I have been MIA, I know I know. I recently started a job in Bend, OR and I have been looking for permanent housing out here and thus have no place to chase the Topps parallel sets that I have set out to build. It' s really bumming me out especially since I was really ready to get at it when I was posting in February. Funny enough, I used to wonder how people abandon their blogs...now it's a bit clearer. Regardless, I am living in two places and so no place is home.
This does not mean that I am not minding my masterpieces collection. In fact I am now one very big card closer to completing my quest. I am still:
2008 Masterpieces Baseball Green /75
67 - Eric Chavez
short of all of the baseball sets /50 and above from both 2007 and 2008.
As to football I am missing the
2008 Masterpieces Football /50 Metallic
78 - Jack Lambert
away from the /50 and above sets as well as having completed 5 Red Framed Patch /50 sets....and growing. I am still chasing the Burgundy set that is /25. I picked up a mess of these four years ago now...damn it's been that long...and said hell with it and went for the set. I am now three short since I just picked this up:
I had seen a reference to this card about 6 years ago but had never actually seen it. Now I am left with
2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces Burgundy /25
5 - Barry Sanders
19 - Desmond Howard
67 - Paul Hornung
Let me know if you have any leads.
