each of the 108 cards.

Thank you Jim for offering to sell me one of your extra sets. I also appreciate the freebies you threw into the package:
That Laureano is awesome! It's still my favorite card of 2020. And this purple parallel helps me get one step closer to completing the rainbow.
And since I have no intention of ever scratching these cards, here's a different kind of scratching for you...
Happy Saturday and sayonara!
