I'll share the cards from today's pull as usual, but then thought I'd do a "where we are at" with the summary below. Specifically, I'm curious where I am at compared to the Santa Lot, and if this is better or worse so far, as I know it is going to be bigger regardless.
So, in comparison, the Santa Lot was just shy of 13k cards in total, and keeping in mind back then, I would keep one of any baseball or hockey card I didn't have whereas now, I at least have a list of sets I collect rather than "everything".
That said, I had 238 Toronto cards in the Santa Lot, and am already over 220 - so should beat that one.
Inserts and similar, I have blown out of the water compared to the 457 from the Santa Lot - heck, beat that just from the 1992 Topps Gold set keepers.
Error cards, I am already ahead from just the 1991-92 O Pee Chee set alone almost.
As for the overall baseball and hockey keepers - all in - I am just a little short - I'm actually ahead if for the keepers, you include the non-sports stuff I am keeping.
So verdict for this is, the 20 in 20 Lot is a better lot overall in the content and use to me - don't think that can really change, even if most all the rest is stuff I pass on, don't collect, etc.
Still - will continue to be fun to go through!
Good to see you end up with so many keepers including that Hasek. 1992-93 Upper Deck was one of my favorite hockey sets of the early '90s, and probably my second favorite UD set after 1990-91.ReplyDelete

Exactly! Sometimes it's important to remember it's a hobby and should be fun - if it isn't, why are you doing it?Delete
