We traded checklists for sets from the late 80s and early 90s and the next you know I had 549 cards to collate into the unfinished sets of my childhood. Additionally, I unloaded a bunch of duplicates that Jeff needed for his sets. Talk about a win-win for both sides!
Jeff was also kind enough to send along a quartet of Cubs to add to my collection as well:
Thanks for the Cub love!
What else was in the box? Well, included within the '89 Topps were a couple of rookie cards.
complete this set!
Here's the short list: #50 - George Bell, #185 - Claudell Washington, #247 - Shawn Hillegas, and #490 - Chris Sabo (RC)
There was more Topps... I needed 299 cards from the 1992 Topps set, but now I'm down to a more manageable 131.
1988 Donruss: needed 313, only need 223 now.
1990 Donruss: needed 296, but only need 210 cards now.
If you're looking for a place to dump your junk wax, please take a look at my want lists. And if you're looking for help, may I suggest Jeff? I think I've only partially unburied him.
Thanks for a great trade, Jeff!
