I have a stack of about 80 repeats, highlighted by three cards each of Gary Carter, Adam Jones, Sandy Koufax and Albert Pujols. My collation wasn't great. In all, I have about 230 base cards and I was hoping to complete the full 200-card set, but with 80 repeats I guess that leaves me needing about 50 cards, give or take. It is what it is. I thought about getting another box, but with my luck I would have added to the Carter, Jones, Koufax and Pujols piles.
Here's what I still need:
1 Kris Bryant - Chicago Cubs
6 Freddie Freeman - Atlanta Braves
10 Chris Sale - Boston Red Sox
37 Eric Hosmer - Kansas City Royals
39 Paul Goldschmidt - Arizona Diamondbacks
45 Pedro Martinez - Boston Red Sox
50 Mike Trout - Los Angeles Angels
61 Mookie Betts - Boston Red Sox
64 Steven Wright - Boston Red Sox
90 Dellin Betances - New York Yankees
92 Edwin Encarnacion - Cleveland Indians
114 Ryne Sandberg - Chicago Cubs
120 Clayton Kershaw - Los Angeles Dodgers
168 Giancarlo Stanton - Miami Marlins
175 Nolan Arenado - Colorado Rockies
178 Jose Abreu - Chicago White Sox
199 Rougned Odor - Texas Rangers
Ouch... looking at that list I can't help but notice some of the bigger names like Bryant, Trout, Griffey and Nolan Ryan. I guess I'm lucky that I pulled a Judge and a Bellinger. Although I wasn't lucky enough to pull any duplicates of either.
If you've busted any of this product and you're willing to trade, please let me know. I think I'm going to wait on posting a list of my duplicates and inserts at this point, as I would like to use them as trade fodder to complete my base set before offering them to blogs. If you're working on a set yourself, please let me know what you need. I would love to help you out!
Oh, and no worries, I've got a few dupes and inserts set aside for those of you who have had made any prior comments.
This is a blog about baseball cards, so . . .
Thanks for stopping by!
