It was about three weeks ago when I posted about my futile attempts to secure the last card to the 1986 Larry Fritsch Negro League Stars set. I had preferred to trade for a copy, but after a couple weeks of crickets I finally broke down and purchased the final card from Ebay.

Game Plan for 2022 and the Joy of a Completed Set
I'm not sure what set I should build next, but I would love to try another Negro League set or maybe a HOF player set, similar to Panini Cooperstown back in 2012 and 2013. Maybe Fanatics, who recently bought Topps, will have some new ideas in the works and we'll have something different on the horizon.
In other news, I've collected Dan Vogelbach cards for eleven years now. I know, right? Time sure does go by fast. For 2022 I've decided to focus on filling in any gaps from the previous years AND only add one base card of the Vogelmonster from each set. I did a quick calculation and 84% (604/721) of my Vogelbach cards are parallels. My favorite player has averaged about 11 different unique cards each year. I'm done with parallels... you know, unless it's from 2011-2021.
I hope everyone's new year is off to a great start! Thanks for reading!
