Default It may be time to part...

Sadly I may be saying goodbye to my Treasury Mini Logoman set. It has been a great chase but it has gotten expensive and quite boring knowing that I will probably only be getting a couple every year. Here are some final scans:














I will not be getting out of collecting, I will just be selling off the set.

If anyone has any SERIOUS paypal offers for the entire set, please PM me. I am not looking to break up the set at this time.

Thanks,
Andrew

Don't get discouraged!!!

My advice is to put these cards away and forget about them for awhile.

The fire will start burning again and if you sell them now you will regret it!!!

Hope you change your mind!

I really don't want to just put all of the $$ that went into these away and forget about them as I am eyeing a new type of collection and these Treasury Logomen just don't appeal to me that much anymore.

I wonder if the influx of new logoman's put out by Panini has discouraged you so much that you want to sell these amazing cards? I know you've been disturbed by the amount of logoman's appearing in Panini's products, and it can't help the value of your very cool collection, and I wonder if that has something to do with this? You sound very discouraged.

Have you given yourself a week to think about it? That collection is amazing dude. Truly one of a kind.

I for one hate to see you give up on this set as well.

There are very few sets out there that I enjoy seeing, and this is one of my favorites. I hope you change your mind and continue on with your quest. I agree with others that I believe you will regret it, and this is coming from one rare set collector to another.

So did you appear in the latest issue of Beckett basketball? I don't know as I haven't picked one of these up in 4 years.

i agree with everyone else! put them away and think it over , before deciding for good! even tho the master set may never finish, i'ts still an incredible feat already! and i doubt you'll be able to sell the entire set off for nearly the price that you'd want. i would imagine you have a better chance selling each individually and let some go into bidding wars IMO

you know what you can do to try to liven up your collection?? host a case break. i think blowout still has cases left (i know they have boxes left). right now is a very good time to do case breaks of 08/09 , with kevin love coming on strong after big Al left, and then beasley becoming the (default necessary) go-to scorer for the twolves. westbrook is continuing his improvement and so is eric gordon. 6 of the top 7 rookies are very collectible right now. you host it, then after team randoms, buy a team or two from the ppl who own the teams that have the logoman that you still need (ie Rockets/Yao or Mavs/Dirk) and let the fun begin. even if you dont buy any teams, at least the chance is there that a logoman gets unearthed in one of those sealed cases. hell, i would host it myself if i ever get a camera lol

Yes, I was in Beckett Basketball even though I asked them if they would put me in a later issue. They did not even provide any contact information so it was pretty much pointless.

Can't do a case break because I am not 18 yet.

That is top secret

To everyone:
I have been thinking about this a lot for the past week or so and still haven't changed my mind. I really feel and hope that I will not regret it and that my new collection will be much better and satisfy me much more.

This was a lost cause from the start. You can't possibly collect all the 1/1s. You should sell now as those cards still have some value.

This is by FAR one of the most original and rare card sets ever produced. To have come as far as you have and to give up and sell them I think is ludicrous. Youre only going to think the same thing with the next set when you get this far and the pace slows to molasses. DONT DO IT.

I think he is right, there is no way in the world that he will ever get them all. Who knows how many are sitting there in unopened boxes on some warehouse or dealers shelf. or what about the guy who does get one but then just puts it in his collection, not knowing there is some guy trying to complete the set. Also once he got down to the last 2 or 3 and people found out about him, could you imagine what they would ask price wise??

It is an awesome set so far but I believe he has the right idea, I don't even want to imagine how much he has spent so far.

Good luck with whatever you choose to take up in the future!!

Its true that people will want ridiculous amounts if they know you need their card. In fact people have been doing that to you the whole time haven't they? You should move on to the next one because this was doomed from the start. On your next set, be sure not to tell everyone how bad you need the cards and don't show anyone your progress until the set is complete. Going low key will be your best bet. Sorry about the awesome Logoman set but follow your gut, cut your loses and move forward.

That is the thing with 1\1 set building, you only have to come across one person who wont sell and thats it. Its almost like they make the decision for you. It sucks when someone else has all the leverage.
