Default What's everyone's White Whale of the Moment?

What card is currently driving your nuts with its elusivity. Doesn't even necessarily have to be rare, but what are you after, but it escapes your grasp?

At the moment, I'm dying for a the '52 Topps Brodowski, PSA 6 range and centered. I saw one once on ebay a good two years ago, that fit the bill. but it was between it and the '52 Pellagrini, and I opted for the latter. I thought surely another would pop 'round, but amazingly I have yet to come upon another in similar condition. He hasn't even turned up in the last few Heritage auctions. Driving me bonkers, but I'll find him sooner or later!

What about you all?

A perfectly centered 1954 Bowman Ted Williams. I was freakin' underbidder on the last two to sell on eBay (one was a PSA 5, the other a PSA 4.5). Very tough card to find centered.

Also wouldn't mind a PSA 8 1971 Roberto Clemente or Nolan Ryan.

A 1952 Mathews that doesn't look like it lived in a wallet for 30 years for under $700.

The little paper booklet that was the "salesman" sample for 53 Glendale Hot Dog Tigers.......Also the life size cardboard cut out that was in the grocery stores.....(Only heard about that, never saw one, and one may not have survived). Dave.

A PM15 Yellow Basepath that is not a Greengrass. There's only BINs on any of them and are ridiculously out of proportion, or at least my own price range.

@Brewing: 52T Mathews in decent condition...I know several dealers who are totally scrounging for them. Really tough and not exactly sure why.

I am still patiently waiting for two:
1. 1959 Venezuelan Mantle
2. 1962 Post Canadian Mantle, 163 hits, "4th time" variation
