I have just a quick post for today, but it's something of a milestone post for yours truly.
My sister, who frequents my blog more than any sane person should, has made three donations to my collection.
The first two of these gifts pieces of cardboard filled TWO gaps in my Cubs FrankenSet.
Jane has now given me a total of eight cards (including the epic Iowa Cubbie Bear) which have found their way into the FrankenSet, and these two filled the place holders for cards #530 and #586.
Only twenty-seven vacant slots left to fill!
The third card from Jane is the LAST card for 2012 Panini Triple Play master set. I opened somewhere around six boxes of packs and never did pill this Nolan Ryan Hall of Fame Card. The subset usually only had two or three of these cards per box, which in my book counts as short-printed. Let's not talk about all the weird looks I received at card shows and brick & mortar card shops when I asked if they had any Triple Play cards.
Now that the Triple Play set has been put to bed I don't have any other sets left to finish. I was working on twelve sets back in January, and I set a goal to complete six of them before 2016, but instead I knocked off each and every last one! It's been a good collecting year. That's for sure!
Thanks for the help, Jane!
