Default Too Hard?

I'm trying to think of fun and somewhat challenging auto, refractor, gu, or other "rare" sets. I was thinking of doing one or maybe two of the following-

Any insight, tips, advice, stories or partial or cards in the sets would be helpful.

- 2011 Topps 60 auto set: this looks pretty hard considering some of the autos include a-rod and other mvp's

- 2011 Topps Leather Nameplate Set: This set excites me; but will it be too hard?

- 2008 Bowman Chrome Base Auto Set: Expensive

- 2010 Topps Finest Atomic Refractors Set: Relatively easy, and very cheap

- 2010 Topps Chrome Green Refractor Set: Looks fun!! Very interested in attempting; already have the Heyward and Ruth

- 2010 Topps Finest Football Rookie Auto Patch Set: Expensive, but and interesting and probably pretty valuable set

Any other set ideas or suggestions??

Thanks
CJ

The Ginter mini master set is a major PITA, but it's a lot of fun.

I agree it should be fun.. but does master mean black parallels too?

I know of somebody working on the manufactured bat barrel set from 2010 Update, they are numbered to 99 each and I think there are 175 in the set

I'm doing the 2010 regular back, Ginter back, black borders and all insert minis. I'd also like to get the Bazooka backs and NNOs. Without the Bazookas and NNOs, I'm about 150 cards away.

Means no number. These cards do not have a card number on them. I believe they are hand numbered to 50.

I think a cool set to do would be the 2011 Topps Tribute Past Time Patches..these cards are absolutely gorgeous and all of the patches are actually "prime"..they are a little pricey, but theres only 15-20 players in the set so if you have some money to spend it could be reasonable...just a thought

Correctamundo, but 2010 NNOs aren't hand numbered. Only the Bazooka backs (/25).

Thanks Tyler. I knew 2009's were hand numbered, but wasn't sure about 2010. I didn't pull any.
