I now have a full set as well, acquired from one of the people on that list. More to come whenever I have time to unpack and get some pictures ;)

Still short myself on the blisters. I messaged the guy that has those blisters for sale on ebay to see if he'll sell me three of them. No reply back. A clear smoke just popped up on ebay but it's overpriced. Contacted the seller with my offer. They said the price they have is what the last one sold for which is not true. I don't think they know people can look up completed sold listings in the last 90 days.

This is what I currently have

-Watermelon
-Fire
-Grape
-Gold

Looking for
-Smoke
-Green
-Ice

I know completed sets are even more rare but how many Watermelon Blisters are there? Any others besides myself that have it that are not complete? I kind of want to get an idea of how many exist. Only two sold on ebay last year. Not sure if any of you bought one of those. Maybe less than 20?

As for the Smoke being "overpriced", I'd disgree. It's going to sell at $275, it stands without cracks and only minor denting. I'd say if you can get any of them in solid shape with minimal wear at or below $250, you're doing good. At auctions they tend to hover closer to $200-$225, but sometimes you may want to stretch a little to complete a set.

Because any color can go through a drought, spike in price, and then you'll regret missing out. I remember when Grape was perceived as pretty rare (probably 3rd behind Fire / Watermelon), yet it has cooled off substantially. I also remember when Green and Ice Blue were perceived as some of the most common... and yet look, you still need both of them. Prices / rarity / availability are always subject to change, so it is best to not put them off, especially if you're only talking $20-$40 from where you want to be on price.

That's keysersoze from NA, and it is his dupe. Also, don't let ddrnite see that you posted this, this is the 4th reference to the Watermelon on the board. It is apparently a big deal :)

Didn't someone need an Ice Blue? Has some wear but it'll be hard to beat $200 on it.

Thanks for the love guys @Milage and Strider
This sure comes in as a big coincedence but I saw one today, after not looking for it for months.

Condition on that one is pretty horrible though. Meets the bare minimum of sealed and that's about it.
