Default Need Help with Okung Collection!

Dear Fellow BO Forum Dwellers, my wife and I have run into some difficulty finding the remaining cards for our OCD collection of the oft-injured but always "on-the-verge-of-greatness-if-he-could-stay-on-the-field" LT for the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Okung.

We have, I believe, all but 2 of the non 1/1 cards of his. We need help finding those last three cards as well as locating the 1/1's if possible. I know where several are, including the Contenders 1/1 auto which will never be dislodged from the championship ticket seahawks contenders collector.


Without further ado:

Panini Gridiron Gear Platinum O's #237 /25 (Retail)
Score Artist's Proof #385 /32 (Retail)

Our collection is pretty extensive, including the Chrome Super, Sterling Super, 1/1 NT Auto, and a ton of other rare cards and plates.

Comments welcome, and we'd genuinely appreciate any help or leads. This has been quite a fun / taxing adventure in collecting over the past several years, and now every pickup means a great deal to us. Thanks in advance!
Aaron

Well, our
Quote:
oft-injured but always "on-the-verge-of-greatness-if-he-could-stay-on-the-field"
player finally had a healthy season, and was voted a starter in the pro bowl. Pretty awesome stuff. When your main personal collection is of an offensive lineman, it doesn't really get much better than this! (Of course, I'd take a Seahawks SB victory instead...)

Still looking for 1/1's and these last 3 non 1/1 cards:
Crown Royale Autographs Green #181 /10 (May be stamped "No Autograph")
Panini Gridiron Gear Platinum O's #237 /25 (Retail)
Score Artist's Proof #385 /32 (Retail)

This card is funny...



Edit: I see a few more. Panini had trouble getting Trent Williams to sign, I see.

Yeah unfortunately there are quite a few cards Okung didn't sign either. I have about 8 Richard dent autographs as replacements. The funny thing is how much people want to sell the NO AUTOGRAPH stamped cards for (in some instances, quite a bit more than the ACTUAL autographed cards), even when they are getting 'replacements'

Also, if someone wants 8 Richard dent autos lemme know, haha

Great Okungs brotha! Glad he's finally starting to realize his potential, he's been playing out of his mind this year, along with much of our line. Go Hawks.

Thanks guys

In my limited time playing football (grew up playing water polo), I played DT and LOT. I love the mechanics and perceived simplicity of the position. Additionally, I was born in Seattle and live in minneapolis. I thought these two guys were going to be great when they were in college, and the best LT's tend to stay with their teams for a long, long time. (No pun intended with Jake Long, heh). Plus, what other player can you grab all of their cards, tons of 1/1's, and not break the bank? They may not appreciate in value much, but that's not the point of this collection anyway.

Nice stuff. I tore my meniscus playing rugby, then decided to "retire" to preserve my professional career that offer is, in fact, mine. This card was relisted and I've already offered in the same neighborhood as the chrome super auto, which sadly I missed. I did get that cool nfl logo shield from the draft day hat and I really want the prizm finite auto to finish the triple finite rainbow!

Hi!
I see you must be the person that I was bidding against in 2010-11 for all of the Okung cards on Ebay. Glad to see they made it in to good hands.
Sorry to say I don't have any of the 3 that you are looking for, and I wish you the best of luck with that.
I'm wondering how you feel after all of those cards came back from Panini with the "no autograph" stamp. I was so pissed I never bought another Okung card to this day, and didn't buy another Panini redemption until just recently.
Been actually thinking about offloading the Okung collection.
Anyway, again, good luck.

I'm not sure if the no autograph stamp or the exquisite TBD redemption upset me more. I had so many stupid friggin redemptions never filled... It's so frustrating. I don't want equal value replacements since the cards aren't worth much... Except to me

If you're looking to offload, I may be interested. I've got so, so many of Okungs cards, that I really just want to finish getting all the non 1/1's, and possibly add to the 50% of the 1/1's I do own. I guess it depends on the cards and price.

Awesome collection! Actually, I may have some interest in one of your Dent autos. Let me know what you'd want for one. Thanks!

$20 finders fee for anything leading to me securing these last two cards.

I'd really love to finish this off
