Luck strikes again!  I jumped on CheckOutMyCards (COMC) to see if any new Duchscherer items had been listed and, lo and behold, the 2009 Upper Deck #795 Gold /99 was up there!  I quickly used my store credit to buy that card.  It is sitting in my online inventory, and I am debating whether to ship it out now or wait to purchase more cards to combine shipping.  I'd love to get the card in hand, but I'll probably wait a couple weeks to add some cards to the order.  There are a few Pete Maravich cards I will probably snatch up in the coming days.

The 2009 Upper Deck #795 Gold /99 brings my total to 191 of 221 non-1/1 cards!  I only update the actual counter, though, when I have the card in hand.  I don't want to jinx it, of course.  It's crazy that I'm already down to just 30 cards remaining.  Hopefully, this lucky streak continues and I can snatch up a few more before the end of the year.  My personal goal is to get to 90% (199 total) by next summer, so I'm hoping to stumble across one or two Duchscherer cards per month.

I'm still trying to make headway on the 2009 Topps Triple Threads (TTT) Logoman 1/1, along with a 2009 Topps Allen & GInter Mini Bazooka /25 and Mini No-Number /50 that I have found.  Still no response from those individuals, though.  The A&G cards may be hard to get due to the popularity of the set with the hardcore A&G collectors.  I'll get a scan up of the COMC card upon arrival.  I expect the 2009 TTT All-Star Patch card to be in hand by the weekend.  That will be an awesome mailday!
