Help me finish my Alpha set?

I am getting close to finishing my Beckett-graded Alpha set with the best of what's currently available. Many thanks to the people on this board(particularly Len) who have been tremendously helpful in putting this set together: ... as_2294964

My ultimate goal is 100% Gem Mint, but currently there are not Gem Mint Beckett-graded copies of 39 cards. For many of those cards I wager there will never be a Gem Mint copy.

According to Beckett, there are 17 cards currently graded that can further upgrade my set (not counting sub-grades). All of these are "one-of" cards. I have no idea where to find most of them or if they are potentially for sale. I would like to start a list of them here and of who owns them (with initials only for privacy reasons). My hope is that those on this forum will be able to help me locate the owners of the additional cards and perhaps I will be able to acquire them. For the ones listed below where I know the owner, I already know they will not be selling/trading to me anytime soon. Maybe that's the case with all of the remaining cards, but it would be nice to know. Can't blame me for trying. Here goes:

Balance 9.5 (?)
COP: Blue 9.5 (?)
Drudge Skeletons 10 (?)
Green Ward 9.5 (BN)
Helm of Chatzuk 10 (?)
Jade Statue 10 (?)
Mind Twist 9.5 (DE)
Mox Jet 9.5 (CD)
Mox Sapphire 9.5 (?)
Psionic Blast 9.5 (?)
Rock Hydra 10 (?)
Time Vault 9.5 (CD)
Tundra 10 (?)
Verduran Enchantress 9.5 (BN)
Wall of Stone 10 (?)
Will-O'-the-Wisp 9.5 (DE)
Zombie Master 10 (DE)

That's all folks! Look forward to (hopefully) some responses. Maybe PM is the best way for privacy of the card owners.

I know the location of the Drudge and I think the Rock Hydra.

Damn, there's a 10 Drudge? How'd I miss that!

I've got a 9.5 Drudge if that tickles your fancy :p

Jon you can stop looking for these because they aren't for sale.

drudge, rock hydra, jade statue, jump, wall of stone

Also the Psi blast is in Germany.
