With the slow down on the serial numbered insanity set lately, Alex got my interest piqued again with the 4 cards he sent me. What was so great about these 4? One was from my favorite team, and the other three were from the team I thought might never hit the halfway point.
Let's start with the 3 Orioles that he sent.
|Serial # 84|
This might be one of the best names in the 1500 card set!! Chance Sisco, how awesome is that name. Even better is the fact that this card is serial numbered 84, which brings the number of 2-digit serial numbered cards I need to 3 [EDIT: A little updating and I actually need 4 double digit cards, which shows that when I trade a card, I need to remove it right away]. Chance is the 23rd card out of 50 for the Orioles.
|Serial Number 912|
Johnson is the 24th card for the O's...
|Serial # 1211|
How often do you see two players on the same card whose last names end in "ino". Every time I see a double play card I think of GCRL, it's almost ingrained in me now....
Andino finally gets the O's to the halfway mark!! 25 out of 50 is where they stand, only 1 card behind the Rockies.
|Serial # 679|
That's a beauty, eh! Had to get a different bird on the board, and what better choice than Jose Reyes. I'm praying he stays healthy this year (I hear he has either had an MRI, or going to have one...here we go again). Reyes is the 45th card out of 50 for the Jays in the set.
These 4 bring the total up to 1098 out of 1500, or 73.2% complete.
Alex, thank you for the great additions to the insanity set, they are much appreciated!
Thanks for reading, Robert
