One goal for today's packs - get the last six missing cards from this set...even if half of them are Habs.
Yeah - out of six cards needed, only the one picked up in the final stack, definitely disappointing to be 5 cards short (11, 13, 14, 48 and 57). Definitely stinks that with about 250+ cards, wasn't able to complete the set.
I was able to get the Leaf added set down to needing just one more card...43 - Sid Smith, and was able to get two error cards out of the set as well.
Kinds of a downer - so rather than keep going on the box - let's take a look at something else...let's get back to the Santa Lot...
This makes an even dozen the number of base cards I have in 2003-04 McDonalds cards. There are 61 cards, but the last six are autographed, so let's count it out of 55 and say we are over 20% done. Would have been interesting if his career had been more or less injury free, though I don't know if he would have had a Toronto pit stop if that happened.
With the damage - I expect this had been stapled to something which is unfortunate - condition is too rough for me to keep, but nice to see early 80s baseball.
Well, definitely heavy on the Rangers in today's cards. Not necessarily a bad thing, but with Leafs would have been better. The Mora is apparently a short print. I debate whether I should go back and take out base short prints and include these as inserts or as error/variations, but in my mind, if there are multiple photos, I can understand as variations, but when there is only a base card short printed, I don't consider it an insert - wonder what everyone else thinks.
Funny that all the Gridiron cards were new for the "get rid of" collection.
Now - that made me feel a little better!
