I love watching the progress of collectors pursing a signed set

I'm at 208. Gary Lucas, Denis Menke (Astros Leaders) and Jose Guzman have all come back. I recently was given a gift of Lou Piniella and Dwight Lowry.

Well, I can at least enjoy today's successes as opposed to yesterday's failures. Neil Allen and Rich Yett came in. It's 222 now.

Wow. So I sent in a mail order for the St. Louis Show this weekend for a couple of players and Jorge Orta won't be attending. It looks like he has cancelled appearances before. Something has happened with his new agent and cut off contact, now he might've left the country.

I don't know the situation, but I'm disappointed. Anybody else have trouble with Orta before?

Great returns thus far. I'm concentrating on the 83' set and sent out about 100 in Nov/Dec. I need to get back on it. I saw you recieved a return from Balboni, I got a RTS that he moved in Dec. Guess it was a bad address.

I got a return from Carl Willis and bought a signed Ken Howell card for $2.00. So now it's 231.

I see Dennis McKinnon is doing a signing this month and his 1986 Topps card, which he is notorious for not signing, is available for signature at $35.00, though higher than a ticket for other items.

Maybe there's hope for us who want Ricky Wright after all.

I was able to get Rich Bordi on his base card last year and got him a second time today, this time for the Orioles Leaders card.

While anything's possible, I'm going to guess it's a fake. Winning bidder better send to JSA.

I'm debating with others over the Wright. Meanwhile, Sid Bream signed his base card as well as the Pirates Leaders for me, putting me at 235.

I am guessing that if that Wright was real the bidding would be greater.

Wow. Seven returns today. Six are from the 1987 set.

John Stefero (Also signed a checklist)
Floyd Rayford
Luis Salazar
Bob Horner (From a show in St. Louis)
Sammy Stewart (From a show in New York)
Ricky Horton (X2)

Now I'm at 245/792.

Nice progress on your set. I have been considering doing the 1989 Topps set. I have a case of wax boxes and may open enough to make a set or two. I want to send some out plus I already have several. Are there very many difficult to get guys in 89 Topps?

Also would it be wise to send some from like 89 Donruss or Fleer since the checklists may be similar and some guys will sign multiples. I have not worked on any larger sets. I have been working on a 1976 Wonder Bread Football set and I need just a few more signatures to finish it up.

Let me research and I'll be happy to share. Go ahead and send multiples, but be careful not only who signs but how much. Some are one per. Others do multiples. I'll come up with a list for you.

There are quite a few deceased and HOF players but most are relatively inexpensive. The toughest/most expensive HOFer in the set would probably be Randy Johnson, unless you also decide to work on the Traded set which includes Ken Griffey Jr. The tougher guys are going to be the commons that disappeared after their careers, especially those players from foreign countries like the Dominican, Mexico, etc.

Here's a quick run down of the guys that might be challenging and/or costly to acquire:

HOFers-
Randy Johnson
Hank Aaron TBTC (he's very pricey these days)
Gary Carter (has 3 cards in the set (base, All-Star, highlights), and he did not sign cards made after 1984 for free, so anyone who obtained these cards probably did so for their own private collection, which limits the amount that would be available to the public now.)
Kirby Puckett (probably not hard to find per se but may be more expensive than you'd first think since his death was sudden and unexpected)

Deceased players-
Tim Crews
Pascual Perez
Frank Williams
Bo Diaz (passed in Venezuela in 1990, would be very hard to find)
Carmen Castillo (he hated signing)

Toughies-
Fred Manrique
Hipolito Pena
Jim Traber
Mel Hall
Andy Allanson
Johnny Paredes
Mike Diaz
German Jimenez
Jose Cecena
Stan Jefferson
Carlos Quintana
Candy Sierra
German Gonzalez
Wil Tejada
Barry Bonds (even though he's involved in the game again, he's super tough)

Hope that helps.

Claudell Washington is not tough to get. He signs for $10.00 via PastPros.

I got Glenn Hubbard on my Braves Leaders today and special thanks to someone who got Bert Blyleven and Tim Laudner for me at TwinsFest, along with Neil Allen and Roy Smalley again.

248/792.

I got Mark Salas back c/o White Sox Spring Training and also Kurt Stillwell for 251.

Both would be good for the person who's collecting the 1989 set.
