Default Anyone Else Collecting a 1987 Topps Autographed Set?

Bidding on ebay the last few weeks has been fast and furious for signed 1987 Topps baseball cards. I was wondering if anyone else on this forum is putting together a signed 1987 Topps set?
I am currently +450 cards in. In my bidding haste I have accumulated about 20-30 doubles that I would be willing to trade if there is anyone else on the road to 784.

Thanks!

How will you deal with the Ricky Wright situation?

I have secured Randy Myers (it helps I live in his hometown). In my perception Dick Howser will likely be the most difficult and expensive card in the set. I have yet to see one available in nearly a year of searching.
I am also completing several of the subsets the glossy all-star cards (from rack packs) and the all star rookie cards (from cello packs). The all star rookies seem to be the more difficult of the two.

Howser is tough but out there. I have seen at least 6. I sold one on ebay a few months ago and have one with my complete signed set. Good luck. It is a great set, but obviously very popular with autograph set collectors

How did you land a signed Howser? Any other cards especially difficult to find? Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
