I have a tough time finding oddballs and inserts I don't already have. Finding goodies I need for my sampler collection generally entails house spent at discount boxes or spending big bucks on hits and rarities.
For those of you who are new to this blog and don't know, I am attempting to put together a type set, with one card from every set issued. There are over 30,000 baseball and multi-sport sets that are in my list. I have over 5500 unique samples right now. I still haven't found a good name for this collection. I originally called it the Super Collection, which is pretty lame in my mind, and I've been referring to it lately as the Sampler Collection. I was thinking of calling it the Set Set. What do you think?
With the additions above, my Sampler Collection is over 18% complete! It takes approximately 312 cards to increase by 1%, without taking into account any new releases from this point. My goal is to reach at least 25%, which means I need 2200 more unique cards.
Tomorrow will be the last post from this series, and Saturday I'm off to another show for some pickups! At this point, my contest should be closed, and hopefully tonight I'll have the winners announced if I haven't already (I'm writing this post early in the week in anticipation of the arrival of family members).
