Today I received several packages, three of which were cards from my Top 10 Most Wanted, and the third presented a problem.
Let's start with the positives:
2. 2004 Upper Deck Going Deep Gold. Technically the gold was not on my Wantlist, but I am counting it because it is a better-looking card. The bat piece has quite a bit etched into it and it is numbered out of just 50. After I bought the card, I changed #5 on my Most Wanted List to the gold version. I will consider this captured.
Now, for the problem:
I ordered a 2002 Upper Deck 40-Man Electric parallel of Alomar off of the Beckett Marketplace. Unfortunately, when it arrived, it was the base card. I have contacted the seller to see what we could do and I will hopefully get a positive resolution. If he does not have the parallel version, I am very concerned because I may not see one for a long time. I hate not getting a card I am expecting, it is my collecting pet peeve.
I now have two new entries onto my Most Wanted List, including the card I did not receive. The other one is the black refractor of Alomar's 2002 Topps Chrome Traded card with the Rockies.
