What must be the most comprehensive Olympic team set ever issued is finally in the books.
Upper Deck and MRM released a huge set of Japanese National Team players who were slated to compete in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. I know not every player on every national team isn't there - several baseball players are missing for sure. But speaking of which:
These two cards finished my set... sort of. After getting both in the mail from a Yahoo seller, I sorted out all of my cards, and found I was missing the last card in the set (a checklist) and I had two of a different checklist. I scrounged around all of my boxes to see if I overlooked it (and I might still have), but I didn't find it. So I stopped off at a local shop and was happy to find they had one, so while the checklist is technically my last card to finish the set, I'm counting Nakata as the final card I needed!
Once I get the whole set scanned, I'm going to consider how I can present it all on the blog... 264 cards are a lot!
Until next time...
