Default Poor Manís E103 Journey

There have been several journeyís documented in regards to set building, so I thought I would begin to set mine down. I started the E103 Williams set without realizing I was doing so when I bought my first one (Davy Jones, before he was in the Monkees) several years ago from another board member. I picked another common up later and then one of the big three for the set (Christy Mathewson, cause I named my second born after him). After that, I guess I got hooked and have been picking them up here and there from auctions, eBay, and board members. I appreciate those who have contributed and look forward to keeping this string going til I hit number 30.

Feel free to post any insights or thoughts about the set.

Without further ado, here are my first 8, and when my next two arrive I shall post them as well!

Nice start to the set, David. Those look like nice, fairly consistent cards for the set you are building. What could be fun is to upgrade when you can but only on looks, not on grade . As I always say, the hunt is a lot of the fun. Good luck with the rest of the set.

And thanks for having my back, some time ago, when Roger N got all huffy and said I was stealing you as a customer at a show. He acted like a maroon that day.

Great looking set! Thanks for sharing. But don't you think that they would look so much better in a binder?

Default E103 glut on ebay

I was thinking about this set just the other night - I always assumed they are rare but look at all the ones on ebay right now - two separate lots each containing more than half the set, plus a bunch of singles (all at v. high prices, of course). Last I checked there were 5 copies of the elusive Bob Wood card for sale!

Is this just a fluke or has some kind of sell-off taken place?

Wonderful cards, David. Owning the Bender (in any condition) is one of my elusive hobby goals.
