The Joy of a Completed Page OF SHORT PRINTS!!!
I thought I would take a brief break from talking about 2010 Topps to write about 2008 Topps, Allen and Ginter. I was late to this party and didn’t rip any until just a few months ago, but my luck has been great and the set is getting very close. I received an amazing package from Democratic Roadkill featuring all kinds of goodies including the final cards on my A&G want list to finish off the set. Well, it turns out that the list wasn’t accurate-someone said they were sending something and it never got to me. Last night I thought I was done with this one, but after putting the new cards away I see that I am close, but not there yet… I am feeling the joy of about 25 completed pages, but more importantly I am feeling the joy of a completed page of short prints! Yep, cards #327-335 are mine! I am 100% done with the fifty United State cards. I am also the new owner of a whole bunch of minis and World’s Greatest Victories cards. Anyway, here is the completed page and here is what I need to finish the remainder of the pages: 43,55,83,95,238,305,315,318,320,341 and 348. I say this often, but THANKS DUANE!!! You rock! The cards were absolutely amazing. Pitchers and catchers report TOMORROW! That means I will probably be bumping into Matt Wieners and Zach Duke at 7-11. Up next: more trades, my first Carl Crawford card from 2010, more 2010 Topps, 3 from 3s and cards of the day... Go Rays! Troll out.
