Did I Finish A Couple Of Sets?

Recently I received a nice package of cards from my want list from Tom from the blog "The Angels, In Order". He also included a note hoping I still needed these.

Since I am completely unorganized (even more so than usual now), I have to say I honestly don't know. My want lists are not updated but any generosity from a fellow blogger (and author of a blog I enjoy) is greatly appreciated.

He sent me twelve cards from 2007 Upper Deck. I know I still need quite a bit from that set.

I also received fourteen cards from 2009 Upper Deck.

 Lastly he sent me a couple of cards, which according to my want lists are the last ones I need.

First is the 1989 Donruss Nolan Ryan...

...and then a 1989 Score Jim Eppard.

So according to my wantlist I've now completed 1989 Donruss and 1989 Score, two junk wax sets that I should have finished off years ago. Now if I could only find them to verify that they truly are completed. (That's one of the many reasons I've decided to buy far less cards this year and focus on sorting through the thousands of cards I have sitting in monster boxes around the house.)

Thanks Tom for the cards and helping me finish a couple of sets!

2001 Fleer Red Sox 100th Set

Much like the 2003-04 Parkhurst Original Six Boston set that I've blogged about in the past, this Red Sox set released in 2001 was also five dollars a pack. At that point in my life, I really didn't have much money to spend on cards, so this was a treat as opposed to a regular purchase.

At a recent card show I found forty cards that I needed for the set. At a dime a piece I spent four dollars for all of them. Since the set is a hundred cards, I got almost half the set for less than a price of a pack.

I bought another pack of the Brighams Coca-Cola set in hopes of finding the Carl Yastrzemski card that I need. I was unsuccessful.

I also picked up a trio of 1985 O-Pee-Chee Red Sox. It wasn't until I did this post that I realized I bought two copies of the Jerry Remy.

We'll wrap this post up with three from 1983 Fleer.
