** Please Help **

I only need two cards for a set that is approaching 10,000:

1998 Bryan Braves (non-perforated) - Kerry Ligtenberg;; and

2013 Nationals Inside Pitch Program Cards Ian Krol (22)

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I'm not currently selling anything, nor am I trading for anything other than the above cards.  I apologize, but there just isn't anything else I want/need. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What I collect:

● One card of every major league player since August 28, 1977.

Each player’s first “regular” major league card, including inserts and regionals, starting with his debut year.

   1)       First priority for each card: A 3½-inch-long single-player card, licensed or otherwise permitted to use MLB logos, which correctly identifies the player by a name he was then using, shows him in color in a major league or neutral uniform, and does not identify him as playing in a minor or other league.  Does not include game/contest cards, schedule cards, stickers, stamps, cards focused partly on a team or mainly on a particular game or event, or cards issued more than a dozen years before or after before the years they represent in this collection.

  • Each card must be from player’s major league debut year (or 1977 for players active in late 1977), if any such cards in this category exist.
  • Otherwise, the card must be from the first possible year after the player’s major league debut year (or 1977 for players active in late 1977), if any such cards in this category exist.
  • Otherwise, the card must be from the last possible year before the player’s major league debut year (or 1977 for players active in late 1977), if any such cards in this category exist.

   2)       Next priority: a card matching the above criteria except that one of the following applies: it (a) focuses partly on other players or a team, or mainly on a particular game or event, or masquerades as a ticket; (b) identifies the player primarily as a draft pick or signee; (c) is oversized or undersized; (d) pictures the player entirely in monochrome or black-and-white; (e) for the primary identifying information of the player, misspells his name, uses an uncommon nickname or an uncommon variation of his name, and/or identifies him by a name that the player no longer uses; (f) was issued more than a dozen years before or after the year it represents in this collection; (g) has a primary player photo that is clearly smaller than some other aspect of the front of the card; (h) identifies the player as a major leaguer, and is permitted to use MLB logos/team names, but also identifies the player as a member of a non-MLB team or league, or, in the card's main picture, shows the player in a Future's Game uniform or a clearly non-MLB uniform; or (i) identifies the player as a major leaguer, but is not permitted to (and does not) use MLB logos/team names, and shows the player in a neutral or non-MLB uniform.  Year criteria is same as above.

   3)      Next priority: a card matching the above criteria except that it is (a) a game or contest card; (b) a schedule card; (c) a postcard; (d) a sticker or stamp; (e) a card that doesn't name the player or identifies him by a name that he never used; (f) a card that shows the player not in uniform; and/or (g) a card with more than one element from the previous bullet point.  Year criteria is same as above.

   4)      Next priority: a card matching the above criteria, except that it is not permitted to (and does) use team logos and/or team names. Year criteria is same as above.

   5)      A card issued in any year during or within a year after the player's professional career that otherwise parallels #1 above, except that it identifies the player with a non-MLB professional, collegiate or national team, or doesn't identify the league/team but shows him in a non-MLB or neutral uniform.  Licensed if a license is required.

   6)      A card issued in any year during or within a year after the player's professional career that otherwise parallels #2 above, except that it identifies the player with a non-MLB professional, collegiate or national team, or doesn't identify the league/team but shows him in a non-MLB or neutral uniform.  Licensed if a license is required.

   7)      A card issued in any year during or within a year after the player's professional career that otherwise parallels #3 above, except that it identifies the player with a non-MLB professional, collegiate or national team, or doesn't identify the league/team but shows him in a non-MLB or neutral uniform.  Licensed if a license is required.
