Default That awkward moment when...

You still need 3 letters for a nameplate and the print run only has 2 cards left.

I think I recall seeing the "A" a long time ago but I don't remember if the "J" was actually attached to it. Anyway, I figured I'd show these off because who knows if I'll ever complete it.

Awesome stuff regardless. At least you've got the 3 middle pieces so that the core of the puzzle is together. Good luck on the other 2.

Clearly the 5 cards will be the full name plate. I would rather they cut it up that way than the time the broke it down to individual letter matted on black paper that didn't even fill the window. Or the time Topps even had the apostrophe sitting by itself. Those are beautiful cards. Congrats on the progress so far!

I have no idea how they'd fit a full JA in one card based upon those pictures. Good luck nonetheless.

Thanks for the compliments so far. Please help me out and keep an eye out for whatever letters might actually exist at this point

Guess they didn't count on any single person going for all of them. Or maybe they were like, "eh, screw it."

The J and A would never fit on 1 card, so even if that first card is a swatch of half of each letter, it's still gona look weird.

Could there be a 1/1 version of these in the form of the "J"?

I know Panini loves to make things artificially scarce like that.

Hard to see how they managed to fit the J and A in the first card.
