About this set: I've been putting together this set for the past 3 1/2 years, and it has been a thrill and a joy...I've never attempted anything so daunting and yet rewarding in this hobby...completing this rare set in such good condition makes me feel like once you set your mind to something, it can happen in this hobby...I look forward to my next challenge, but I'll always be buying and selling these cards, they are addictive...once that rainbow flash gets to you, it's over! I grew up watching every player in this set, it is so nostalgic to me, I'll cherish it forever...
