Another week has flown by. My brother and I hit up the Trivia night at a local restaurant. We went 2 weeks ago (trivia is my brother's thing) he has never missed a jeopardy episode! He and our brother-in-law are always challenging each other. My brother wanted to buy my dinner for cutting his grass as is normal. We went and he and I played as solo contestants whereas the rest were playing as teams. Long story short I won (by 50+ points), got $25.00 too. I gave it to him. We went back this week and played together as a team..... we won (by 60+ points)..... Another $25.00.
Now that we are talking numbers let's get the triple 4's data out of the way.
I have 120 cards in the binder (I know that I have more sitting in the trade boxes, but I am just trying to get through this Franken-Set. Beckett says there 1,319 baseball cards with that number. No player had more than two appearances and there was 8 of those. One team made double digits this week with 10 the Blue Jays followed by the Yankees with 8, and Phillies with 7. Not bad for just 120 cards. The Jays will get a repeat here as they are the next TRADE DAY team.
Here is a prime example of why no one really needs to send me any of the cards missing. You know darn well I have a base 1993 Topps sitting in my trade boxes. Now on the other hand, if you want to send vintage cards that are missing from this Franken-Set well I am happy to accept those.
Lots of gaps here at the end and I figure there are a lot of either rookies or stars bearing some of those numbers and once i clear the PC dupes I'll be able to add those in. Of course this themed post run will long be over before that happens.
Have a great weekend.
