Thanks. I am pretty excited. Pesky would be a good addition as one of The Teammates. The Little Professor too. Just need to be choosy to keep it to 25 cards.

More than likely this will be a long process both for the financial aspect and finding the "Right" cards. You will have to ask yourself if you are committed to it. Good Luck! And as the Chancellor says to Anakin in Star Wars...."And you, young phabphour20; we shall watch your career with great interest"
I am definitely going to go PSA all the way. I have a raw Yaz RC that I will send in. It won't grade well, but it will be a start.

Not sure if I'll ever be able to get a respectable Babe or Mick card, but we'll see. When I have extra money I'll try and get a key card or upgrade the existing ones.

Once I get myself organized I will update the OP with the final list and pics of what I have so far.

Thanks for the good luck wishes... I'll need it!
