YSL two down, two to go...

I've been able to track down two of the YSL jersey cards I've needed on eBay. The Elston Howard has shown up a lot more than it had in the past. But I have to say "Sweet Lou" has certainly eluded me. I dropped a lot more money on him than I ever expected while I got a really good deal on the Howard (which also included another Howard jersey card from 2008 SP Legendary Cuts.

So that leaves me with two Yankee Stadium Legacy jersey cards: Joe Pepitone and.....

the Sultan of Swat, the Colossus of Clout the Great Bambino....


That auction is already over $160 with 6 days left. While it would be nice to knock out the hardest card to get from that set, I don't think I can drop $200-400 on a relic card.

So I'll try to concentrate my efforts on Joe Pepitone. I've seen him show up on eBay a few times but I think he might be rarer than Lou Piniella.

This has been a real treasure hunt but it's difficult not owning the most expensive piece in the collection. Still, I'm sure I'll own it one of these days. Til then I'll just have to concentrate on the next to last card.
