For 2009, I just didn’t buy very many baseball cards because I wasn’t exactly working full time hours. I ended up buying a factory set on discount to get Series 1 and 2.
For 2010, I didn’t want to pay the ridiculous price for a hobby box or a jumbo box, so I purchased a completed Series 1 (and later a Series 2) from eBay. Since I don’t usually complete the subsets from base Topps, this was very affordable.
For this year, I broke down and bought a jumbo box. I’m sure I’ll post some more at some point about the box … but not today. It did, however, leave me three cards short of the complete set. Thanks to a recent trade with BA Benny, I’m now just a single card short.
Anyone have an extra card of number 247 picturing Starlin Castro, that they want to trade away?
