Emmitt is the holy grail of the set being that it's numbered to 10.

No... I just think it's neat that it comes across with smiley faces, so I wanted to join in on the fun.

Good luck with your search though. This set looks real pretty.

That's why I wished you luck! I've seen at least 10 people on this forum alone trying to collect this set. I love the photography, especially the Barry. It looks like his eyes are about to shoot laser beams out of them lol. Even I will give panini tons of props on this very well done set.

That other Emmitt that disappeared last week, or so, off the 'bay was one of the last chances that anyone had of completing this.

I wonder what the Emmitt is actually worth. I am interested in getting one since I PC Emmitt but I cant see myself paying $650 for something that is /10. Some of Emmett's 1/1 autos dont even go for $650.

Set collectors be cray. I was watching a Ronnie Lott a month or so back at auction and was blown away when it ended around $150 dlvd (if I remember correctly). Just wanted a nice Ronnie for my d PC but didn't happen that day

Edit: If a few serious buyers collecting this set get into it over and emmitt /10 I can easily see one going for $600+. Just one of those cards that more than a few people need to have and are probably getting desperate for at this point. It's now 2 1/2 years from release.

There's still one chance to grab one on eBay. I know at least 5 are in collections that won't move for a long time, mine being one of them. There are 3-4 copies that haven't been spoken for or may still be lurking in unopened boxes. Either way, it's one hell of a tough card to track down.

I wish someone would buy the one sitting on eBay so the guy would split his set up and sell me the last 4 I need for mine. Haha

Agree. I've paid crazy prices for SP's on sets I'm doing. Think I paid like $400 for the Rod Woodson SP out of legends in 2011 so emmitt /10 I can see easily going 650-700.

f it's a popular set which this one seems to be

Well I already paid $650 for mine about a week ago! Pretty sure I've bought the most expensive Emmitt yet

I think $650 was a very fair price for that card and not a reach at all. As more of the endless garbage continues to fill the market, cards like these just become more valuable since they just disappear into PCs and never show up. I was actually amazed that 2 hit at the same time. I have to check my set checklist and see if I had these 2 serial numbers noted. Anyone waiting, hoping, is running short on time to find one. I believe 6 or 7 are in the hands of people with, or working on, the complete set and/or a Cowboys PC now. There may be only 1 or 2 left or unaccounted for and just have never been posted by who pulled them.
