Let's Talk About Sets Volume 5

Let's talk about sets baby
Let's talk about it with me
Let's talk about all the good things
And the bad things that may be
Let's talk about sets (for many years of it)
Let's talk about sets (multiples)
Let's talk about sets (Uh huh)
Let's talk about sets....

1991 song by Salt-N-Pepa was about a much different topic than I am turning it into. You see, I am staying on topic with cards. Not,well, what they were talking about. This newest segment about the 90's will focus on my set chases (the ones I have already used for a Origins Post or don't plan on using) and new additions to them along with updates on how far I have gotten.

It's time for us to sit down and have that discussion between your parents and you that you tried to avoid. You know, that conversation you have with them about the Flairs and the Pinnacles. Kids, it's time to Talk About Sets.

So grab a chew on some Fruit Stripes, just remember it may take the entire pack to have enough flavor to make it through this post, and check these out.

My buddy @CardpocalypseNC has been a huge help in my set chasing so far going to shows and finding needs and looking at his own collection to help as well. He has so far helped me knock a few sets down and has helped me take some numbers off as well.

Today's post is from awhile back but is a mixture of set help I received from him. As always, I am up and ready to get set help in trades.

Here is some of the dirty naughty trade set help he sent,

1995 Fleer NFL Prospects with it's groovyness

Skybox Impact Same Game More Attitude of Trent Dilfer

I am so so close on this 1995 Skybox Paydirt set. A dream since 1995.

Upper Deck Rock Solid

Hardwood Leaders from 1995 Flair basketball. A set I once owned but lost over the years. Would love to have this one knocked down too.

More of those Credit Cards from 1995 Studio!

1996 Sp Special Fx baseball set help. I didn't collect this one growing up but holograms have their way with me.

Well, that's it for today's Sets Talk. Hopefully I have enticed you to take a look at your own Sets life and make some decisions on ways to improve or add more Sets to your life.


  1. Wow. That Rock Solid insert is shiny! Don't remember seeing those before. But I'm a huge fan of the SP Special FX inserts. It'd be cool to one day try to build that set.

    1. I will have to show off more of those Rock Solids then!

  2. I loved More Attitude, Paydirt, and Hardwood Leaders back in the day, though I never had many.

    1. Too bad you still didn't have them for me to acquire!

  3. Looks like Tim has been going through the same kind of dime boxes that I usually come across!

    1. So I should ask you to keep an eye out for things like this as well :)
