Speaking of the Journey, I am slowly winding my way toward my goal of completing my masterpieces sets. As you may know, I have been 2 away of the 2008 Masterpieces Green /75 Baseball and Football sets for some time I'm 28 away from the Blue /50 Baseball set and in the teens for the Football /50 sets. Slowly but surely. Wax prices have sky rocketed some I am a bit stuck with waiting for singles to show
As for the 07's, I am well below 50 for all of the /50 and above sets. There are 630 total cards in all 7 sets, thus I am over 92% there. It has been an extremely expensive endeavor and I will be glad to finish, but after such a monumental task, I 'm not really sure where to go next.
