Huge Update to my project with needs broke down
I DO HAVE SOME PAYPAL READY FOR SOMETHING I NEED. I MAINLY WANNA GET PRIOROTY #1 & 2 DONE AT THE MOMENT.
As many of you know I am working on a lifetime on card auto project. The project consists of many players I have seen play in my life, and most of which have at some point been All-Stars or KC Royals past and present.
The project has now crossed the 1000 mark and my goal by the end of 2012 is to reach 1050. I am actually pushing hard for this to have the holiday months off.
I am willing to trade down on anything in the project if I get the same player back and add something. The project is not about value for me but more about acquiring the player.
Here are the requirements to make it as a project card.
* On card auto, Sweet Spot, SP or Finest Letter, True Cut or Perez Steele auto for older players
* No stickers unless the player has nothing else available
* White index cuts okay on some of the high-dollar guys as long as auto is all visible
* IP or TTM autos only of those with no "pack pulled" copies available
* IP or TTM must come from reputable source for later authentication
* Avoiding brands like Best, Just, etc unless noted or a big name player
Again this is a LIFE TIME project.
Here is my progress so far.

Here is the list of players yet to acquire. There is names being added daily. Some I have researched and those have notes. Others have notes if there are stipulations for them to make the project.
The All-Star list and IP/TTM list are priority and the HOF/Legends list and Specific Uniform List will be last priority. Don't get me wrong though I need them all.
The cards in bold are cards I hope to acquire by the end of the year.
