I already spotted some to pick up next month including the mccovey, stargell, conigliaro and yaz!!! best part is the guy sells them to me for like 5 bucks each lol

Oh man, $5 Venezuelan Yaz, McCovey, Stargell or Conigliaro . . . that is awesome!!!

I've noticed that Dave has been bumping up the prices on those Venes. He's probably figured out that he's a pretty good hub to find them. I know I paid more than I wanted for the cards I purchased from him, but they are hard to find so I was willing to pay it.

I contacted John Rumierz to see if he can be of any additional help, so thanks for that tip!

Are you a member of the Topps Venezuela Yahoo Group? I haven't been involved much there, but it's another good place to do some networking.

Yeah, I think Dave has bumped up the cost quite a bit because those are the last VZ's he has with no new suppliers in sight. His main supplier in Venezuela, a gentleman named Enrique, now sells through eBay and directly whenever he flies up the the states. He's become my main resource and I mostly buy offline from him.

As for John, I've been eyeing some of his rarer Latin issues. He definitely has many unique cards all the way around.

I have joined Yahoo group and it has a lot of great and expert info there.

Thanks for the note and I'll keep you posted on any Twins I might come across.

Great to hear and big congrats.

Do you ever see any really old Venezuelan cards from the 20s, 30s and 40s at these shows? The oldest I've ever seen for sale are from the 30s but can't recall the name of the manufacturer.

Wow, very nice! You are nearing the finish line for a set where there are very, very few completed ones. Huge accomplishment to even get to this point. I am down to needing only 27 cards to complete my 66 set myself. I've made a couple of connections through this forum in case you haven't seen it. There are some local Venezuelan members which may be able to help you. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/toppsvenezuela/ Keep me posted on your progress and happy hunting.

Wow youre almost done with the 66 set as well!! hope you can finish it off quickly!!! Thanks for the group link, I requested the administrator so that I can join it. Ill keep posting my finds but things get a little more difficult now with 22 to go, Im missing the Mantle, Banks, Mays, Yaz, Killebrew and Mccovey along with 5 of the Era, pitching, batting, rbi leaders and also the AL Bombers card with Mantle so thats 12 that can be harder to find. The other 10 I think i can spot quickly.

By the way, if you want let me know which cards you need. I will be going to a card show next sunday and maybe I can find a few and send them via dhl or something. I think ive seen some 66s there.
