For the right price, it's tough to beat a solid NM-84. Those are solid.

Tom, I gave him a call on Sunday and he had family over so I asked if it would be ok to meet with him this weekend. He said that would be great so were going to have coffee and discuss cards. He seems really excited to look at my set so im going to "lug" all the SGC graded set i have so far over to his house for him to look at.

He was mentioning on the phone that he had thought of submitting to SGC but never has. Im going to show him how this weekend if he wants to. Seems like a very nice man and still excited to see his collection.

Rather than lug it all, if it were me, I'd just take one example of each graded slab, from 10 to 98, to show grade differentials. Also a handful of duplicate raw cards to show him how they might grade. Maybe you can trade dups?

To my followers of my set. Going to scrub this weekend and add notes etc and hopefully work on better pics. This set, as you know, means alot to me so i want it to look good. If you see it removed don't think im out on the set becuase im certainly not.

Hoping to meet with a the collector here in town this weekend as well so should have some good raw pics if possible.
