With the card below, I currently sit at 95.94% complete (excluding 1/1s)
Many of the Charlie Morton cards I needed for my super collection were extremely rare cards (1/1s), minor league cards, or low print runs (/50 or less) The low print run but accessible card I thought I would never see was Charlie's 2002 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor numbered to 50.

I naturally have Charlie Morton as one of my saved searches on ebay and a few months back a seller was selling off a large part of his collection which included the BGS graded 9.5 2008 Black Refractor (/25). In the background of the image he had posted I saw the golden beauty above and knew I had to have it. Through several emails with the seller I was able to convince him to let it go.
Only 3 non 1/1s remain for my supercollection and I fear that the 2012 Topps Update Factory Orange will be the toughest to acquire since many people who purchase the factory set don't open them for the orange variants.
These are the cards I currently need in my collection.
The red indicates that the card is more than 1 copy
Yellow indicates that it is a 1/1
As you can see most of my needs are 1/1s and I have actually crossed 4 off already this year.
