Set Complete

With card no. 262 Jim Winn completes the set. It took:
1 Wax box: 36 packs
2 Cello boxes: 48 packs
1 Rack box: 12 packs
That's 2676 cards opened. Plus a handful of commons (14) I purchased on eBay to round it out.

I loved seeing all the rookies (McGwire, Canseco, Bo) as well as the old guys like Mike Schmidt and Nolan Ryan. And of course my old favorite Marty Barrett. I will definitely move onto a new set and try this again.

I think maybe one without wax packs with gum!

98.2% Complete

Just finished my 2nd cello box, with this amazing group to get me close to the goal! 14 cards to go!!! Will need to do an audit soon to make sure that's accurate! I have completed the 600 and 700s at this point.

2nd Box Complete

Just finished opening box 2, a cello box. Cards were in a much better condition than the wax box. I am now 83.21% complete. I have about 12 rack packs to go next. Also finally pulled Cal in both of my last two cello packs.
