Since I have been in Valdosta helping my uncle, I haven't taken any new additions back home to be placed in the binder (which would be the ideal way to show off the completed pages). Needless to say I have 2 years worth of these to be placed in the binder. I finally scanned up what I have here in GA. and boxed them up to take back home next trip. 2018 definitely was a good year for this collection. So, I will show you ALL of the card backs so that you can see the numbers being added. I will say this as of today the first "missing" number is 655 (page 73) and so happens to be a number without a Brave thus far.
These 9 closed out several pages.
As did these.
The first 6 here closed out pages too, or at least they will once I put them in the binder. I can't believe that I didn't have the Chipper RC already in the binder. After all, I probably only had a dozen of those dupes since I started this thing in 2013. The 84' Fleer checklist #654 is a Braves checklist on the front, and that marks the last card without an interruption.
Topps Total was a big help with some high numbers.
The Pro Cards minor league set you see here helped out a ton. Originally I wasn't going to use them, but I decided it was that or there would be NO BRAVES for those numbers. They are Braves cards, and a lot of future MLB'ers.
In case you are wondering the front these cards are a beautiful dark blue border.
Now this Pro Cards set Macon Braves was a sure fire addition, knocking out a bunch of needed numbers.
Yep, got a steal on this set too. $4.00 delivered. You can't grab a copy of that Chipper for that.
Again Total helping out. The Lykes card above and below don't seem to have numbers. I think my plan was to place them in the slots that DO NOT have Braves cards available yet. It's been so long I forgot.
My original plan was to stop at 999, but I do have a few above that. 2009 Upper Deck has a run of Braves #d 973-1009 so that will be a plus once I already have them twice before (Braves set and set builds).
Here are the numbers I still NEED that MAY have available Braves: 655, 664, 740, 764, 799, 801, 803, 804, (805, 806) 1/1's, not sure what to do here, 808, 809, 810 (1/1), 812, 815, 851, 864, 886-889, 891-894, 896-899, 902-908, 911-915, 917-928, 930-971, 973-1009.
Topps Now maybe an outlet for some high numbers too.
Here are numbers that definitely do NOT have Braves as of today: 661, 670, 679, 680, 726, 729, 737, 738, 741, 746, 757, 762, 765-768, 773-775, 783, 785, 786, 793, 796, 798, 813, 814, 848, 849, 852, and 900.
Sounds like next years "custom project" mix in the 1/1's and I can close out this Franken-set.
See ya later alligators!
