i've had my nefarious 9 - the list of my most wanted cards - up there on the right side of this blog since july of 2009. sometimes, the cards listed are fairly obscure, and sometimes they are just a wayward base card that has eluded me for some reason. sometimes i wait, and sometimes i pull the trigger quickly to acquire one (or more) of the cards. these days, i wonder how many people actually look at this blog via the web version, as the list doesn't show up on the mobile version as i currently have it configured.
anyway, the list today consists of the following:
1 - 2007 upper deck sweet spot classic steve garvey/reggie smith dual auto2 - 2008 donruss threads steve garvey #/250
3 - 2011 topps chrome clayton kershaw atomic refractor parallel #107
4 - 2011 topps chrome chad billingsley atomic refractor parallel #167
5 - 2014 topps update justin turner black parallel
6 - 2014 topps update justin turner camo parallel
7 - 2014 topps update justin turner pink parallel
8 - 2014 topps alex guerrero target red border
9 - 2014 topps chrome alex guerrero xfractor
this is a relatively new version of the list, except for number 1, which has been sitting there for quite some time. that means that there have been some formerly nefarious acquisitions, some of which i will show here this morning.
it took me about two years, but i did finally pick up the fourth jackie robinson card (here are the other three) from 2004 upper deck sweet spot classics
here's a 2014 topps archives duke snider card
the next three cards were on the list for an even shorter time. somehow, i missed a 2014 topps update paul maholm card
when putting together the team set on sportlots. omission reversed.
i also wound up finding duplicates of a couple of parallels of justin turner's card from last year's update - the target red parallel
another card on the list is steve garvey's 2008 donruss threads parallel numbered to 250. i thought that i had one already and was missing the version numbered to 100 when i purchased this
as always, any help is appreciated and rewarded. please help a blogger out - i need to make room on that list for some 2015 cards!
