Doug Atkins helped me get enough cases of the highs & the lows to build about 400 sets for the two of us combined. I thought I was through with them in 1998 or 1999 and gave all my extras to the Principal at my former middle school to give away. It was probably 3 full monster boxes of various numbers. In 2016 I was tasked with the disposal of his collection which contained a bunch of extras from the set. I have done my best to assist others that are setting on near completed sets and still have 2000 to 3000 of extras. .....What part of the tri-cities? I lived in Jonesborough from 1978 thru 1986, in Davy Crockett Sub Division, just west of 5 Points.
Refer to eBay item 233650514008 for similar pictures of what I have remaining. I do not currently have a set listed for sale. This item will ship tomorrow, so the listing might not be viewable after that. I have 11 sets left of the boxed and 3 sets left of the booked.
This thread brought back great memories. I don't think I have all 294, but I'm gonna look. I do have a Doug Atkins signed print of him in uniform, he was such a great guy! I would love to see a list of the 294 greatest Vols, if anyone has a list.
So, I am still here sitting on ready to help other Vol Fans to complete their sets. I also want to hear from members that have batches of extra cards they need to part with. I am also awaiting a mailing address from member orangefloyd for the #290 he needs to complete. It will come to him at no charge if he or she will provide a mailing address.
ButchPlz, have you got a full set? They were very hard to build and I think the only complete sets were the ones the printer sent to the featured players who signed cards for them. If you have a ton of extras, I would be open to a offer to buy!
At this time I wouldn't. There is just something romantic about a box of unopened cards to me. I even have boxes of Topps and Upper Deck baseball cards from the late 80s/early 90s that I would not part with either. This is part of my retirement collection, so I am going to hold onto them all for the next 10-15 years as they can only go up in value I hope.
