Well, I ordered the Redwood or Padouk version of this set from Shelby.  And I am working on getting extra Queens for it.

With all the talk lately about sets not being inspected, I am happy to tell you that my set has been inspected by not only Shelby himself, but by everyone that looked at the pictures he posted in that now closed thread.  Yeah, this is a group backed inspection.  Thank you all very much!

You see, Shelby is sending me that exact same set.

I will post pictures when it arrives.

And yes, you read it correctly.  I am working with Shelby to get the extra Queens for this set.

Seriously, are the extra Queens that big of a deal?

Normally, the extra Queens are only a deal when playing a rated game.  And in all honesty I really could live without them, but...

I blame Frank Camaratta for this.  He ruined me back in about 2000 or so.
