About Me

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

I've been MIA again and sometimes they cost a lot.

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.

Man... so envious of your Masterpiece collection. Best of luck on finding those final pieces.
