Posted By: <b>Scott Sarian</b><p>AWESOME! Thanks for posting all of the scans as well!<br /><br />You've got a very impressive set, in great condition as well. I had tried to go for the set at one point but once I got to 15 or so cards, realized it was going to be a big undertaking, and put it on the backburner. So this is great to see a completed set. Nice work!<br /><br />Scott

Posted By: <b>JW</b><p>Joe,<br />Nice set. Did you pick up the rest raw or did you pick up one of Mike's extra sets? Either way, nice job.<br />Jason<br />

Posted By: <b>Joe D.</b><p>Jason....<br /><br />Overall - I believe half of my copes set or so was picked up raw through eBay.<br /><br />I picked up a few more through other collectors (going by memory).... maybe 5 or so.<br /><br />I won a set with Mike (a low grade set) and we split up cards.<br /><br />I also upgraded a bunch of cards through purchasing / trades with Mike<br />(I obtained both raw and graded cards from Mike)<br /><br /><br />I think I have like 5 or 6 different card extras....<br />maybe I should start set 2 <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><br /><br />If I may give an eBay'ish recommendation....<br /><br />Mike D was awesome throughout the transactions. Top notch.<br /><br />He gets high recommendations from me.

Posted By: <b>JW</b><p>Joe,<br /><br />So what are your plans now? Are you going to focus on anything else golf related? Are you going to continue to upgrade the set, when possible? I still need a #2 Tom Morris card, so if you come across an extra one, please keep me in mind. I don't want you to start hoarding them! I know Mike still has at least one, but it is tied up in his extra set.<br /><br />Mike D. and I have done a number of transactions over the last couple of years, and they have all gone smooth. I too would recommend him.<br /><br />Later,<br />Jason

Posted By: <b>Joe D.</b><p>Jason,<br /><br />Admittedly - #2 Old Tom might be my favorite golf card of all golf cards.<br /><br />I am sure I would bid if I saw another one come available.....<br />but, especially if it is not an upgrade for me, I don't mind stepping aside for you - just email me ahead of time.<br /><br />I have stepped aside many times for many people. The only situation that bothers me is when I am asked to step aside - and the other person does not bid nearly as strong as I would have and he does not win the card. Then - neither of us get the card. <img src="/images/sad.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><br />Regards,<br />Joe
