The YSL set is almost done! Thanks to David K and LEONOFNJ and all of the other donators, the set need list is down to 715 cards. That is amazing considering how huge this set really is.

Please everyone, dig deep and donate so that we can donate a complete set to the auction. Remember, all of the proceeds are going to Cancer Research. This is a disease that affects all of us in one way or another. Please help us to help find a cure.

I think it will be great to completely drown Meliah in cards. :p

So come on all of you Benchies, let's get this thing done. You'll feel great about donating to a great cause, I promise.

Thanks,

I want to take some time to share a story now that I feel comfortable doing so.

Even though this was an important cause to me from the beginning, cancer hit close to home for me recently. On September 2nd, 2009 my uncle lost his short battle with cancer. His 51st birthday was the next day, but now you might be asking how this relates to sports cards.

My uncle was a devoted Detroit sports fan, even to the Lions, and also a card/autograph collector. Even in his last days he was rooting for the Tigers to make the playoffs! You could even ask him just about anything about the teams, and you might get caught up in a conversation with him forever.

I'm hoping that this helps the cause finish on a high note and gets those who haven't yet made a donation to do so. Nobody is safe from cancer, even us sports card collectors.

If you don't have any YSL cards, I'm participating in a Relay for Life at my campus on April 9th/10th and will appreciate your monetary gifts. Please PM me if you would like to help me out.

Thanks to all of those who've helped out so far.
-Zack

There is a lot of 415 YSL cards on sportslots right now.
Maybe you can ask to cross reference numbers and see if you can trade the seller prior to the lot going out?

It's over 90% now! that's great everyone, but let's get to 100%! If everyone gets just one card off of the needs list we'll get this thing done in no time.

Sorry if I missed it, but did me move the duplicates to put toward the needs?

Also, I still have 3 YSL dups, can they still be used? If so, I will send them to Matt.

Thanks,

Todd

Very sorry for your loss Todd. This disease affects everyone in some way.

Thanks all!

It's down to below 500 cards needed for the set. Please everyone, please go out and get just from our needs list and send it to Meliah. We are running out of time to get this thing completed before the auction.

Thanks,

When is the deadline for getting this done? When does the set go up for auction?
Also, does anyone have an idea as to how the cards were distributed--is the set randomnly distributed thru the different UD brands or are some of the cards in some brands (eg Upper Deck series 1 or 2, legendary cuts) and others in other brands (SpX, Piece of History, etc). Just wondering if I buy a box if I will have a chance of getting the cards we need now...

No real deadline, we had hoped to get it into next months ESPN radio auction though. The set goes to auction when it is complete. YSL cards were inserted into all 8 brands of 2008 UD products. Generally, the cards we are missing were in blocks inserted into higher end products as less of that may have been opened. Thanks for the help!

This set is now down to less than 400 cards until we can make a great donation. Please everyone, just one card from the list from all of our regular posters will get this finished up in no time. If you see any at your LCS or regular weekend show, grab a few for a buck and send them i to Meliah.
Cancer is a disease that affects all of us. Let's help to get the research done that is needed to fight this killer.
