It's about damn time.

Sometimes I feel like I am cheating when I complete sets using Comc or Ebay, but with 2007 Masterpieces and having busted 26 1/2 cases I don't feel that way at all.  here is why.  You get 5-7 pinots per case.  Even at the low end that is 132 cards minimum.  There are only 90 in the set for pete's sake. 

As many of you know I have been collecting these for 3 years. I scour all of the online sources.  I have posted on countless message boards and you know I don't low ball people.  Well maybe in the beginning, but let's be honest.  Offering .75-1.25 for a card that is of a no name parallel these days is not low ball really.

Anyway, I have been down to Chase Utley #33 for a long time.  Not a big dollar card, not a high demand card.  In fact there have been no less than 10 of the Deep Blue Linen /75 counterpart on ebay.  Well tonight I was doing one of my hourly searches on Comc when this showed up for $3.



It's funny how this works.  All of the cards I need with the exception of 5 I have never seen on ebay.  One I screwed up bidding, and 4 went for way more than a half way sane person would pay.  I know someone has these cards somewhere.  Any help?
