The Joy of a completed set: 2009 OPC baseball

Yes indeed, the set that was started because of a commercial from the 70's inspiring me to figure out how many packs it took to complete a set.  2009 Upper Deck O-Pee-Chee is in the books.

In the end, I cracked 2 hobby boxes, 7 blaster boxes, and 8 loose packs for a total of 185 packs before I decided that I had way too many duplicates, and would just complete the remainder via trades or purchasing singles.

The last 14 cards came in this week via a Sportlots purchase, and finally this set is put to bed.

Pictured above are the final 14, and outside of Jeter none of them cost me a kings ransom.  I've now completed 14 sets since I started the blog last August, and the train should keep rolling over the next couple of weeks here as I am very close to completing 2 other sets.

For those who followed, thanks for following along.  Who knows, maybe I'll be able to find another larger set like this someday to try and see how many packs it takes to complete. 

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Congrats. It's a pretty cool set.

  2. Congrats! 2009 O-Pee-Chee is a very underrated set in my opinion

  3. great job! It looks great in a binder. I finished mine awhile ago... still need 5 or 6 inserts to finish off the master set.

  4. Good job! I considered putting this set together back in '09, so it is nice to see it completed.

  5. Congrats, Robert! Glad I could have a hand in this.

  6. Congrats,just started getting some of these thru trades and finding a few packs here and there.
