Honestly I thought this set was going to take much less time. First, the set is only 86 cards due to 4 not being made. Second, there were many more cases of Baseball than Football, thus the insertion rates of reds is higher. Some boxes have 2 and you end up getting about 20-24 per case. In baseball you get 16 and the set is 120 cards.
Regardless I ran into a speedbump when I opened 1 case of Masterpieces Football and the only reds I got were of Early Doucett III. I bought huge lots of these but made little if any headway toward the set and spent hours on end cruising ebay to find them. I have 8-12 of many players and I average 4 of most players.
I have no idea how some of you do it. Sets like the Black border A and G minis that are 350 cards? No way I can do that, I am having enough issues with my Mayo Mini set and Murad, although I am sure I can finish them on comc at any time. Not so with these sets. Sportlots, COMC, EBAY, Blowout Forums, etc
I have been actively working on the set for well over a year and for the record, the final card was James Hardy #33. I got it for free off of Freedom Card Board.
So now I have completed 07 BB both Greens, 08 Baseball and Football Black and Red. The Baseball reds are not numbered and the Football is /199
Anyway, here they are:
