Thanks to the generosity of Dan from Saints of the Cheap Seats, and a little bit of luck at the card shop, my lists are dwindling down to nothing – which is a beautiful feeling. I hope to have 07 Masterpieces knocked out by the time A&G hits the streets, and maaaaaaaaaybe this year’s Heritage as well, even if that Dustin Pedroia Mayo is proving borderline-impossible to find. Anyway, here’s where the lists stand at the moment:
07 UD Masterpieces: 2, 5, 16, 17, 27, 43, 51, 55, 65, 68, 81, 83
08 Upper Deck Goudey: 210, 260, 264, 301, 302, 304, 306, 312, 313, 317, 318, 320, 324, 326, 328, 329
09 Topps Heritage: 426, 444, 451, 462, 466, 471, 473, 474, 483, 484, 485, 492, 494
New Age Performers: 6, 11
Mayo: AP, CJ, DP, DW, IS, RB (I may be close to acquiring the Chipper, but am not quite cocky enough to take it off the list yet).
I’d really like to get Goudey knocked off by year’s end too – if anyone has any of those SPs they want to get rid of, I’ll even buy ’em off of you.
Also, I’ll be moving at month’s end to St Paul, MN, and will be paying double-rent until August. If we work out a trade, be sure to ask for my new address just so I can get in the habit of typing St Paul, instead of Bloomington. In semi-related news to the move, I am going to dump a bunch of commons at the local card store pretty soon. If anybody wants me to pull aside any teams for them, I’ll gladly do so – I currently have nothing for the Indians or Dodgers, and I’ve set my Reds aside to go to Nachos Grande. Anything else, lemme know, peeps.
Pettitte cards: I’ve been mostly picking up oddball 90s stuff off of Beckett’s Marketplace lately, and winning a few .99 eBay g/u auctions. Thanks to Mario, I’ve also added his 09 Topps and Series II UD cards to the binder, which has pushed me past the 800 different mark. The goal: 1000 different by year end.
Okay, back to not posting for weeks.
