yes, the chase is nice, but many sets are tough to put together consistently, and there should be a premium for the effort when finished.
You might be right on the T3s but I would be a bit surprised. I am putting together a very well centered T205 set, which if you have looked at enough T205s, you know is not an easy task. If I sold the whole thing (I probably will when I am through, except Cobby) I doubt I sell it as a set. To me it's not a lot different than the T3 set in that respect. Just not enough collectors looking to buy a whole set. It would probably be bought by a dealer to break it up as that is usually the best way to maximize your return on investment.

ps.. Same thinking goes for subsets too.

mile high has only 79 cards (and no boxers). i wouldn't call that near complete, but that is me...misleading. for what its worth, most of the "set vs individual cards" auction "contests" that have been done in hockey at Classic have gone in favor of the sets. not sure that means much as that format lends itself to the set bids i think, since people (like me) feel like its often useless to get worked up pursuing an individual card or several when that won't matter possibly. not a fan of the format. make a decision and go with it!

This is along the lines of what I was thinking. Say a Hindu Brown SL set of all 34 cards, or an Old Mill SL set of all 48. Something not unobtainable, but not a quick collection either. What if they were all graded the same? Say PSA 4 or SGC 5 or whatever. Every single one the exact same grade. I think that would bring a premium as well.
