I lost out on a card last night that I wanted. It was a 1998 Leaf Rookies and Stars Longevity parallel numbered to 50. It does not seem like the kind of card to be too hard to find. But this was the first one I had seen, at least since focusing on my Alomar collection. I don't recall having this much trouble finding this parallel for my Jason Varitek collection. And as I recall, I did not spend much on it when I got the Varitek. I should have done my homework. I should have checked to find out that for some reason these parallels are going for quite a bit of money. I have no idea why. So I set a snipe, but my snipe was not enough to win. And I missed out on a nice card. It's very disappointing. Hopefully another one will show up soon. If anyone out there has this card or knows someone who has it, please contact me. I would love to work something out for one. Also, if anyone has any of the cards in my Needs List, please let me know.
