Over the past few weeks I've been trying to collect the cards I need to finish my 2011 sets.
But the last card is a story of perserverance. Remember last month when I told the story of the eBay seller who totally sucked? This is a story of a different seller. I found a card I wanted included in a lot of Delmon Young cards on eBay, and the Buy-It-Now price was right, so I jumped on it. In a few days, the lot arrived - missing about 1/3 of the cards. I really didn't care about any of the other cards in the lot. The card I wanted was one of the cards missing.
I emailed the dealer, he apologized, and in a few more days, another package arrived. But instead of the Delmon Young cards I was due, I received a small lot of Delwyn Young cards. Hm. Close, but still, not the card I needed!
Emailing the dealer again, he was greatly apologetic and said he'd ship the correct cards. Off to Georgia I went, and when I returned, a now-familiar envelope was waiting!
And inside was the card I wanted!
Of course, I now have about a dozen Delwyn Young cards available (anyone? anyone? Bueller? Bueller?) and a couple dozen Delmon Young cards as well (I repeat - anyone? anyone? Bueller? Bueller?).
While not every 2011 set I attempted is complete, I did pretty good last year. I'm ready for 2012! Let the insanity begin!
