This is NOT routine!

I've been back in Georgia for a week today. Last week while home I was supposed to meet up with a couple of trading buds, but I had car problems. I got my car back today $420.00.  OUCH! Anyways, one of the guys sent me the medium flat rate box of cards he had for me. I opened it up and started sorting, I was pleased.

Once sorted I started marking off of my paper lists which is my normal routine (then I would go to my xl spreadsheets, and lastly the website. The problem started from the first stack of cards I wanted to get done. 2016 Topps Update.

These 13 cards caused me the most trouble.  First thing that went wrong, was I started marking them off of 2015 instead. Then after fixing the numbers I marked off (completley differnt than the 13 above), went to the correct page 2016, but I marked off cards from the base set and not the Update, so I had to redo those too, before getting it right the third time. Keep in mind here we are not just talking about 13 cards. Bob D (the bud) sent 58 2016 Update. UGGGA! Once all fixed I managed to find a reason to pull another 28 cards for various reasons, for my other collections or other people. All in all I put most of the cards to good use with only 17 for the dupes box.

The rest of the box was filled with greatness. This is just a sampling of the set needs I pulled. Bob sent 111 cards total here whereas I needed only 17, but pulled another 39 for misc. reasons like above.

Bob sent 86 of these which I needed 35 and pulled another 26.

Bob sent 109 of these, needed 57 and all but 5 were pulled for me and others.

72 sent, needed 52 none for the dupe box.

152 sent, needed 51, pulled 64 leaving 17 for the dupe box.

Who says baseball cards can't be educational? These subet cards are the last 50 cards in the base set (151-200) of 2008 UD A Piece of History. Bob sent 36 of the 50 different with plenty of extras.

The above three scans are all part of the 2001 UD Hall of Famers set.

I really enjoyed this box of cards and after the initial hiccup, I fell right back in my normal routine and knocked them out (all 3 steps) with another gliche.

Have a great weekend folks.

  1. I really miss when companies could put out licensed set of all retired players. You have some great ones there (no pun intended).
