Update on The Collection
Thanks to JV from Treasure Never Buried, I am now that much closer to finishing the 2008 Allen & Ginter base set. I am now only 14 cards away from finishing so if you have any of those, please leave a comment or e-mail me for trades. I still have a bunch of doubles from 2008 A&G as well as 2008 Baseball Heroes and 2007 Bowman Chrome. I am still waiting on two more trades from Lonestarr and Chris from Nachos Grande to go through the mail. Supposedly, I am going to receive them soon.
Anyway, the collection I am referring to in the title is not the A&G set, but rather the Lincecum Collection that I have building for the past two months. JV sent me one of the largest Lincecum packages through the trade. Not only that, but they were 7 cards that I didn’t have and also of those 7, 4 of them are rookie cards! This has bumped up my collection to 42 different cards! Keep those cards coming. I am very lacking in cards for 2006 (I guess only TriStar came out with cards that year), and also 2007 – the majority of cards come from 2008. If you have any cards that isn’t on my collection list, please comment or e-mail so we can work out a trade.
I have mentioned a couple times that I have recently thought about selling off the collection because I’ve had a fall on hard times, but it’s things like these that keep the collection alive and well. I also feel like I would rather sell off the cards that I bought off eBay, but it’s harder to sell off the cards that I got from trades. (Be it as it may that the cards through trade are base cards so they are intrinsically hard to sell, but still!) I also updated my Flickr pictures so now it is up to date with all 42 cards (43 if you count that one that is undergoing inspection from USPS for insurance liability).
