Luckily, I have two other guys I know that either are putting the set together, or have already completed it. They both have been helping me look for some of the tougher guys, and when one of them messaged me the other day to tell me that a Seaver popped up on Ebay, I jumped at the chance to go ahead and cross that name off of my list.
The cost was pretty high, but in the end, I would have regretted letting it pass, so I made sure the card would be in my album.
Seaver (b. 1944) played in the majors from 1967 to 1986 for the Mets, Reds, White Sox and Red Sox. He had a career record of 311-205 with 3,640 strike outs and an ERA of 2.86. He won the 1967 NL Rookie of the Year Award and was a three-time NL Cy Young Award Winner (1969, 1973 and 1975). He was a 12-time All Star (1967 to 1973, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978 and 1981). His best MVP finish was 2nd in 1969. He won the World Series with the Mets in 1969. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1992 with a then-record 98.8% of the vote. His vote percentage still ranks third all-time.
Garver (b. 1991) has played in the majors since 2017 for the Twins. He has 90 hits, 7 home runs and a .259 batting average. He was drafted in the 9th round of the 2013 June Amateur Draft out of the University of New Mexico.
I mailed to Garver on February 12 and got the cards back on February 26, for a 14-day TAT.
I had some Christmas money that I hadn't spent, so I had a little bit of a budget. I bought mostly stuff for other people, which is usually the case. I did, however, find a few things for myself. Most of what I bought was vintage stuff for TTMs and cirrent prospect stuff for graphing. I did grab a few things for the collection, like the above 1949 Bowman Ralph Kiner.
The Kiner is really rough, but I liked it, and it was part of a bulk vintage deal with one of my favorite vendors. I paid $20 for this card and a stack of lower grad vintage for TTMs.
I had a great time at the show. I was happy with everything I picked up, and I really appreciate Jackson inviting me.

I mailed to him on February 11 and got the cards back on February 26, for a 15-day TAT.
