Jimmy sent me a 1992-93 Fleer Ultra “Ultra Imports” card of Arturs Irbe. I’ve needed this card for almost 20 years, so it is great to finally fill that last pocket in the page. I now have every base and insert card in the 1992-93 Fleer Ultra set.
Kazi completed my 2010-11 Score Playoff Heroes insert set. Mike Richards was the last card I needed, and though I only needed this card for a bit over a year, it is still greatly appreciated.
Tim B. gave me a 2008-09 Biography of a Season card of Mats Sundin. I tried putting this set together during that season, but Upper Deck did not send my local card shop all of the cards. Thus, I had to track down a good portion of these via trades. I’m glad I can put this one to rest, too.
There is one week left in the One-Card Challenge–still plenty of time to hook each other up with that pesky “last card” to finish off our sets. Mail sent within the U.S. takes about 3 days to deliver; mail between the U.S. and Canada takes about 5 to 7 days. This means that you can still send and receive cards before the deadline, which is this upcoming Saturday night.
Captain Canuck is still in the lead with 6 points. Kazi and Jimmy are in a tie for second place with 4 points each. But it is still anyone’s game. Remember, a card sent to me gets you a goal and an assist. A card sent to another collector gets you a goal, and receiving a card gets you an assist. Check the contest thread to see if anyone has posted a card you have. Or post a card you need–maybe someone has it.
Even if you don’t win, you can still help a collector get that feeling of satisfaction from finishing off a set.
