Wow, I guess I haven't seen it all in this hobby yet!  I mean seriously? What are the chances?

Disappointed.  Dejected. Only added six cards to the set.  May just depend on the blog-o-sphere for the remaining 30-something cards.

Clearly I will be willing to unload these dupes, and  the dupes of the dupes.

My Needs:
1, 8, 23, 27, 48, 61, 66, 75, 82, 86. 94, 107, 117, 134 SP, 144, 160, 163, 167, 170, 172, 174, 178, 185, 193 SP, 194, 204, 218 SP, 220, 228, 231 238, 240, 242, 244, 245, 247, 250 (Yes, really), 254, 269, 276 SP, 285, 287, 302, 318, 326 (Need 40 cards, 87.9% Complete)

  1. I hate it when that happens, but it doesn't usually happen in consecutive packs. Especially not consecutive hanger box packs. Maybe the collation in that store's card aisle was magically transported back to 1990.
