This is a list of individual cards I's really like to acquire. I've tried to include only 'reasonable wants'. I can't expect to come across an affordable Mantle rookie or a T206 Wagner.
1) A Sadaharu Oh Menko card.
2) 1958 Mickey Mantle All Star.
UPDATE: I have finally acquired this card. I'm pretty happy to have gotten it fairly cheaply.
3) An LBJ relic card. I've only seen two different types, both Goodwins, and some copies are reasonable. I'm a Johnson-ophile and I want one. I'd rather have an authentic autograph but they are out of sight and any affordable one is probably an autopen.
4) Jim Brown Rookie
5) 1963 Topps #412 Dodgers' Big Three.
I'm a Koufax collector and the Dodgers were always my NL team. Add John Podres, Don Drysdale and the Polo Grounds with the Upper Manhattan in the background. Very sweet. I just love this card and I keep trying to find a nice one at a reasonable price.
Update: I have one now in my collection. It isn't a 'nice one', in fact it has a couple of serious creases, but it's very presentable and was very reasonable.
Update: Done, Scored off eBay in October, 2012.
1961 Topps Wes Covington. I've called this 'Baseball Card Art'. Just a great card.
Update: Picked up a great copy in January, 2013
