Well, they were in there. And, one I haven't found before (but saw on the junk wax website); the original(?) "cards not included" one.

Is it just me, or does anyone else have a girlfriend who looks at you weird when you try to explain why this send-away card is way more awesome than that one?

I also got a few Chipper Jones rookies, one with the pink blob, and one with like pink squiggle lines in his hat. I actually don't know much about that one.

Also, does anyone know how rare the "cards not included" version of the send-away card is?

Anyway, I thought since I am obviously relapsing, I would at least share with you guys. I still have a ton to look through, so maybe if there is something interesting, I will add them to my ramble.
Is the "cards not included" version for sale? PM if so. Thank you!

But I do all my modern sets on ebay so have no real collateral damage to deal with.
I also think that's almost certain. I compared my list to the online lists, and there was only "some" overlap. Not all the stuff on my list would count to some collectors, but it is all consistent. Someday I'll do the typing needed to post it.

I for one look forward to your list Steve. Maybe a collaborative effort here can come from it

Default And some more of those send away cards

The original "Cards Not Included" plus an arrow one, one that has no tiny text (and a blank back), and one with a different back.

Are these all from the same set, or maybe different sets? I figured one of you gents will know for sure.

I originally paid like $99 for mine last year, but now I see a couple on ebay for slightly less. Until last year, the only place I had ever even seen one is on the junk wax site. I think this version is really rare. For example, I got the Whiten hand over border easily on ebay, and the Drabek white border with no problem, and I think those are fairly hard to come by.

It is really hit or miss. Sometimes (often, at least in my case) you get nothing. You really have to search the whole lot. Once I bought a couple of cases of random cards from a guy out in the middle of nowhere. The whole lot was worthless, except for ONE card. I got the Chris Hoiles white border card, and it was worth more than I paid for the whole lot. Another time, I bagged (what turned out to be) a PSA 8 Jeter SP rookie.

In my opinion, a lot of it is about the thrill of the chase, and the little rush you get when you pull out something awesome. For me, it is even BETTER when I get some cards that someone else already looked through (like in this case), and I still find something amazing.
Others might have a different reason for it though.

Can't tell from your picture, did you get all 3 versions?
