F-unc Tango Eggs.
No one can even seem to agree on how many cards are in the set, let alone possess them all.
Don't know the ACC number for Allegheny's, but that would have to be on there.

W601 Sporting Life Postcard set of 16 is real tough. I've been looking for ten years for the Detroit to complete my set. (I do however know that it exists and who has one and have been assured that I'm in the Will. Right, Dan?)

The Ullman postcard set of 12 likewise is extremely tough.

There are probably dozens of sets that nobody has ever completed, and Leon's four choices are near the top.

Try to complete the three card Red Stocking cigar set. You couldn't get all three if you lived to a hundred.

Allegheny is a set of 112, is unique, was broken up long ago. I would say that it would be virtually impossible to put it back together.

This set deserves mention in this thread:

1910 Orange Borders


Not sure if many people have more than one of the player cards... let alone the whole set.
