Default MY QUEST: 600 Marvin Williams 05-06 SPx Winning Materials

WELL GUYS, I have "only" found 83 more of these since August of 2010...in .. 2+ years ! (must be some hoarder out there )

Up to 583 now

I am thinking that 600 will be the last hundred mark that I hit....

So I wanted to take a sec and thank everyone AGAIN that has helped along the way....

I have had a ton of collections over the years... different PC's, MJ, KOBE, AARON BROOKS,
ROCKETS, ASTROS, TEXANS, ANDRE JOHNSON ETC ETC ETC....BOXING (currently) , but THIS
is the collection I always stuck with because it just got INSANE lol...

SO thanks to all of you... on this site and all of the sites that I have been on over the years...
just a ridiculous collection... not even sure why I started it really LOL... thought the card was cool...
was a UNC fan etc etc... it's been fun though.


KEEP THEM COMING ! I bought a few recently on ebay... found a few on COMC...
and actually picked 1 or 2 up here via trades/sales recently.

THANKS AGAIN FOR CONTRIBUTING TO THE INSANITY LOL!

UPDATE: Well guys, I met my "GOAL" of 500!!! (in August of '10) and got Collector of the Month on Upper Deck.com


Upper Deck Collector of the Month: Adam Malin | Upper Deck Blog



UPDATE: WELL GUYS, I met my "GOAL" of 400 !!! (in August of '08) I have gotten these from ALL over the world, France, Hong Kong,
China, Japan, Australia, The Netherlands, Canada, Spain, Phillipines, ALL over America, and I get my last one from a guy in NEW YORK
on and Aussie website LOL go figure LOL


THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT has TRADED, SOLD, or even GIVEN one of these cards to me....this CRAZY, ODD, WEIRD INSANE
collection has taken on a life of its own and I get messages and emails from complete strangers telling me they see one on
ebay or in someone's "bucket" or tradelist... and I have appreciated ALL the help....
so I decided 400? nah, what the heck.... lets not stop there !

I didn't think I would get there because I thought these had all dried up....(gee i wonder why) BUT I am at 473 right now ...

so bring on...

!!!!~500~!!!!

here's the pic of the 400 (20 rows of 20) THANKS AGAIN GUYS!



THE QUEST CONTINUES!!!!


LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ONE or KNOW ANYONE WHO DOES THANKS !

been asked that question MANY TIMES...


had a discussion with UD a long time ago and they stated then and continue to state that they do not release print runs of un-numbered cards

I had a few people out there throw numbers out anywhere from 500 (which obviously isnt right now) all the way to 1600.... based on odds.. amount of cards in the set etc etc... but I dont imagine there are the same Marvin Williams as there are Michael Jordan, or Lebron, etc etc so those numbers have to be a bit off as well, then again.. could be... who knows?

answer....

your guess is as good as anyones

I mean, I still like the guy.. but sadly didnt live up to the "hype" he has coming out as a #2 pick in the draft

But to be fair, he was a 6th man in college.. was never a starter so maybe that high of a pick and all the hype was unfair or unwarranted


either way.. I liked the card.. liked him.. and hell.. he's still in the league...

good enough for me HA !

Yea, I had 57 of Aaron Brooks (Rockets/Suns) Exquiste Rookies /225 so that was just over 25% and I thought that was nuts...

This collection just gets more and more out of hand LOL

I think they only book like $10 now.. used to be $15.. then down to $12

I have gotten MOST of them for .99-$3 at most... a few I paid more for... there are certain color variations that are rare

and yes.. I keep track of that too LOL .. it's a sickness I know
