A “White Whale” Missed

Any collector can tell you what their “white whales” are in their collection.  Some of those cards may have been caught, and some might still be floating around in that big ocean of cards called eBay.  

As many of you know, one of my collections is targeted towards the Miami Dolphins perfect 17-0 season.  One of the most important players from that season was the Super Bowl MVP Jake Scott.  I was lucky to discover a few years ago that he has an autographed card in the 2005 Topps All-American set, which is an SP #’ed/44.  I got even luckier when one finally popped-up for sale and I was able to get a good deal on it.  But there is one card of his that I would love to add to my collection and for some reason I always miss it when one goes up for auction.  This would be his 2002 Topps Ring of Honor autograph.  The Ring of Honor set is very popular and showcases MVP’s from all the Super Bowls.  The Jake Scott autograph from this set is one of the most popular, probably because its one of a few autographed cards to feature him in a Dolphins uniform.  I have seen these sell for over $500.00, but thats not the case here.  This card is one of my “white whales” that hasn’t been caught yet.  

What are your “white whales”?
