I have been able to finish all the insert sets and issued test sets. Unissued test sets, like the 55 Stamps, 61 Dice, 66 Punch Out, 70 Cloth and 71 Artist Proofs will not be doable except for examples. The 60 and 77 proof cards listed in the Catalog, and the 3 unissued 51 Current All Stars are also a tad problematic

I prefer raw also. Although some stuff I will only buy graded (where authenticity is too hard to determine from a picture, like 1990 Donruss Aqueous)

While I break out many of the graded cards I buy, I agree it makes complete sense to not do so depending on the card.

I have a friend who sometimes posts here who is a dedicated graded post war collector, and I think he has most if not all of the Aqueous cards.

And Jim, ungraded cards are not "raw"', they are in their natural state :-)

Those Mylars are really nice; wonder why they never issued them?

I'm a sucker for space age materials in cards. 3-D, Mylar, acetate, foil, whatever. The more ingenious the use the more interesting I find it.

My guess Adam is that it was production costs against likely sales. They did not repeat the 68 3D experiment again until 2011 as a small subset of their Lineage line. I know they have the 3Ds out again this year, again on a limited basis.
