Okay - status report on this one is I have 144 of the 200 card set, even though I probably have about 300 cards in total - plenty of dupes.
Today, another 50 from the set - so I figured I might as well see how many I can knock off of the base set as a whole.
It's actually quite easy to do in the middle of April, and in the middle of April, I really need "quite easy" anything.
So, with 50 more cards, I knocked another 11 missing cards off that list. Definitely a good sign, and definitely makes me think this set has a good chance of going all the way..
Still wouldn't keep it though, as much as I really want to have a complete set, just because it is starting to get really close.
I am a perfectionist who enjoys order and everything having it's place, so a complete set - even if not a keeper - is a thing of beauty.
