  1. Good luck on finding #4... there's this guy (http://timwallach.blogspot.com/), and he's kind of cornered the market!

  2. If it's what I think it is, I might have that Jeff Parrett card you are looking for. I'll double check this week and get back with you.

  3. Adam, email me your address, and cross #3 OFF YOUR LIST.
