The 2008 UD Masterpieces adventure is over. The set was finally completed today. The last 4 cards of the set that I needed were all SPs, and arrived at my doorstep within the past 3 weeks.
First, a couple of ebay auction wins provided a couple of great catchers, Carlton Fisk and Johnny Bench:
When I was down to 2, I received one of the two from Pat at the Hot Corner Cards blog, Ryne Sandberg:
When I got down to 1, I hit eBay running, and within 4 days, Bob Gibson showed up on my doorstep, in a PWE no less...
Great cards indeed. That's the 23rd set completed since I started the blog, and also means that one of the Fab Five has been completed.
I finally decided to add a hockey set to the Fab Five, the 99/00 UD MVP silver signature parallel set. I only need 9 more to complete that set, hopefully that task will not require a year or two to complete.
thanks for reading, Robert
