Sam has an AMAZING close master set of 2011 Gypsy Queen. Relics, framed mini's, mini's, parallels, autographs.....ALL OF IT. He lacks only a couple of white whales, and by that I mean cards like the Koufax autograph, Hank Aaron auto, etc. It's incredible and a true testament to the set-builder and collector that Sam is. Sam's also just a good guy....one of the first that welcomed me into our modern hobby digital community.
I made the mistake of not holding on to all of my mini cards. I still have a bunch, but as I was not quite sure how to handle these odd-sized micro cards (no such thing existed in my previous collecting life?!), I sent off many of them to good homes in the form of trades or goodwill packages.
That being said, I was all about the insert sets and SPs. In fact, I wasn't even quite sure what a "SP" was, but I think this may have worked in my favor. Kind of an 'ignorance is bliss' sort of event. I never got frustrated over how challenging it was to find these 50 cards, I simply kept hunting as a happy, numerically and linearly-inclined set-builder.
Man, those were the days!
Anyways, I still need a couple inserts and SPs but thanks to Sam, I can now cross these off the list. Thanks, Sam!
|OH, did I leave a glare on Buchholz's card or is that just a foreign substance?|
