One-Card Challenge ... Complete

Earlier this month, the Night Owl blogged about his desire to finish off sets that needed just one card. He called it The One-Card Challenge.

I had a card that I was trying to find from the 1994 Ted Williams Card Company Negro League subset.

1994 Ted Williams Card Company
John "Buck" O'Neil (card # 109)

Reader Jim came through for me.  Not only did Reader Jim send the "Buck" O'Neil card he also sent me an upgrade.  I first picked this card up in the early 1990s at a card and comic shop in the western suburbs of Chicago.
1989 "Out of the Blue" Book Promo Card
Orel Hershiser

Two and a half years ago, the Night Owl sent me another copy.  Now I've got three of them sitting around collecting dust. 

Thanks, Reader Jim.  You've filled a hole in my binder.

Truly, someone wants to trade me for some of my extra Hershisers.  Anyone?


  1. I would love one of those Hershiser cards for my sample collection !
    I'll see if I have anything you are interested in.
