Amazing! Great story!

Maybe you should find that same friend and have him tell you that you'll "never find" those last few remaining items!

Are the latest postings recently acquired?

Can I ask what you are missing?

Wow, how weird that Parody Press went so far with their parodies that they actually created a parody card set to mock Defiant's Plasm set. Neat find! There's a couple on eBay if anyone else wants one.

THANKS for the tip, Joe !!!

DONE... I've been waiting for a nice deal on a set of these. Jim showed me his card set of these and they are a sweet addition to any Warriors of Plasm collection.

I am glad that we are seeing a bit of activity in the DU section here lately.

I'm not sure what cards those are hanging on the wall, but they look cool.

The holofoil ones are the chase cards to the Plasm (Warriors of Plasm) trading card set. They belong to the Plasm cards that make up the Plasm Zero issue (as a card set and later released in an issue or Previews negating the need to have the card set).

Other cards appear to be commons. (I don't have my glasses on to verify)

I love both of these pieces. The painted piece suddenly takes on SO MUCH depth with the colors. I mean it is expected to do that but my preference is painted art opposed to colors that are used in today's field.
